This is a sauce that my mom came up with one day when I was out at my in laws for a cook out and they forgot to get any BBQ sauce. So I called good old mom for a recipe for some great sauce. and this is what she came up with. Give it a try and let me know what ya’ll think.


Mom’s BBQ Sauce:

3 large sweet onions, chopped
1 tablespoon  olive oil
3 bottles chili sauce

2/3 cup  lemon juice
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
about 1/2 bottle of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tbsp. mustard
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed

In a skillet, sauté chopped onions in  olive oil until tender. Remove from skillet and place in 4 quart saucepan. Add remaining ingredients, simmer on low-medium heat for about 1 hour, stirring often. Do not allow to stick or burn.
