Anyone else a BBQ lover? I love it in lots of forms. On a good burger, over chicken or pork and shredded for a sandwich, on some homemade mack and cheese, etc. I don't always make homemade BBQ sauce (Stubb's Origninal or Spicy is my favorite bottled kind), but this recipe is one of my favorites. It's really rich and thick with tomato flavor and has the perfect spice blend, and you can whip it together in a matter of minutes. My friend, Sara, gave it to me several years ago - and it's one we've enjoyed over and over. Sometimes we just put the sauce over some pork ribs and serve them some kind of potato and other times I shred the meat for a pulled pork sandwich, one of our favorites!
This week my in-laws have been staying with us and we've been making lots of gluten-free food. This BBQ sauce fits the bill - and we all enjoyed it. I did serve it with French Bread Rolls for those that want. We also served it with dutch oven style potatoes (make sure you try those) and a green salad.
Hope you'll enjoy!
We love this over pork especially, but it is also good on chicken or beef.
1 cup apple cider vinegar (I use Bragg’s brand)
2 cloves garlic, minced
¼ cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 cup ketchup
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons dry mustard
2-4 tablespoons dried minced onion (or use ½-1 medium size fresh yellow onion, diced)
1 large can or 2 small cans of tomato paste
½ teaspoon black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a medium size mixing bowl and whisk to combine until smooth. Pour over pork roast and cook in crock pot on low for 6-8 hours or until it’s reached 170 degrees F, shred with two forks and serve on rolls or as is. You can also pour the BBQ sauce over any other pork cut (or chicken or beef) and cook as desired.
