BBQ Sauce

I have always wanted to make my own barbeque sauce but it was just easier to pick up a bottle at the store. I found this recipe by Paula Deen, one of my favorite chefs to watch because of her amazing personality, for a barbeque chicken but I think it can work for any meat you like.

  • 3/4 cup finely diced onion

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 2 tablespoons oil

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1/2 cup ketchup

  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard

  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar *

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1/4 cup water

  • Dash Worcestershire sauce

In a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, saute the onion and garlic in vegetable oil until soft. Add salt and pepper. Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and simmer 10 minutes.

* Make sure the apple cider vinegar is gluten-free. To be sure, it is sold at speciality stores that state "Gluten-Free" on the label.
