Recipe By Savory Spice Test Kitchen

We found this quick and easy BBQ sauce equally delicious as a potato chip or french fry dip as it is a slathering sauce for your favorite protein.

Serving Suggestions

Use as a basting, finishing or dipping sauce with your favorite grilled veggies, chicken, brisket or ribs.

Recipe Notes

This is a basic BBQ sauce recipe than can be made using your favorite BBQ rub. For a tangier, slightly less sweet version, increase ketchup by 1/3 cup, use only 1/3 cup molasses, and substitute white vinegar for apple cider vinegar and yellow mustard for Dijon mustard.


1/2 medium onion, roughly chopped

1/4 cup water

1 cup ketchup

2/3 cup molasses

2 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar

2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

1 to 2 tsp. your favorite hot sauce (optional)

Place onion and water in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. In a medium saucepan, whisk the pureed onion with remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil and reduce to a low simmer. Simmer, uncovered, until sauce thickens, about 20 to 30 min. Cool sauce to room temperature before serving. Stored in a sealed container in the refrigerator and use within a week.
