My favorite homemade barbeque sauce

This sauce was originally posted under my Ribs post but I thought I’d repost here for easier viewing.  Enjoy!

Jack’s BBQ Sauce, from Cooking Thin with Chef Kathleen

1 tsp olive oil

6 tbsp finely chopped onion (about 1 small)

1 clove garlic, peeled and minced

1 bay leaf

2 tbsp fresh lemon juice

1 cup ketchup

¼ cup water

2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

½ tsp Tabasco sauce

¼ tsp cracked black pepper

¼ tsp celery seeds

¼ tsp ground allspice

In a small saucepan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking.  Add onion, garlic, and bay leaf.  Reduce heat to low and cook covered until onion softens, 6 to 8 minutes.  Add a little water if needed to keep onions from burning.  Whisk in remaining ingredients.  Bring to a boil, immediately reduce heat to a simmer, and cook 10 minutes, or until onion has softened completely and sauce has thickened to desired consistency.  Remove bay leaf before serving.
