When I was a kid, my mother made almost everything from scratch, including barbecue sauce. I grew up eating this barbecue sauce, and to my taste buds, no other sauce is as good as this recipe. The recipe came from my Aunt Marlyn, and it's a combination of sweet, savory, and tangy all at once. And yes, in my family, we call it Psycho Sauce. I just made a mess of pork ribs the other night with this, and it was heaven. This sauce is really easy to make!
My Aunt Marlyn's Psycho BBQ Sauce Recipe
This recipe fills a Mason jar. Can be used on ribs, steaks, burgers, chicken, etc. This sauce keeps in the fridge for a long time.
Ingredients: 3 teaspoons salt 3 teaspoons dry mustard 3 teaspoons chili powder 3 teaspoons paprika 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar 6 tablespoons catsup 6 tablespoons cider vinegar 3 tablespoons lemon juice 6 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 6 tablespoons vegetable oil 1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon water
Preparation: In a saucepan, combine the 5 dry ingredients. Blend in the catsup until smooth - this helps to smooth out the dry mustard so it doesn't float when the liquids are added. Blend in the remaining ingredients.
Bring to a boil over medium heat, and then reduce to a simmer and stir until thickened, about 10 minutes.
