Paleo BBQ Sauce

Homemade Paleo BBQ Sauce - this is super easy to make and tastes delicious. Add it to all of your paleo recipes. Tastes great with chicken, turkey and beef. Sure to be a summer bbq recipe favourite. | The Bewitchin’ Kitchen

Last week I thought I was close to summer (yes, I know it was still January then) but all the snow had melted and I was dreaming of summer bbq’s. Then snowmageddon happened, so I’m doing BBQ my way with this Paleo BBQ Sauce.

How a blogger cooks a meal, I'm sure many of you can understand this

Yes, this is how a blogger cooks (raise your hand if you can agree). I usually try to keep the computer on the other side of my kitchen, and use a notebook up close but today I decided to walk on the wild side. I actually created two posts with this one dinner, Paleo BBQ Sauce and BBQ Chicken Cauliflower Pizza.


In the beginning, the sauce looks a little water, but once it simmers down (insert Dr.Evil here) and reduced you’ll see it’s thick and has a perfect consistency.

This recipe for paleo bbq sauce has been adapted from one of my new favorite blogs, Paleo Newbie (her turkey vegetable meatloaf is to die for and where I found the original version of this recipe). I made a few adaptations, loved the results and wanted to share this with all of you.

This jar doesn’t last long, as I tend to put it on everything. It seriously doesn’t last this family more than a week but Paleo Newbie says her original recipe is good for a month.
