Barbecue Sauce Makes Grilled Meat Delicious


This great-tasting homemade barbecue sauce can be used to boost the flavor of meats

This is the best barbecue sauce recipe I have come across. It's simple and delicious. I've used it for years as a stand-by, when I'm out of bottled sauce.

If you've ever wondered how to make barbecue sauce, use this recipe for perfect results every time.

Make this homemade barbecue sauce and brush it on meat to improve flavor. Simply brush over meat and pop into the oven.

I like to use this over left-over roast beef. It keeps the meat tender and gives it such a good flavor.

1/2 cup chopped onion in

1 tbsp. butter

1 cup water

1/4 vinegar

1/4 brown sugar

Brushing on Barbecue Sauce


Barbecue Sauce Serving Suggestions

  • Chicken or Turkey, Steak or Spareribs--Brush bbc sauce over cooked chicken, turkey, steak or spareribs and roast in oven or cook the meat on a barbecue for the last 1/2-1 hour of cooking time.
  • Roast Beef or Meatballs--This easy bbc sauce can be used when you want to dress up leftovers, such as roast beef slices, leftover pork roast, meatloaf or meatballs. Simply brush on top of leftover meat and place uncovered in the oven to heat.
  • Mushroom and Onions--If you love mushrooms and onions, chop these and lay out in a foil-covered pan. Brush with sauce and broil in oven until browned. Or wrap in foil and place on the barbecueue. Why purchase sauce when you can make a homemade barbecue sauce that is just as good.

Making barbecue sauce takes only minutes and you will be rewarded with that hard-to-beat mouthwatering flavor that makes meat dishes so special.

      I like the sauce recipe, but if you're interested, I will email you mine (although I do sell it, out of competitive juices, I'll do it for free!)
