This hot barbecue sauce works really well on chicken and pork ribs. The horseradish gives this a good heat that doesn't burn (much).


  • 1 cup/240 mL melted butter
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup/120 mL ketchup
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup/60 mL prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons/10 mL Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL hot sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon/1.25 mL black pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.
  2. Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow the sauce to simmer for 10-15 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature before using. Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days after preparation.
