A recipe my mom uses. Tasted great as the sauce on pizzas, too!

Recipe Ingredients for Homemade Barbecue Sauce

2 tbs vegetable oil
1/2 cup onion, chopped
2 tsp garlic, minced
1/2 cup cider vinegar
8 oz tomato sauce
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tbs dry mustard
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp salt
1 tsp hot sauce
1/4 tsp black pepper

Recipe Directions for Homemade Barbecue Sauce

  1. Heat a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat. Add oil to pan and once it's hot, add onion and garlic. Cook, stirring often, until softened; usually 3-4 minutes. Add vinegar and cook for 2 additional minutes. Add remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 20 minutes or until sauce is thick enough to coat the back of the spoon. Remove from heat and let cool completely.

  2. Refrigerate until ready to use. Keeps for up to 2 weeks in the fridge. Can also be frozen. I recommend putting the sauce in a glass jar.
