Classic Barbecue Sauce

I love experimenting with barbecue sauce recipes. It’s one of the easiest things to make, your house smells amazing, and you have this delicious condiment in the fridge to jazz up all sorts of lunches and dinners. This is the sauce I make as soon as the season for grilling and smoking arrives – the secret is the beef broth – it adds such an interesting and tasty flavor.

This is my classic version, the one I return to year in and year out. My version makes a lot because I love having extra mason jars full of it in the fridge. I use it to make my barbecue chicken, mix it in with pulled pork and serve it with brisket. Happy cooking!
  • 4 cups Ketchup
  • 1 1/2 cups Beef Broth
  • 1 cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 10 tbsp Light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp Ground mustard
  • 2 tbsp Garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp Onion powder
  • 1 tbsp Paprika
  1. Add all ingredients to a large saucepan / small stockpot.
  2. Whisk throughly to combine.
  3. Heat over low heat, once the sauce begins to bubble, reduce to low, stir and simmer for at least 20 minutes or as long as 1 hour. The longer the sauce simmers the more the flavors meld and deepen.
