Thick and Sweet Barbecue Sauce

Thick and Sweet Barbecue Sauce
Have you ever purchased barbecue sauce with big plans for a fine feast, and then discovered that the sauce wasn't what you expected? Well, no more surprises. We've tested lots of sauces, picked best, and named them to suit their taste. Barbecue sauces are both savored as condiments at the table and used to add flavor and keep the meat moist as it cooks. Baste with the thicker, sweet sauce only during the last few minutes of grilling because the sweet ingredients (including ketchup) burn easily and can cause the fire to flare if they drip on the coals.


1/2     - cup chopped onion
1        - glove garlic
1/4     - cup vegetable oil
1        - (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/4     - cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2  - teaspoons grated lemon juice
1/4     - cup lemon juice
2        - tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2        - tablespoons prepared mustard
1        - tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


Step 1
- Cook onion and garlic in oil in a skillet over medium heat, stirring constantly, until tender. Add tomato sauce and remaining ingredients. Reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, 20 minutes, stirring often.

Step 2
- Divide sauce into separate containers for basting and serving at the table. (Basting brushes used on raw food should not be dipped in table sauce.) Use as a basting sauce during last 10 minutes of cooking time for burgers, chicken or ribs. Refrigerate any leftover table sauce, and discard any remaining basting sauce.
