Lots of ways to cook BBQ sauce – just a matter of how sweet you want it. I used a mix of a couple ingredients from different recipes and did make it a little sweeter. It all depends what you are serving it with and how sweet you and your guests like.
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
5 tablespoons light brown sugar (I added a little extra to make a little sweeter)
1/2 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
1/2 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (one of my favorite ingredients)
1 cup water
In a saucepan, combine all ingredients above. Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to simmer. Cook uncovered, stirring frequently, for about an hour.
I had lots of extra sauce that I was able to save in mason jars for other delicious meals. Click to see the delicious Turkey Meatballs recipe I served this delicious Homemade BBQ sauce with.
