Gourmet Barbecue Sauce Recipes

A lot of Gourmet barbecue sauce recipes continue to use ketchup and I think that’s cheating a little. Surely a gourmet barbecue sauce should start from the basic ingredients?

If you agree, I hope the recipe below makes you happy.

What I've tried to do is combine some of the traditional ingredients for a barbecue sauce with some fresh ones so that the final result is a much more fresh and natural tasting sauce.

Because it has fresh ingredients chopped this doesn't make a smooth sauce and again for this particular recipe I think that is the right consistency but if you do want a smooth sauce than once everything has cooked through by all means give it a blitz in your food processor.

Yield:- 2 cups or 480ml

Preparation Time:- 10 mins
Cooking Time:- 45 mins

Total Time:- 55 mins


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, coarsely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 inch cube fresh ginger crushed
  • 1 red chili finely chopped and deseeded
  • 1 440ml can of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 2 tablespoons of brown muscovado sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt


In a saucepan, fry the garlic and onion gently in the vegetable oil for 3 or 4 minutes for the onion to soften and turn translucent. Then add the ginger and chili and continue to cook until you smell the fragrance (no more than a minute).

Now throw in the rest of the ingredients and stir to mix everything together.

Reduce heat to low and simmer for 40 – 45 minutes until the sauce has reduced and thickened to the consistency that you prefer.

Take a small glass of Shiraz while cooking and now you can truly call yourself a Gourmet!
