My Barbecue Sauce recipe!

Wednesday, July 2, 2014
I am so excited to share with you all my very own barbecue sauce recipe! I was inspired to make my recipe, from watching Laura Vitale from Laurainthekitchen! Here's her video Barbecue Sauce. I did not really have any of the ingredients she used, mainly because I was either out of them or never used them before. So then I remembered in her videos she would say use what you have. That's when I looked in my kitchen and gathered these ingredients. I created my recipe months ago and I make very often, just to keep on hand and to perfect my recipe!

I also decided to create my own recipe, because I thought it would be healthier than the store Barbecue Sauce.


1 1/2 teaspoon: Ground Black Pepper

1/2+ 1/4 teaspoon: Barbecue Seasoning

1/2+1/4 teaspoon: Chili Powder

1/8 teaspoon: Cayenne Powder

1 1/2 Tablespoon: Sugar

1 teaspoon: Olive Oil

Onion (I chopped approximately 1/4 of a small onion finely chopped)

1 cup: Brown Sugar

1 1/2 cup: Ketchup

1 cup: Water

-Sauté the onion in olive oil for about 4 minutes on low heat. Then add the black pepper, barbecue seasoning, chili powder, cayenne powder, and sugar mixture. Mix for about 1 to 2 minutes. 
-Add the ketchup and water. Mix to get incorporated, then add the brown sugar and stir again. 
-Let it cook for about 20 to 25 minutes on low to medium heat.
-Let it cool for about 10 minutes (it will get thicker as it cools down)

Final Product:    

             My Baked Barbecue Chicken.
Hope you enjoyed reading my barbecue recipe and let me know if you decided to try it!
