Posted a recipe about oven ribs earlier BUT the sauce recipe included in it is soooo good, it deserves it's own thread

As with most recipes, it's even better the next day 馃榿

This is the way I made it. Makes two cups (enough for 5 lb ribs so judge accordingly):

Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tbsp (28 g) butter
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) ketchup
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) honey (can use apple jelly or maple syrup instead)
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) molasses
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp (15 ml) Worcestershire sauce
  • 3/4 tsp sambal oelek (or tabasco as desired ==>which is not one of my fav's).
1)Saute the 3 powders (spices) in the butter for 2 min or less (make sure the butter doesn't burn)
2)Add the rest, bring to a boil then simmer for 5 min or a bit longer--so it starts to thicken

That's it. SWMBO doesn't care for spice but she liked this. It is a bit spicy because of the chili powder and sambal oelek BUT for me, I always make a recipe the first time as written then adjust if needed.

The honey and s/oelek were my changes (bracketed is original).

No "Sauce" prefix is available for reference purposes.

For me, it's in the same class as sriracha. BUT s/oelek does not have garlic whereas sriracha does so I use one or t'other as the recipe/ingredients dictate.

No whole garlic? I use s/o.
Has garlic? Then sriracha.

Basically thai (birds eye for example) peppers, rice vinegar and salt.

Here's a homemade version (I haven't tried but 100% trust this webmaster's recipes)

Thai chili paste--different flavour profile. Here are some subs if you want store bought:

That is the brand Sambal Oelek I've been able to get here. Hong Kong Market I think, they have most everything else.
