One of my favorite meals is chicken wings, and I’ve worked for years to perfect my own BBQ sauce. Having allergies, I can’t just buy some off the shelf–at least not very economically.
So I now have a delicious sauce recipe for however I choose to cook my wings. (And it’s economical, which is great, since with allergies so many things cost so much more than they should.) Sometimes, I put the sauce directly onto the wings and bake them. Other times, I dip the wings into corn starch, deep fry them until golden, put them into a pan, and then add the sauce. The latter is tastier, but more time consuming.
So without further ado, here is my fabulous BBQ sauce recipe!
1 can of crushed tomatoes
1 cup of vegetable oil
3/4 cup of lemon juice
1 head of garlic blended
1 cup of packed brown sugar (sometimes I like to add a little more, depending on my mood. The sweeter the sauce the longer you’ll want to cook it.)
1 tbsp salt
Hot peppers (as much as you like, and blended)
Blend lemon juice, garlic and hot peppers together in the blender. Add them to the rest of the ingredients in a large pot. Stir together well and put on the stove on medium. Once it boils, lower the heat to low and simmer for at least an hour. The sauce will thicken, deepen in color and caramelize.
Easier than you thought, isn’t it? And it’s so tasty! You can add anything you like to your taste: thyme, rosemary, smoke flavouring… whatever strikes your fancy!
