BBQ Sauce

​This is a Kansas City BBQ sauce, which most people will recognize as the quintessential style of sweet, tangy BBQ sauce. The use of tomatoes, as opposed to ketchup, as a base gives it a less processed, less sweet, more vinegary flavour.

This makes a lot; consider halving the recipe.

  • 1 (15-ounce) can crushed tomatoes 
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire
  • 2 teaspoons liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly-ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • optional: a few pinches of cayenne for extra heat, if desired
  1. Combine ingredients. Whisk all ingredients together in a medium saucepan.
  2. Simmer. Cook over medium-high heat until the sauce reaches a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer (uncovered) for 10-15 minutes, or until the sauce has slightly thickened.
  3. Serve. Use the sauce immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
