I make this in huge batches and made the mistake giving out jars of it to friends. Now I can't keep enough of it around.

Directions

  1. Whisk the ketchup, water, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, white wine vinegar, Dijon mustard, brown sugar, salt, hot pepper sauce, granulated garlic, and black pepper together in a small heavy-bottomed saucepan and place over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and continue cooking at a simmer, stirring together, another 10 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool completely. Pour into a glass jar and store uncovered in the refrigerator for 8 hours or overnight. This allows the flavors to blend and reduce any sharpness from the vinegar.
  2. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Very quick to prepare and a tasty sauce. I also whipped this together when I was out of barbecue sauce (and Tabasco), so added 1/2 of a finely diced chipotle pepper (drained off the adobo sauce), and used a sugar-free ketchup, because husband needs to cut down sugar. Chipotle added a nice underlying smokiness to the taste, I would recommend it. Simmered it for about 35-40 minutes, because I needed it that night. It was quite good even the same day, but was definitely a better sauce the next day, worth the wait. It was a hit, and will make it again. Thank you for adding it.

Delicious. Tangy and sweet and very zippy! I reduced the Tabasco by half so there would be a higher chance that my kids would eat it. I made it the night before, and then used it on beef ribs in the crock pot. Wonderful flavor! The ribs are gone, but I've been eating the leftover sauce on rice all week. I'll make this again any time I need a bbq sauce and have time to let it sit all night.
