Homemade BBQ Sauce

Over the weekend I made a really easy and great tasting, BBQ sauce. This was enough to cover the pork roast and a little leftover. I’ll make up a double batch and put it in some jars to use on other things.


1 (15 oz.) can tomato sauce
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
1/3 cup honey or agave nectar
1/4 cup tomato paste
1/4 cup molasses
3 Tbsp. Worcestershire
2 tsp. liquid smoke
1 tsp. smoked paprika (I used regular paprika and it was just fine.)
1 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. freshly-ground black pepper
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. salt


Whisk all ingredients together in a medium saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer (uncovered) for 20 minutes, or until the sauce has slightly thickened.

Use the sauce immediately, or refrigerate in a sealed container for up to 1 week.
