For this week’s What To Make With What’s On Sale post, we’re considering a condiment! Barbecue sauce is cheap (or free) at Safeway this week: KC Masterpiece Sauce or Marinade is $0.99 with in-ad or e-coupon, and combined with a coupon, it’s free!
Barbecue sauce is great to have for basting grilled meat or for topping burgers, and it can be put to good use in other creative ways as well. Here are seven ideas for how to use barbecue sauce!
Make barbecue meatballs. Using your favorite meatball recipe (mine consists of half sausage, half ground beef), prepare meatballs and cover with a cup or two of barbecue sauce. Bake at 350 degrees for one hour, or place in a slow cooker set to low for 4 hours. Serve the meatballs as an appetizer, as an entree over rice, or in a hoagie roll for a tasty sandwich!
Use barbecue sauce in place of tomato sauce on pizza. Here’s a recipe for BBQ Chicken Pizza — it’s yummy and so easy to make!
Throw together some barbecue meat for sandwiches. You can use nearly any type of leftover meat, shredded or chopped, and heat it with barbecue sauce for a tasty sandwich filling. Or, try slow cooking a beef roast, pork roast, or chicken breasts with a bottle of barbecue sauce and a cup of broth. Simple and delicious!
Make baked beans. The Pioneer Woman has an amazing recipe for The Best Baked Beans Ever that calls for bottled barbecue sauce. If you want to make it a little simpler, skip the bacon, onions and bell pepper and just heat the remaining ingredients on the stovetop. (But I definitely recommend following the recipe if you have time!)
Cook a juicy beef brisket. Here’s a great recipe for Oven Barbecued Beef Brisket that uses a cup of barbecue sauce. I’ve made this recipe several times and my brisket has always turned out flavorful and moist!
Bake barbecue chicken. BBQ chicken doesn’t have to be done on the grill — this recipe for Baked Barbeque Chicken looks yummy and couldn’t be easier!
And here’s one more recipe — Tangy Sirloin Strips — that uses barbecue sauce and sirloin steak, which is at a rock-bottom price at Albertson’s this week. I can’t wait to try this (as soon as we have a day that’s warm enough to go out and fire up the grill!)
