BBQ Sauce I Unverified!

In Italy I was hard pressed to create a traditional American BBQ sauce from available ingredients. This series attempts to offer several candidates for a general purpose sauce. This sauce was originally intended for a spare rib base. It may scope beyond this.


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 cup vinegar
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder


In a pot, melt butter and cook onion until tender. Mix in remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes before allowing to cool. Apply to meat during last 15 minutes of cooking.
