A pretty good clone recipe from Arby's. Adapted from a Todd Wilbur recipe. From Top Secret Recipes www.TopSecretRecipes.com.
- 1 cup ketchup
- 2 teaspoons water
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
- Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan and cook over medium het, stirring constantly, until the sauce begins to boil, around 8 to 10 minutes.
- Remove from heat, cover and let stand until cool.
- Store in a clean, sterile jar with a cover.
- Keeps in the fridge up to 1 month.
I made this last night, and thought it made for a passing ketchup-based BBQ sauce, but it wasn't quite Arby's sauce. I altered it and it's closer now. Not quite there, but it passes muster. I added a half-cup of Apple-Cider vinegar (I would imagine malt vinegar might work as well) and used a full teaspoon of hot sauce (I used Louisiana Hot Sauce). This took out some of the ketchup flavor and made it closer to the Arby's Sauce goodness. It has a tad more kick, but not so much that it didn't seem like a close facsimile...
Like SugarKitty noted, this is the only recipe around the web, so I gave it a try and found it was pretty good. I do think it needed a few modifications, but that was to my own personal taste, to give it more of a zing. Thanks DiB's.
This went very nice with a veggie burger I cooked up. It was all I needed! Thanks!
