Sugar-Free DIY Barbecue Sauce
Homemade barbecue sauce is the best! This recipe is simple to make once you assemble all of the ingredients. Enjoy it on BBQ, or as a dipping sauce.
6 ounce can tomato paste
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
3 tablespoons white wine vinegar
1/2 cup water (or more if too thick)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon adobo sauce (chipotle pepper optional)
1/4 small yellow onion, grated
1 large garlic clove, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
Combine all of the ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat.
Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat and let simmer on low, uncovered, for about an hour.
Ingredient Variations and Substitutions
If you’d like your sauce on the smokier side, increase the chili powder by 1/2 teaspoon increments.
If you’d like your sauce on the spicier side, increase the adobo sauce by 1/2 teaspoon increments.
Alternatively, add 1/4 (or more) of a chipotle pepper.
Make sure to stir frequently, about once every 10 to 15 minutes, while the BBQ sauce is cooking. This will help better incorporate the flavors and ensure that the sauce is evenly cooked throughout.
Let the sauce cool before transferring to a storage container. A mason jar is a good option. Whatever you use, make sure it’s airtight. You can store your sauce in the refrigerator for up to a week.
