BBQ Anything!

I'm not sure if I've posted this recipe before on my blog or on this one, but here it is. This recipe comes from my neighbor Tara who is a goddess in the kitchen. I called her one day after searching and searching for a bbq sauce recipe that wasn't spicy and didn't call for alcohol as all the ones I was finding online and in my cookbooks did. I know I can always call Tara when I need a recipe for something that excludes the alcohol, because she's Mormon and doesn't ever use it!! She's got loads of alternative recipes. Anyway, here it is:

3/4 c Ketchup
1 c Water
2 T Vinegar (white)
1 pkg. Onion Soup (the dry kind, I use Lipton, and sometimes I use Beefy Onion)
1/4 c Honey(I think you can substitute sugar)
4 T Soy Sauce
2 T Worcestershire Sauce

You just mix it all up in a bowl and pour it over whatever you're making. It's not a thick sauce, but it does thicken slightly when you cook it. The first thing I made it for was barbecue chicken wings. I just put the wings and the sauce together in a cast iron skillet on the stove top. Today I'm making it with pulled pork in the crock pot. But I imagine you could use it for whatever dish you want!!

That sounds really yummy, and it's all stuff that you'd probably have in your cabinet anyway! I'm going to try this soon.

...i didn't know Mormons don't drink alcohol.

It's true! They also do NO WORK on Sundays. It's really admirable... they won't even fill up their gas tank.

This looks scrumptious! I'll have to pass it on to my sous chef: hubby is in charge of the grill and all that entails!

We had Mormon landlords, once. We lived in their guesthouse, and I have to admit that I felt a little self conscious about TRIPLING their recycling output. Not only do we enjoy our wine, we entertain a LOT, so that meant a lot of bottles...they never said anything, though. :P
