Over the next few days, I will share recipes that would be good choices for a 4th of July Celebration or anytime during the summer. The recipe below is my go to recipe for barbecue sauce. It goes well with anything including pork or chicken. It is the Western North Carolina style with a ketchup base and it easy to prepare.
Western (NC) Style Barbecue Sauce
1 cup ketchup
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup lemon juice
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/4 cup minced onion
1 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
Place all ingredients in saucepan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Makes 1 and one half cups.
Hope you enjoy this and thanks for stopping by. Happy July 4th everyone and God Bless America.
