The best BBQ sauce that you'll ever taste

With a BBQ weekend on the horizon (cross those fingers tight) I wanted to share a recipe that I discovered a few years ago. It is for the most utterly divine BBQ sauce. The best you'll ever taste, I promise! If you like BBQ sauce that is sticky like jam, sweet like brown sugar and so ridiculously moreish that you will want to eat it with a spoon, then you're going to love this.

Smother it over sausages, burgers, kebabs, roasted vegetables and whatever else is cooking on your grill. You won't regret it, and you'll never buy a bottle of supermarket sauce again.


  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • olive oil
  • 1 red chilli, finely chopped 
  •  salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp fennel seeds, crushed
  • 55g/2oz dark brown sugar
  • 50ml/1¾fl oz dark soy sauce
  • 300ml/10fl oz tomato ketchup

Preparation method

  1. Fry the onion and garlic in olive oil with the chilli, fennel seeds and sugar.
  2. Add the soy sauce and ketchup and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Bring to the boil and simmer for a few minutes to combine the flavours.
