10-minute Homemade Barbecue Sauce Recipe

When it comes to barbecue sauce, homemade is the only way to go. When I was much younger, I would spend hours slowly preparing and cooking down my barbecue sauce until it reached perfection. These days? I have a speedy, easy, 10-minute recipe that no one would believe just how easy it is to make.

This is the type of barbecue sauce to have on ribs and burgers or to dunk potato wedges in. It’s thick, it’s spicy, and it’s tangy. Everything you want in a homemade BBQ sauce!

This recipe first came about after forgetting to prepare my usual slow-cooked barbecue sauce for some pork ribs I had cooking away in the oven. Needing a quick, easy, but flavourful homemade barbecue sauce (and unwilling to go the store-bought route!) this beautifully rich concoction was ready in minutes. Definitely a game-changer!

Ever since I first made it, it’s become a regularly featured guest in our kitchen. It’s simply an easy way to jazz up bacon-wrapped chicken breast, or smother across the aforementioned spare ribs!

Sauce aside, you may have noticed that my recipes seem to be few and far between these days. Ever since having a mild case of COVID back in March, I am finding myself suffering from post-viral fatigue. I still cook almost every day, but setting up my little photo studio, recording and writing the recipes, editing the photos – it’s extremely taxing. I find myself regularly fatigued and exhausted after cooking, which means – no news recipes ready to share.

Hopefully, as time goes on my energy levels will return to normal. I do suspect, come winter and the time for even more comfort food, the recipes will begin flowing again.

After all, autumn and winter and the comfiest, and cosiest seasons!
