Barbecue Dipping Sauce, Easy Sweet and Delicious

Spread the love

So a Barbecue Dipping Sauce is something that I think should be at every BBQ don’t you? Especially when it can be made from simply mixing a couple of ingredients together. Now of course we can cook the sauce down for a deeper flavour too! I Will add my non cook and my cook down recipes here. You may now have noticed I like to have a few dipping sauces available in my collection. From apples to curry the list of sauces is endless and we will find them all overtime and add them to the site.

Barbecue sauce (also abbreviated as BBQ sauce) is used as a flavouring sauce, a marinade, basting, condiment, or topping for meat cooked in the barbecue cooking style, including pork or beef ribs and chicken. Making your own barbecue sauce is simple and quick, but results in a rich, sweet and smoky flavour which is so much better than the stuff from a bottle. Barbecue sauce can be used both as an ingredient and condiment.

The ingredients vary widely even within individual countries, but most include some variation on vinegar, tomato paste as a base, as well as liquid smoke, onion powder, spices such as mustard and black pepper, and sweeteners such as sugar or molasses.

The No Cook Barbecue Dipping Sauce

So the sun is out, the BBQ is on and we need a Barbecue Dipping Sauce. To make a no cook sauce it really is as easy as mix some well know items together and give a good whisk. Super simple to make while your wings are cooking up. Maybe even the perfect dip for your pizza. Even though we don’t cook the sauce down you can still change up the taste. Just by adding a few other items to taste can change up the whole sauce. I have always found part of the fun of making dipping sauces is you can get experimental right!

For the most simple throw together BBQ sauce: Mix together, 1 cup ketchup. 1/4 cup molasses (or brown sugar, or honey). 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce. 1/4 cup cider vinegar. 1 tbsp soy sauce (optional), 1 tbsp Franks Red Hot (optional)
