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.

Prep and Cool time
Total time
Recipe type: Sauce, Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, Primal/Paleo
Yield: 1.5 cups (12 servings)
  • 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
  1. Use a hand whisk to whisk everything in a medium bowl until well-blended.
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.
