Papa John's Bar-B-Q Sauce

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

My dad loves to barbecue and this is his own creation. It's absolutely delicious and goes with a variety of meats. It makes a lot, but keeps well in the ice box and it's nice to have it on hand instead of store bought sauce.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • In a large saucepan brown bacon until crispy and discard excess grease. Add onions and cook for a few minutes until wilted.
  • Combine soy sauce, garlic, tomato puree, corn syrup, molasses, brown sugar and liquid smoke. Add to bacon and onion in the saucepan. Season with chili powder, mustard, paprika, cayenne, ground cloves, bay leaf and salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
