Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe

by allysonrosenbloom

BBQ sauce is so easy to make, once I started exploring recipes, I can’t believe I ever bought it in a grocery store.  It tastes so good with just about anything you put in it.

You start with a tomato base.  
Try about four tomatoes to start, but you could always add more later to get the flavor and consistency you want.

 I like to focus on clean eating, with as few processed foods as possible.  You could use ketchup, but it’s much better without it.
Along with the tomatoes, here are some other ingredients you might want to use:

  • half of a chopped onion
  • half of an organic bell pepper, green or red
  • a couple jalapeno or serrano peppers
  • 3 teaspoons ground mustard seed
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground celery seed
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • lemon juice, to taste
  • tablespoon of butter

Put the tomatoes alone in your Vitamix or blender.  When they are fully liquefied, add all the other ingredients slowly.

Pour Vitamix contents into a sauce pan and bring to a boil.  Then, lower the heat and simmer for twenty minutes.

And that’s it.  Could it be any simpler for something so delicious?
