Homemade barbecue sauce

In the heat, you don’t really want to cook, so quick and convenient food is used, and to it - sauces, sauces, sauces ... I propose to turn a boring store-bought ketchup into a plot-rich barbecue sauce. The sauce is thick, rich, sweet and sour, very harmonious. It is ideal for homemade hamburgers, shawarma and cutlets, it is very tasty with fried meat and chicken, for cereals, and just for bread... The idea was peeped from Gordon Ramsay, but the recipe was slightly adapted to our taste.

Ingredients for 4 servings

Ketchup 400 g
Onion 1 pc.
Garlic (large) 3 cloves
Honey 1 tbsp. l.
Vegetable oil 2 tbsp. l.
Sweet paprika 1 tsp
Vinegar (apple) 2 tbsp. l.
Hot red pepper 1/4 tsp
Sauce (Wocestershire) 1 tbsp. l.
Sugar 1 tbsp. l.

Cooking process
To begin with, pour vegetable oil into a frying pan, put on a small fire and put finely chopped onion and garlic into it. On a small fire, stirring constantly, we warm-simmer our vegetables to a transparent semi-soft state, do not blush. The onion should become a translucent golden color, and the garlic will simply be lost.

Add honey and sugar to the pan and, continuing to stir, caramelize the onion. At first it seems that everything is very liquid, but soon the mass will become amber in color and viscous. This is the signal to add the rest of the ingredients.

Add paprika and red pepper. You can optionally add up to 1 tsp. liquid smoke. This will give a slightly smoky flavor. Gordon Ramsay uses smoked paprika, which is what you want.

Add Wochestershire sauce and apple cider vinegar. The Wochestershire sauce can be replaced with a mixture of soy sauce and rice vinegar, or fish sauce with balsamic vinegar, or not at all, and increase the amount of apple cider vinegar. Put the ketchup in there. Stir continuously, warming over low heat, until the ingredients are completely mixed.

Bon Appetit!
