Clean BBQ Sauce


In our sculpt class we were discussing clean eating and how
most BBQ sauces have HFCS in them. BOOO.
This is a recipe that we use. It uses molasses or dark Agave
nectar for sweetening.


  • 2 tbsp. canola oil
  • 1 small white onion, diced small
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1 can (6 oz.) tomato paste
  • 2 tsp. ground mustard
  • 1 can (28 oz.) tomato sauce
  • 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses (you can substitute this with dark agave nectar)
  • 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 tbsp. white vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. ground pepper


  1. In a medium saucepan, heat canola oil over medium heat.  Add diced onion and cook until completely soft, approximately 5 minutes.  Add garlic and cook about 1 minute.
  2. Add the tomato paste and mustard.  Stirring constantly, cook until paste turns a bright red in color, approximately 5 minutes.  Add 2 cups water, tomato sauce, molasses, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, salt and pepper.  Stir until smooth.
  3. Bring mixture to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and cover partially.  Stirring occasionally, simmer for 2 hours.  You can thin the sauce down with water if it becomes too thick.  Add more vinegar, salt and/or pepper to taste (if desired).
  4. Let completely cool before using.

Note:  Can be refrigerated up to 1 week or frozen up to 4 months.
