American Style Barbecue Sauce Recipe

I have been to the states 4 times now and one of my favourite dishes over there is american style barbecue ribs or barbecue beef. One of my friends over there does a great beef cooked in a delicious sauce. I asked for the recipe and have to admit that one of the ingredients she used, I cannot find here in australia. I have tried to adapt it without this ingredient and hopefully any american citizens reading this will forgive me if it isn't the same as the recipe you use. That ingredient is called liquid smoke and the one she used was a hickory flavoured one. I will keep searching for it but until then I am sure you will love this sauce anyway.


3 teaspoons hickory flavoured liquid smoke (if available)
1 cup tomato sauce (ketchup)
6 tablespoons worcestershire sauce
4 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 tablespoon french mustard
3 tablespoons finely minced white onion
1/2 teaspoon tabasco sauce
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 teaspoon salt


Put all ingredients into a large saucepan and mix together well.
Place over a very low heat and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Store in airtight container in the refigerator
It will keep well for several months in there.
This can be used as a sauce to pour over meats or as a marinade to brush on meat before cooking.
