This hot and spicy barbecue sauce is a simple combination of ingredients you probably have in your pantry. It's nicely sweetened with molasses, and the hot sauce gives it some pleasant heat.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons hot sauce (such as Texas Pete's or Frank's)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly.

  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until thickened and slightly reduced -- about 5 to 10 minutes. Stir occasionally.

Note: To lessen the mess as the sauce cooks, I recommend a splatter shield or deep saucepan for this recipe.
