All-Purpose Tangy and Sweet BBQ Sauce

This makes a great dipping sauce, marinade, or basting sauce for ribs, chicken, brisket, or anything else you may want to grill, smoke, or roast. See, I wasn't kidding when I called it "all-purpose!"

  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 cup cider vinegar
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon yellow mustard

Melt butter in 2-quart saucepan over medium heat. Saute onions with a pinch of salt until they have softened and browned slightly. Add garlic and saute for another 30 seconds, until the garlic becomes fragrant. Add remaining ingredients and simmer, stirring constantly, until sauce boils with large bubbles and has started to thicken. If using as a dipping sauce, let cool slightly and serve warm. For marinades or basting, cool to room temperature before using.
