Store Cupboard Barbecue Sauce

 Quick and easy BBQ sauce
The grey clouds have been lingering all day with a constant threat of rain until suddenly the sun is spotted. Before you know it's the best part of the day and the chance for a BBQ has to to be seized. A quick rifle through the kitchen cupboards and freezer and you're clutching some hotdogs, sausages and some pieces of unidentifiable meat. The problem is you have nothing to go with it. A quick and easy sauce would be the answer; something made with stuff you already have at home...

The good people at Kikkoman sent me a selection of their soy sauces and marinade to try out and of course soy sauce is the perfect store cupboard essential. Whilst many people associate soy sauce with just oriental dishes there are many other uses for it and it is a vital ingredient in this tangy BBQ accompaniment.


1 tbsp (15ml) Oil, sunflower or vegetable
1 Onion, chopped
2 tbsp (30ml) Sweet or country pickle or dark fruit chutney
2 tsp (10ml) Kikkoman Soy Sauce
2 tbsp (30ml)Tomato purée
¼ tsp (1.25ml) Caster sugar
1 tsp (5ml) Dijon mustard
1 tbsp (15ml) Vinegar
2 tbsp (30ml) Cornflour
¼ pint (150ml) Water


1. Heat the oil in a saucepan and cook the onions until softened.
2. In a bowl mix together the pickle, Kikkoman Soy Sauce, tomato purée, sugar, mustard and vinegar.
3. Whisk the mixture until fully combined and then pour into the saucepan.
4. Add the cornflour to the water and stir.
5. Pour into the saucepan and then heat until just boiling and the sauce has thickened.
6. Serve with the barbecue meat of your choice.

Kikkoman sent me the Soy Sauce for free. No payment was made for writing this post.
