Update on Bar-B-Que Sauce Experiment

Good Sunday Morning.

In yesterday’s post I mentioned that I had beef in the crock pot along with Coca-Cola, Ketchup and Lipton Onion Soup mix.

Well here is a report on last night’s dinner:

It was delicious. I started the crock-pot at 7:08 a.m. and ate a little after 4 p.m. (had early dinner because I was attending church last night instead of Sunday.)


Here is what I used.

1 1/2 cup Coca-Cola

1 1/2 cup Hunt’s Ketchup

2 teaspoons Lipton Onion Soup

These measurements were just made up.  I had  2.15 lb’s beef and had more than enough sauce.  So next time I will cut back.  There was not a lot of onion flavor, so next time I will use more of it.  I was afraid of getting too much onion.

The sauce was very runny so next time I need to add a thickener.

When I sampled the meet at 3 p.m., I added a heaping tablespoon of “Burger and Brat Mustard” from Tastefully Simple and the rest of the bottle of ketchup.  The sauce just seemed to be missing something.


This recipe is a good sauce base, but then add whatever you feel like in the way of seasonings.

I just ate this by itself for dinner, so sides.  But I did wash it down with a tall glass of Coke on the rocks.  (no rum)
