Tastes quite a bit like the sauce at Smokey Joe’s. This makes just enough sauce. Make more if you want to serve some on the side or are using it on a larger batch of seitan (or whatever).
2 Tbl. brown sugar
1/4-1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4-1/2 tsp. cajun spice (or schwarma spice, which actually I like even better)
4 Tbl. ketchup
4 Tbl. molasses
1/3 tsp. cider vinegar (can also add a bit of lemon juice)
To make the sauce more like Horizon’s BBQ sauce, add some lime and fresh ginger.
Larger Batch Version:
2/3 cup EACH ketchup and molasses
1 tsp. cider vinegar
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. cajun spice
1/3 cup brown sugar
Note: I didn’t cook it before slathering it on the seitan because I was roasting the seitan. But, if you are serving the sauce as a condiment, you need to cook it for a little to dissolve the sugar and blend the flavors.
Slather 3/4 lb. of seitan with sauce and roast at 375 for a half hour. Can serve with more sauce.
