Everyone needs a ‘Go-To’ barbecue sauce to go along with their brisket, pulled pork and chicken. Finding your ideal sauce can be a long road of trial and error but this sauce is hands down one of the best sauce recipes I’ve tried. It’s really quick to make and can add another layer of flavour to any meal.
225g of Salted Butter
1/2 a large White Onion, finely chopped
120ml Apple Cider Vinegar
55g Light Brown Sugar
1tsp Sea Salt
1tsp Ground Black Pepper
1tsp Hot Chilli Powder (1/2tsp for mild or 11/2tsp for hot)
1tsp Garlic Powder
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Start by melting the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Butter will burn if you heat it up too much so it is better to melt it slowly. Add all of the chopped onion and saute them until translucent. At this point simply add all the other ingredients and give it a good mix until combined. Simmer the sauce over a medium heat until it has thickened.
For an extra layer of flavour you can pour the sauce into a large baking tin and place it on the barbecue over an indirect heat. Add some fruit wood to the coals and smoke the sauce for 10-15 minutes. This will add a mild smokey taste to the sauce.
The sauce will keep for up to 2 weeks in the fridge but from past experience it won’t last that long.
