Making homemade barbecue sauce

  • Peel and chop the onion arbitrarily, but not very large. Finely chop the garlic. Wash the ginger well and chop it arbitrarily (you can not peel the ginger).
  • Pour vegetable oil into a heavy bottomed saucepan and place over medium heat. When the oil is hot, add the onion and fry until golden brown. Then add the garlic and sauté for another 2-3 minutes.
  • In the fried vegetables, add orange juice (possible with pulp), brown sugar. Simmer for 2 minutes. Then add honey, ginger root, mustard, wine vinegar and tomato paste. Mix everything thoroughly and simmer for another 2 minutes.
  • Then add s / s tomatoes, mix thoroughly again, cover and simmer until the vegetables are fully cooked for 20-25 minutes. Season the barbecue sauce to taste with salt.
  • Now there are two options for how to puree the sauce. Option number 1 is the easiest, just punch the contents of the pan with a blender, if desired, wipe it through a fine sieve. Option number 2 is more difficult, but more correct. Pass the contents of the pan through a fine sieve.
  • The BBQ sauce should be smooth and uniform. Transfer the pureed sauce to a jar and use as directed. Sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Barbecue sauce can also be frozen, then the shelf life is extended to 6 months, without any consequences for the taste.
