I stay far, far away from supermarket sauces. I only venture to the familiar ones, such as Thai hot sauce. As usual, I do what can be done at home.
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/4 cup water
- 2-3 tablespoons of vinegar
- 1-2 tablespoons sugar (or to taste)
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon cayenne or hot pepper
Preparation time: less than 60 minutes
HOW TO PREPARE RECIPE St. Louis barbecue sauce:
Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and put on low heat.
Keep it on the fire for about 10 minutes or until all the water has evaporated and a sauce has formed.
Remove from the heat, allow to cool and place in a jar or container.
Store in the refrigerator.
It's even better the next day.
