Paleo BBQ Sauce
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.
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 the 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 alternations, loved the results and wanted to share this with all of you.
Paleo BBQ Sauce
- 1 1/2 cups of beef broth
- 2 tsps minced garlic (I buy the pre-minced variety)
- 1 can tomato paste (5.5 fl oz)
- 3 tbsps of maple syrup
- 1 tbsps organic apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsps dijon mustard
- 2 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp chili powder
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp cayenne
- Bring broth and garlic to a simmer on medium for 5 minutes.
- Add the rest of the ingredients.
- Simmer on low for 25 minutes, remove from heat and let temperature come down about. Jar it up (or use some reusable containers) and store in the fridge.
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.
