The well known barbecue sauce from Arby's® is something nice to have in your home kitchen for homemade roast beef sandwiches. I happened to see a recipe on the Internet so I decided to put it in Food Nirvana. Having tested it I say there is little resemblance to the real Arby's® BBQ sauce. I fixed it as best I could quickly by adding 1/4 cup of Classic Kansas City BBQ Sauce. Still, even though it greatly improved the Internet recipe, the end result is that I do not yet have a suitable recipe for Arby's® BBQ sauce, so I am putting this recipe into the research area.
Here is my latest thinking, which varies considerably from the initial recipe shown below. 1/2 cup of ketchup, 3 tbsp. of water, 3 tbsp of light corn syrup, 1 tsp. of fresh lemon juice, pinch of cayenne pepper ... and then test it and modify as necessary. I will report back with decent results once I have figured out how to make this product.
1 cup of ketchup
2 tsp. of water
1/4 tsp. of garlic powder
1/4 tsp. of onion powder
1/4 tsp. of pepper
1/4 tsp. of salt
1/2 tsp. of Tabasco sauce
1/4 cup of Classic Kansas City BBQ Sauce
Combine all ingredients in a small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce boils.
Remove the sauce from the heat and cool to room temperature, covered.
Refrigerate the sauce. It will keep for a month or more.
Makes one and one quarter cups.
