Deep Southern Hot Barbecue Sauce

One of my favorite things about the South is its great barbecues. So here's a bit of authentic barbecue that you can whip up right in your own kitchen. (Maybe not exactly like at Kilgore, Texas's Country Tavern, but for homemade - it sure is easy.)

What You'll Need

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup minced onion
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 cup chicken broth or bouillon
  • 1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1 can (6 ounces) tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons parsley flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

What to Do

  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic; sauté for 4 minutes or until golden.

  2. Remove from heat, then add the remaining ingredients. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

              Store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
              Makes about 2-1/4 cups.


Use as a basting sauce for chicken, pork, fish, or beef.
