This recipe has been used in our family for years. It's better than any store-bought sauce and so quick and easy to make! Have extra sauce on hand because people will want to use it as a dipping sauce too.

As BBQ sauce it was fine. But it was NOTHING like honey garlic sauce. The tomatoes completely changed it. Read More

I like my honey garlic sauce on the sweeter side. This recipe has mostly ketchup and it seems to take over the flavour. I had to add some extra honey and even a bit of brown sugar to help sweeten it. I would recommend using only 1/3-1/2 cup of ketchup to keep the tangy flavour down. Read More
