Zesty BBQ Sauce

I remember back to my childhood when my mom used to make homemade BBQ sauce loaded with ketchup, Worchestershire sauce, onions and some other secret ingredients. Craving a good BBQ sauce to use myself I turned to my trusty Betty Crocker Cookbook. It is great...better than anything you can buy in a jar or bottle! Plus, you can make as much or little as you want when you make it from scratch so no half full bottles of the other stuff just sitting around in your fridge.

Yields: 1 cup of sauce


1/2 cup ketchup
3 Tbsp white vinegar
2 Tbsp chopped onion
1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp ground mustard
1 clove garlic, finely chopped


Heat all ingredients to boiling in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

****Other recipes that use this sauce:

  • Grilled BBQ Chicken
  • BBQ Chicken Sandwiches (crockpot)
  • Chicken Wings
