Recipe: Homemade BBQ Sauce

Indoor BBQ is something we have to do regularly here in Alaska. We've done this BBQ sauce for the past 2 years and love it. It's so simple and tastes so much better than what you buy in a bottle. There is also so much you can do with this to change the flavor, leave out the hot sauce and add honey, etc. Very yummy!

What you need:

1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 Worchestershire sauce
2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
2 dashes hot pepper sauce
2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp mustard powder
1/2 tsp salt

Combine all of these into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before brushing onto your favorite meat.

We used chicken for this meal, but this would be good with pork, brisket, or any other meat you choose.

We also had red potatoes pan fried in olive oil, fresh garlic and rosemary. We cubed about 5 medium sized red potatoes, heated up olive oil in a pan, added fresh pressed garlic, then the potatoes and rosemary.

While the potatoes were cooking, we set the broiler to high, and put 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut in half in with just a touch of salt and pepper.

Cook these on each side until the pink is gone, then start brushing on the BBQ sauce, adding more and turning every few minutes. Once the chicken is just about done, turn the broiler to low and allow the BBQ sauce to caramelize before turning and allow the other side to do the same.

With this we had an Argentinian Malbec and it went perfect with the spice of the BBQ sauce!

That's it! Enjoy :)
