Tomato Sauce with Bacon

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!

bbq-tomato-sauce-with-baconAdd the onion and fry until it becomes slightly brown. Add the garlic, continue frying only for a short time.

Sprinkle all with brown sugar and let the sugar caramelize.

Reduce heat and stir in the vinegar, tomato paste and canned tomatoes.

Season with mustard, chili powder and paprika powder. Add Worcester sauce and some drops of Tabasco sauce to your taste.

By using vinegar and sugar, the BBQ sauce is durable and can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for several days.

I am very keen to see expat communities coming together and playing their part in helping North Cyprus, our adopted homeland.
