Just in time for Memorial Day and the Fourth of July, here’s a recipe for you. If you’ve never had the chance to compare homemade barbeque with your average store bought stuff, we’re very sorry. Fortunately, now you can make your own brag-worthy sauce and impress all your friends and family at your next grill out. This barbeque sauce will taste kind of savory, a little sweet, and a little spicy. Plus it’s easy to make. All you need is a blender and a crockpot. Here’s how to make the saucy magic happen.
- 1 Can Muir Glen Organic Diced Tomatoes, drained
- 1/4 cup diced fresh onion
- 1/4 cup diced apple
- 1/4 cup Coconut Secret Coconut Aminos
- 1/4 cup Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. Muir Glen Organic Tomato Paste
- 2 Tbsp. Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Molasses
- 1 tsp. Simply Organic Garlic Salt
- 1/4 tsp. Simply Organic Poultry Seasoning
- 1/4 tsp. Simply Organic Cayenne Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Simply Organic Chili Powder
- 1/4 tsp. Simply Organic Ground Black Pepper
- Place the drained diced tomatoes, apples, and onion in a blender. Mix them until they form a smooth puree.
- Add the tomato paste, molasses, aminos, vinegar, garlic salt, black pepper, and cayenne, then continue to blend until everything is fully incorporated.
- Now you need the meat to slather your sauce on. We recommend the duBreton Natural Pork Babyback Ribs we just got in, but perhaps we’re a bit prejudiced toward them. For most meats, especially less fatty ones like chicken or turkey, marinating them is a great idea. If you’re going to do this, soak them in cool water with 1/2 cup of lemon juice and 1 tbsp. of sea salt per 1-2 lbs. for at least an hour.
- Once you have your meat ready, put it in your crockpot and make sure you have enough sauce to cover your meat. You can add a little water or some of the tomato juice you drained out of the can if you need to. Cook it on high for 3 1/2 to 4 hours. By this point, the sauce will have caramelized, the meat will be falling off the bone, and your house will smell like a backyard barbeque. Yum.
