Sweet Barbecue Sauce

    10 minutes

    This sauce goes great with pork or beef. It works especially well poured over spare ribs and slow cooked in a slow cooker until the meat is falling off the bones.

    I made this recipe exactly as posted, although I was a bit hesitant because ingredients sound a bit unusual. I was glad I did. It was GREAT! My family loved it! I made it, tasted it and then put it in the crock pot with ribs - YUMMY! If you use crock pot, be sure to watch it as it may get too dark (due to sugars) if cooked too high and too long. Thanks for the recipe!  -  25 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    this was way too much sugars so I cut them all down using only 1/2 1 cup of ea they were still sweet but they were good. Fixed exactly as recpie called only using 1/2 of all sugars next time I will use only 3/4 cup each or maybe 1/2 very yummy they were all gone but still very sweet Do brown ribs first wouldn't hurt to cut most of the fat away..Will make again  -  20 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very tasty indeed! I added a good half cup of apple cider vinegar as well for a sharper tang!  -  04 Nov 2011  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
