A quick and easy BBQ sauce. Great as a dip or for glazing ribs or chicken. I like to blend it smooth for glazing.

Interesting flavor with the fennel seeds and soy sauce very non-traditional. I ran short of BBQ sauce for a slow cooker pulled pork recipe today so I made this easy sauce and used about 1/2 cup to top off off the pork. I think this would be outstanding on ribs or even grilled pork chops. Read More
