Gina's Texan BBQ Sauce

A few months ago I put together a little party and had a pulled pork roast in the oven. I made a BBQ sauce that accompanied it, and it was so delicious and I got such great reviews I have decided to post the recipe. I’m sure that a lot of Texans will find it very easy to find this type of BBQ sauce at their local shop, but here in the UK there’s nothing like it. To make it I did have to import a few secret weapons and use my secret stash of ingredients from back home. I understand that many won’t be able to get some of these ingredients, but for those who can this makes a delicious BBQ sauce and will be a hit on all of your BBQ dishes! Enjoy.

700g ketchup (about 2-3cups)
½ c. apple cider vinegar
¼ c. French’s American mustard
½ c. brown sugar
1 tbsp. liquid smoke (mesquite)
1 tbsp. fiesta steak seasoning
2 tbsp. HP sauce
1 c. store bought BBQ sauce (any kind will do)
Couple dashes of Worcestershire sauce
Couple dashes of soy sauce

To cook:
Dump all these ingredients into a pan and bring up to a simmer. Not too fast or you’ll be wearing it!
Simmer for about 30 minutes, taste and adjust seasoning. You might want to add more steak seasoning, or more liquid smoke depending on your tastes.
Cool completely and put into a jar, will last in the fridge several months sealed properly.

Note: If you want to make this and want to make your own steak seasoning here is a quick guide for the spices involved:
Cracked black pepper
Chilli powder
Garlic powder
Onion powder
Brown sugar

I would add equal portions of these and adjust as necessary. Good luck!
