Recipe Prep

This sriracha barbecue sauce requires very little prep work. You just need to chop a few tablespoons of fresh cilantro.


Cooking Methods & Equipment

You’ll need a small saucepan for a single recipe, use a medium or large pan if you’re making a larger batch.

I make this as one of my camp stove recipes but you can also make it over a campfire too.


Recipe Steps

Step 1. Prepare your ingredients, heat source and equipment as directed.

Step 2. Melt butter. Place sauce pan on your stove top over medium-high heat.

Step 3. Stir in remaining ingredients. Use a whisk or spoon to stir the sriracha sauce, honey, soy sauce, cilantro, lime juice and rice vinegar with the melted butter.

Step 4. Remove from heat. Use immediately or refrigerate. If using immediately, place lid (or use foil) to cover the pan and let stand at room temperature. I using later, let cool and place in airtight container and refrigerate up to 1 week.


Substitutions

There is no substitution for Sriracha Sauce. It is one of my favorite sauces and one of my most important pantry staples. I prefer the Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Sauce. It is available in the Asian food section of most grocery stores across the United States as well as online.

Cilantro is an important ingredient in this homemade bbq sauce recipe. I know some people really hate the taste of cilantro. So, even though I don’t recommend it, you can substitute fresh parsley.


How To Use This Recipe

Great barbecue sauces can be used the way you use your favorite bbq sauce on grilled meats, like chicken breasts and pork chops, or smoked meats, like pork ribs.

This is such a versatile sauce, consider using it as a marinade for tofu or vegetables or as a dipping sauce for foods like French fries.

Try using this homemade sriracha bbq sauce as one of your condiments. It’s great in place of ketchup for topping your favorite meatloaf or drizzled on top of your favorite pizza.

Make sriracha barbecue chicken wings, it’s a nice change from the typical buffalo style spicy sauce. Place wings in a single layer on grill grates, cook on both sides till cooked through. Remove from heat and toss with this Asian-flavored spicy honey sriracha sauce. Serve hot.
