Anti-Inflammatory Barbecue Sauce Recipe

Course Condiments, Sauces


  • 4 cups of tomato sauce
  • ½ cup apple cider vinegar
  • ¼ cup dry sherry
  • ¼ cup mustard
  • ½ Tbsp mustard seed
  • 1 Tbsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 Tbsp onion powder
  • 4 cloves fresh garlic
  • 1 tsp cayenne
  • 4 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • honey to taste
  • salt to taste
  • 1 Tbsp molasses optional


  • Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan, excluding the sherry.
  • Adjust the amounts to personal taste and bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the sherry (this helps to keep the flavor).
  • Simmer for at least 1 hour.


If using this sauce while grilling, use half the barbecue sauce to marinate the meat for at least 4 hours or overnight.  Save the rest of the sauce to baste while cooking and for the finished meal.
