Chef´s Choice – Homemade BBQ-Sauces

Simple and tasty Tomato Sauce

BBQ TimeSummertime is BBQ time. And a good barbecue meal tradtionally includes delicious sauces. Of course, nowadays you can find a wide range of prefabricated sauces in the supermarket shelves, but it’s also fun to create your own sauces. To give you readers a few suggestions, I publish a little series of quick and easy recipes for homemade barbecue sauces.

Your imagination has no limits, changing and complementing the recipes to your taste!


  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 500g tomatoes, skinned, deseeded and finely chopped (or take 400g canned tomatoes)
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 85g brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp malt vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


BBQ Tomato SauceHeat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat and add the onion. Cook about 4-5 minutes, until the onion pieces are slightly brown and softened.

Mix in the remaining ingredients and bring the sauce to the boil stirring constantly, then reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 mins, until the whole lot has thickened. Stir occasionally that nothing adheres to the bottom of the pan. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

If you want a smoother ketchup-like consistency of the sauce, simply shred the mixture in a food processor or with a hand blender for a few seconds.

Born in Augsburg, Bavaria, Germany in 1957, I was educated at a Baccalaureate High School. Later completed Technical University with a degree in Economic Informatics. I served for 12 years in the German Army before joining a French computer company for another 10 years. Then ran my own motorcycle and gastronomy businesses before deciding to retire. I arrived in North Cyprus with my second wife in 2004 and since her sad loss in 2011, I have kept myself very busy trying to help others with similar problems and in 2012 became the Secretary of “The Foreign Residents in the TRNC” (TFR). I am very keen to see expat communities coming together and playing their part in helping North Cyprus, our adopted homeland.
