Apple syrup bbq sauce

We made this apple syrup bbq sauce for our roasted spareribs, but the sauce also tastes great over a grilled pork chop or a kilo of chicken wings.

The sauce is made with appel stroop. That’s a sort of molasses made with apples. In the Netherlands, stroop is mostly eaten as a spread on bread. These spare ribs are nice and sweet and get a nice kick due to the chilli pepper and chipotle.


  • 200 ml of ketchup
  • 200 grams of appel stroop
  • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp chipotle
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp garlic granulate
  • salt and black pepper to taste


  1. Take a saucepan and add the ketchup, apple syrup, vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Bring this to a gentle boil while stirring so that the apple syrup mixes well.
  2. Then add the brown sugar, chipotle, cinnamon and the garlic granulate.
  3. Let the sauce simmer slightly until the sugar has melted and dissolved.
