How to make barbecue sauce

Why not try?

The exact origins of barbecue sauce are unclear but is believed to have come from South Carolina some time in the 17th century. It is generally a tomato and spice-based sauce; however, there are huge differences in varieties all over the US. Originally used to baste meat during cooking, barbecue sauce is also now more commonly served as a condiment similar to ketchup and brown sauce.

Ingredients

1
Put the sugar, Worcestershire sauce and vinegar into a small saucepan and stir thoroughly to combine
2
Place the pan over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved
3
Add the ketchup, mustard, salt and pepper and mix well. Allow to cool before serving

Variations

For a less sweet version, replace the ketchup with some onions and chopped tomatoes sweated until soft and blitzed with the rest of the ingredients.

For a spicy version, try adding chilli flakes or Tabasco, and for a smoky version, add a teaspoon of smoked paprika.

In China, they add hoisin sauce to their barbecue sauce. Marcus Wareing adds garlic and lemon juice to his version whereas Adam Gray uses apple as the base for his.

Serving suggestions

Use barbecue sauce as a marinade for meat – beef, pork and chicken all work well. Try Josh Eggleton’s Barbecued sticky ribs or Marcus Wareing’s Barbecued pork chop.

Alternatively, use it like ketchup for burgers, chips or steak.
