Ultimate barbecue sauce

It’s Saturday and I’ve been asking myself what’s for dinner tonight since lunch time. I thought about KFC but it would end up buying the whole bucket and eat that for two days. So, KFC was not a good choice and I was going to cook instead.

Today’s dinner recipe is beef ribs with homemade barbecue sauce. So far I can remember this is my first time cooking something with a homemade barbecue sauce. Since you know, you can get barbecue sauce easily from supermarkets or left over from your takeaway fast-food. 

However, I’m just going to let you know how to make homemade barbecue sauce, and feel free to choose your own meat.




  • A slice of beef fat from the ribs
  • 3 tbs olive oil
  • A bunch of thyme
  • 2 garlic (chopped)
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1 cup of ketchup
  • 1/4 cup of brown sauce
  • 1/4 cup of sweet soy sauce
  • 2 tbs of red wine vinegar
  • 1 tbs of ancient Dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp of paprika powder
  • 1 tsp of ground cumin
  • Fresh ground black pepper


Heat the olive oil in a sauce pan over medium heat. Put thyme and beef fat for about 3 minutes. Add garlic and onion, cook slowly without colouring for another 5 minutes. Add the remaining ingredients, stir the sauce regularly, and turn the heat down. Cook the sauce for about 20 minutes to meld the flavours. Once the sauce is done cooking, set 1/2 cups of the sauce and reserve for serving with you grilled meat.

Use the remaining sauce for drizzling your meat before cooking.
