This is not barbecue sauce.
I might retire from the attempt to create the perfect barbecue sauce, especially since I am yet to create something that can even be classified such.
Hot and Smokey Sauce
1/2 an onion, finely chopped
1cm ginger root, peeled and grated
2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tsp smoked paprika
2 tsps english mustard powder
2 tbsp honey
50ml worcester sauce (check it's gluten free)
100ml tomato ketchup (check it's gluten free, Sainsbury's recently changed their recipe.)
- In a little oil, gently fry the onions, ginger and garlic until soft.
- Add the smoked paprika and fry for a further minute.
- Add the mustard powder, honey, worcester sauce, tomato ketchup, and water, stir well to combine. Bring to the boil.
- Simmer for about 5 minutes, then serve.
I served this sauce with chicken, and a potato and sweet potato mash. It might not be barbecue sauce, but it's definitely worth a try!
