1 cup ketchup
3/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup cider vinegar
3 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp. salt

4 cloves minced garlic
1 cup chopped onion
1 cup brown sugar

Step 2: Instructions

This Barbecue Sauce is great on beef, pork or chicken!

    Can I double this recipe and put it in the crockpot with chicken breast. I would like to take it to a party. Thank You

    3/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce. Is that correct? Seems like a lot. As a fairly strong flavor, it seems like it might overwhelm the other ingredients.

    I agree it seems like a lot, but there are a lot of other strong flavors there. It does not overwhelm those flavors at all. Try it! I promise it is awesome!!!
