  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 cup tomato purée
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp hot sauce
  • 2 tsp liquid smoke
Ingredients for Instant Pot BBQ Sauce

I substituted 1/2 cup tomato paste and 1/2 cup water for the tomato purée.

I did not have hot sauce, so I used some crushed red pepper to taste.

I added a bit of white sugar, as I wanted it a bit sweeter.


  1. Turn the pot to the high sauté function. Heat the oil, then sauté the onion until brown, approximately 5 minutes.
  2. While the onions are cooking, add the tomato purée, water, honey and vinegar in a bowl. Combine and add salt and pepper to taste. Then add the garlic powder, cumin, hot sauce and liquid smoke. Mix to incorporate.
  3. Mixing up the sauce ingredients.

  4. Add the liquid to the instant pot. Scrape up any brown bits on the pot. Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes. Naturally release for 10 minutes.

  6. Use an immersion blender until smooth. Check for seasoning and adjust if necessary.

  8. Refrigerate for up to 10 days.

I'm sure it can be frozen.
