BBQ sauce

    40 min

    My mother-in-law gave me this BBQ sauce recipe over twenty four years ago. I use it frequently and someone always asks for it. A mixture of tangy ingredients, onion and brown sugar creates a tasty sauce! This will keep in the fridge for several weeks.

    1. In a medium saucepan, mix lemon juice, onion, vinegar, water, brown sugar, mustard, ground black pepper, salt, cayenne pepper and vegetable oil. Bring to the boil, then simmer uncovered 20 minutes.
    2. Stir ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke flavouring into the mixture. Return to the boil, then remove from heat. Refrigerate until ready for use.


    Liquid smoke flavouring is available to order online and in some specialty shops. If unavailable, the BBQ sauce can be made without it with good results.
