The Easy Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Top Secret BBQ Sauce Recipe

Today you've no time and need an easy barbecue sauce recipe right?

Don’t panic, you can have this quick bbq sauce recipe cracked off in less time than it takes your family to say “let’s have a barbecue!”

Top of the ingredients list is a tomato based pasta sauce and I've also included passata as a good alternative. Sometimes passata is used as an alternative description for tomato paste but technically passata is raw tomatoes passed through a sieve (hence the name passata which when translated from Italian means "passed"). Tomato paste is further processed in that it is concentrated and therefore too viscous for this recipe.

I hope that my description therefore avoids confusion and you can easily understand the consistency of sauce that we're looking for.

The beauty of this sauce is that you can make it in minutes and it uses ingredients that you're almost certain to have in your home. It’s so easy that all you have to do is mix and stir, warm it up and slap it on your burger .

Yield:- 3½ cups or 825ml

Preparation Time:- 5 minutes
Cooking Time:- n/a

Total Time:- 5 minutes


  • 2 400ml or 14oz cans / jars of tomato-based pasta sauce (passata)

    1 1/2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper


OK so throw it together and stir.....Sorted! You don't even need to warm it up, barbecue sauce in no time at all. Now you can sit back, relax and have a beer or a glass of wine while food is one the grill.....Cheers!
