Something about homemade always tastes better. This sauce was so GOOD!! Making things from scratch has been one of my newer adventures. I understand the need to save time but the taste of homemade is nostalgic. This is the sauce I used for my BBQ pineapple pulled pork and I have linked this to the original post. If you are short on time you can make it the day before and store in an airtight container.
Homemade BBQ Sauce
2 cups pineapple juice
1 Can Tomato Paste
1 Can Tomato Sauce
1/2 Yellow onion diced into small pieces
2 tablespoons minced garlic ( about 5 Cloves)
2 1/2 tablespoons grated or minced fresh ginger
1 Jalapeño, diced, seeds removed. Can sub-Shishito or poblano.
3 tablespoons Apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs Coconut Aminos
1 Tsp Salt
1. Dice up your jalapeño, grate your ginger, and dice up your garlic
2. In a medium saucepan on medium-low add all your ingredients in.
3. Simmer for 30- 45 minutes. If it boils over you have it on too high.
4. Taste and add more salt if necessary.
Add this to your favorite meat dish, Sauteed Mushrooms, or as a dip for your game night.
