I’m not a fan of store bought BBQ sauces. Making these yourself is so easy that there seems absolutely no point in buying a store bought product. Plus you have the added advantage of being able to tweek your own sauce to suit your taste buds – hotter, sharper, sweeter – it’s in your hands.
Richard Till shares his recipe for BBQ sauce in the Sunday Star Times today.
Here’s the recipe:
- half a cup of salad oil (he suggests not using your finest olive oil but I think making recipes with only the best ingredients is always well advised)
- 4 cloves finely minced garlic
- handful finely minced rosemary
- 2T mustard powder
- 2T sweet paprika (personally I’d go easy on this ingredient as I find it quite overpowering if you miscalculate the measure)
- 1T curry powder
- 4T sesame oil (leave it out if you don’t have any)
- 1T soy
- 1/4 cup cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup red wine
- 1/2 cup store bought BBQ sauce (don’t understand this bit and would be tempted to leave this out)
Combine all of these ingredients and brush on anything you intend to BBQ – meat, vegetables, fish – whatever!
