READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

They always say less is best, and this certainly stands true for this easy BBQ sauce recipe, it's very easy to make, and so good! I have doubled the original recipe, but you may cut the recipe down to half if desired. You can brush this sauce on while cooking, or marinate your meat in it, this is also fantastic for chicken too! This sauce is even better prepared a day ahead. If you like extra heat, just saute some dried chili flakes in with the onion and garlic.

Great barbecue sauce and so easy to make. My sauce wasnt getting thick after 30 minutes so I simmered it another 15 minutes and it was perfect. Placed in the refrigerator until time to use it and the flavors are wonderful! Just enough sweet and tangy flavor with a bit of zip, perfect for us. I used minced garlic from a jar and my onion wasnt as fine as it could have been but we liked the bit of chunkiness on our pork chops. Kitten thank you, I am never disappointed with your recipes! Thank you hon, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!!
