I always love adventures…taking a wrong turn, adding in a teaspoon instead of a tablespoon, accidentally signing up for an event…usually these “mistakes” become adventures and memories. Although the memories may not always be completely positive, I find that I learn something every time and usually have some amazing friends along for the ride!
This is part of why I love cooking; the worst that can happen is one bad dish. Definitely not a horrendous outcome, no matter how horrendous the mistake. These errors also lead to good lessons: 1) always double check if you greased your pan 2) never crack eggs into all of your ingredients (egg shells!) 3) always set the timer for the minimum cook time
Here is a recipe for one of my experiments that magically came out well! I wander through tons of websites and blogs so this recipe has definitely been influenced from what I have seen in the past, but it was a lot of guessing and testing.
I hope you use this recipe as a base, but make it your own! Add an extra dash of hot sauce, a bit of your favorite spice–have fun with it 🙂
6 tbsp apple cider vinegar (I like Bragg’s)
1 tbsp yellow mustard
1 tbsp lemon juice
6 packets stevia (I use NuNaturals)
2 cups stewed, roasted tomatoes
1 tsp liquid smoke (this is a MUST, and I highly recommend it for adding a smoky flavor to any dish)
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp of your favorite hot sauce
- Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan and bring to a boil while stirring continuously.
- Once it has boiled, turn off the heat and let cool.
- Place mixture in the fridge and use it as you would use regular BBQ sauce! Enjoy!
