Sure you can buy barbecue sauce in a bottle, but where is the fun in that?
When it is this easy to make, why not make your own and impress your guests, which also gives you a chance to personalise the recipe to suits your tastes.
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 onion, finely chopped
- 400g can chopped tomatoes
- 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 85g brown sugar
- 3 tbsp malt vinegar
- 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tbsp tomato purée
- Heat oil in a saucepan and add the onion. Cook over a gentle heat 4-5 mins, until softened. Add remaining ingredients, season and mix. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 mins, until thickened. For a smooth sauce, simply whizz the mixture in a food processor or with a hand blender for a few seconds.
