You know how that saying goes.If you got it, flaunt it? Well I got it. Yup.sure.do! I’ve had it for a while. Kept it a secret… secured and tucked safely in my back pocket. Today is the day I get to flaunt it.My Homemade barbecue sauce.But not just any barbecue sauce. Here, let me explain. From the very moment my lips tasted Sweet Baby Ray’s BBQ sauce, I was hooked. I love the consistency and sweet flavor. I’ve had it on pizza, french fries, wings, burgers you name it. It was the moment I read the label and saw the ingredients that I began my quest. A mission to make my own that stands up to this huge name brand minus the high fructose corn syrup. I think know I’ve done it. It’s sweet… tangy… and perfectly seasoned.
If I had to label it… It would be Sweet Laurie Loo’s… what? Too similar??
Pantry ingredients. What could be better? I love making food from what I find in my pantry or fridge. It makes me feel chef-y. It’s like I’m on Chopped or something. Pulling off a dinner with only having onion, lemon, vegetable stock and chicken thighs… is what I live for!
Stir until the sugar is dissolve and the seasonings mixed throughout.
