Homemade Sweet BBQ Sauce

Using the leftover broth from your roast to get the delicious and unique bbq sauce to enjoy every time because I believe in no food left behind!

What if I don’t have leftover stock from roasting meat?

You can simply use water.

Making homemade bbq sauce is still not the healthiest thing but better.

I cannot claim that this is a healthy recipe, but since my husband cannot live without BBQ sauce whenever we have steaks, I decided to help him avoid more additives ingredients that I can’t say the name and make it myself. Just know that most BBQ sauce contain some sugar so eat or use it sparingly if you are health cautious! Now, that I have disclosed this important fact, let’s dive into the recipe.

I used leftover stock from my 45 minutes homemade BBQ ribs to make this sauce. You can use any stock or just make the water base bbq sauce too.
