Easy Barbecue Sauce

Paleo Barbecue Sauce

This super easy Paleo barbecue sauce is made with just a few simple ingredients and tastes just as good as sugar-laden store bought barbecue sauce. I used it last night with my pulled chicken recipe and it was amazing: very flavorful, with just the right balance of tangy and sweet.

Recipe type: Sauce, Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, Primal/Paleo
Yield: 1.5 cups (12 servings)
Ingredients
  • 1 (7 oz) tomato paste jar, no salt or sugar added (3/4 cup)
  • ¾ cup balsamic vinegar (or apple cider vinegar)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons honey
Instructions
  1. Use a hand whisk to whisk everything in a medium bowl until well-blended.
Notes
This barbecue sauce is excellent for brushing on meats, then slow cooking or grilling. This caramelizes the sugars in the sauce and brings out its natural sweetness. Without cooking, it's a bit acidic. I use it most often for oven baked ribs and for pulled chicken.
