Natural, organic and from scratch are all words that were not a part of my vocabulary until I became a mom. That is just being honest. I grew up in a really small town where dining options were really limited so over the last three years, I’ve taught myself quite a bit in the kitchen.
I’ve grown to love when the fall weather arrives because of all the yummy crockpot recipes out there. I had a big pork shoulder cooking on low when a show on The Food Network mentioned the idea of homemade barbeque sauce. Small town me had never even thought about making my own barbeque sauce at home!
I headed straight to google to find an easy recipe when I came across a “no cook” recipe. Even better! It is literally the EASIEST thing to make, ever. You can NOT mess this up!!! And to top it off, it is delicious. I brought a big batch to a house party and it was a hit!
1 ½ cups brown sugar
½ cup red wine vinegar
1 ¼ cups ketchup
½ cup water (or substitute with some juices from cooked meat)
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 ½ teaspoons ground mustard
2 teaspoons paprika
1 ½ teaspoons paprika
1 ½ teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
Throw everything in a bowl and MIX! I love to use this recipe alongside of a large pork shoulder cooked to *falling apart* perfection in the crockpot!
