How to make your own BBQ sauce is a little easier than you think.
It doesn’t require any fancy equipment, and it doesn’t even need a big pot or grill.
In fact, it’s really the perfect sauce for those times when you need something savory and tasty but don’t want to spend all your money on a saucepan.
Here’s how to make a barbecue sauce for your own home grill.
How to put the sauce on the steak You’ll need the following ingredients: 1 lb ground beef 1-1/2 cups barbecue sauce (you can also use tomato sauce or mayonnaise) 1 tablespoon barbecue spice mix (or any combination of ground spices) 1 cup tomato sauce 1/2 cup mayonnaize 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (optional) You can make your sauce from any of the saucepans we recommend here, but this one’s a favorite among some of our readers.
Add the ground beef to a large pot with enough water to cover it.
Add 1/4 cup of the barbecue sauce and bring to a boil over medium heat.
Cook until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 3 minutes.
Add 3 tablespoons of the tomato sauce and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring often to prevent burning.
Remove the sauce from the heat and set aside.
Pour the rest of the BBQ sauce into a medium saucepan, stirring to ensure no lumps.
Add a pinch of salt and cook until the salt has dissolved, about 30 seconds.
Add 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce to the saucepan and whisk until it thickens slightly, 1 to 2 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Add shredded cheddar to the hot saucepan to thicken.
Heat until the cheese has melted and browned slightly, 3 to 4 minutes.
Place the sauce back into the sauce pan and cover with a lid.
Place a large plate on top of the lid to hold the sauce while you work on the grill.
When the steak is cooked, add the barbecue spice mixture to the meat and stir well.
Continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes, or until the spices are well-combined.
Add tomatoes and cheese and continue cooking until the tomatoes are almost done, about 1 to 1 1/3 minutes.
The meat should be well-browned and crisp when it’s done.
Remove any excess meat from the grill, and serve immediately.
