The little one was craving pork spareribs again so I honored her request last week and made them for dinner late in the week. She actually wanted me to make them the same way as last time with the Honey Maple BBQ Sauce because she liked them so much, but then I wouldn’t have a new recipe to experiment with now would I!
So, then she asked if I had any more Garlic Head BBQ Sauce (which I didn’t but will definitely be ordering some after I get back from vacation!), but figured I’d try to make my own kind that was similar.
My version was not even close, BUT it was FANTASTIC in it’s own right. It was sticky, gooey, tomato-y and garlicky all in one. In fact, I have to make this again to give to my in-laws for a bbq they’re having with friends because my hubby was RAVING about it for days after. It has such a wonderful flavor you can use it on ribs, chicken or even top your hamburger with it. ~Enjoy!
