  • Tablespoon
  • Teaspoon
  • Measuring Jug or Cups
  • Medium sized saucepan
  • Wooden or heat resistant stirrer


  • 250 ml tomato paste
  • 2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tbsp apple cider vinegar or white wine vinegar
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 4 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp Sunkrin Gold or a similar granulated sweetener
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 ½ cups of water
  • A pinch of ground cloves (optional)
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)


  • Whisk all ingredients vigorously to ensure they are thoroughly combined and then add water. Spices such as garlic powder and chili add a lot of flavor and depth to recipes so do not be afraid of them.
  • Gently boil the ingredients at medium-high heat then reduce it to medium-low. Stir frequently as the sauce simmers for 20 minutes or until it slightly thickens.
  • Taste and adjust the cayenne pepper or sweetener if you like a sauce that is spicier or sweeter. If the result is thicker than it is intended to be, stir in additional water one tablespoon at a time until you reach the desired consistency.
