Guest Post – Rustic Barbecue Sauce

It must be the weekend because I’ve got another great recipe from my husband, One Hungry Dude. Hope you enjoy this one and that all the mommies are having a wonderful Mother’s Day. I was definitely spoiled for my first go round!

I know this is the time of year when you're opening up the barbecue, and ascending to your rightful spot as King or Queen of the Grill. If you'll be treating the family to a wonderful grilled meal in the coming week, consider adding this flavourful, mildly spicy and simple to assemble barbecue sauce into the plans. It goes well with chicken, pork, or even as a dip for some appetizers.

bbq sauce 2
• 1 Tomato, diced
• 1/2 Jalapeno, finely diced
• 1/2 Cup Ketchup
• 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
• 2 Tbsp Honey
• 1 Tsp Lemon Juice
• A few splashes of hot sauce
• A few splashes of Worcestershire Sauce
• Salt and Pepper, to taste
• 1/2 Cup Vegetable Broth

On the stove top, place all the ingredients into a small pot, except the vegetable broth. Cover the pot, and heat over medium. When the mixture begins to bubble, reduce the heat by half, and cook for another five minutes. Add the vegetable broth, and cook for another 15 to 20 minutes, until the the tomato begins to almost completely break down and the sauce thickens. Take off heat, and let cool.

The sauce is thick enough when it coats a spoon. You can break the chunks down further with a spoon, but I prefer to leave them as is. The small chunks actually add a little flavour burst to the sauce.

This recipe produces one cup of sauce.
