Who doesn't love BBQ sauce? It goes with everything that says "Summer!" And with summer peeking through, I thought I'd share this! I also used this delicious sauce to make my BBQ roast beef for sandwiches today :)

How to Make Mama's Delicious BBQ Sauce


  1. Prepare onions, and garlic, be sure that they are finely minced. I sometimes puree them with a bit of the sauce to ensure they are well minced.
  2. In a medium saucepan, add all ingredients, mix well. Simmer over low heat for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Allow to cool.

    Use immediately on your favorite BBQ.
    May store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
