As we get settled back into our post-holiday routines, dinners can become a bit monotonous. I, for one, have been eating lots of leftovers because I’m behind on my grocery shopping. At times like these, I love it when I can just look around my kitchen and pull together something quick while still pleasing my family and their “taste bugs” (as my daughter calls them).
You’d be surprised how easily you can use every day items you have right in your pantry to create something yummy. I make an easy BBQ sauce from regular items I already have on hand, and I promise it rivals anything you’ll get from the store.
Easy BBQ Sauce
- ¾ cup ketchup
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
Whisk it all together in a bowl and tweak according to your personal preference. You can also combine it all in a saucepan and heat on low, if desired.
Heat up a precooked package of seasoned pork BBQ, mix up some of my Starfruit Slaw, and BOOM! You’re done! Everybody’s taste bugs are happy and you didn’t even have to run to the store.
