If you haven’t discovered Stubb’s BBQ sauce, you are missing out. It’s the cleanest, tastiest stuff on the market. Yes–I did just say tastiest–and coming from a former Sweet Baby Ray’s-enthusiast, that’s A LOT.
Just kidding! You could easily modify this to suit your tastes, whether you like more kick or less in your sauce. (Follow the recipe below, and then water it down a smidgen with chicken broth or amp up the heat with more spices once you’ve tasted it.)
Potent Primal BBQ Sauce
- 6 Campari tomatoes, sliced in half and seeded
- 2 Jalapeños, sliced in half and seeded
- 3 Garlic cloves
- 1 Tablespoon of bacon fat, melted
- 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 Shallot, minced
- 1 Teaspoon organic spicy mustard
- 1 Teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 Teaspoon chipotle chili powder
- 1 Teaspoon ground cumin
- 1/2 Teaspoon sea salt
- 1 Cup organic chicken broth
- 1 and 1/2 limes, juiced
- 1 6-oz can of tomato paste
- Pre-heat the oven to 450 degrees F.
- Place the tomatoes, garlic and jalapeños in a baking dish or roasting pan (we used a shallow glass baking dish).
- Drizzle the bacon fat over everything.
- Sprinkle the 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt over everything.
- Roast for approximately 15 minutes.
Set aside and allow it to cool. Then, move on to the rest of the recipe.
- Heat coconut oil in a medium sauce pan over medium heat.
- Press the roasted garlic and add to the sauce pan.
- Immediately add the minced shallot.
- Sauté until shallot is soft and translucent.
- Add the mustard, smoked paprika, chipotle chili powder, cumin and the 1/2 teaspoon salt.
- Stir to blend in the spices.
- Then, add the chicken broth, lime juice, and tomato paste.
- Add roasted tomatoes and jalapeños, and stir.
- Bring everything to a soft boil, then reduce it to a simmer and lightly cover it with a lid.
- Simmer for about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat, and allow the mixture to cool.
Wednesday for lunch, we slathered it on slow-cooked pork shoulder and served it on a bed of greens (baby spinach and spring mix, to be specific). It was delicious! Next week, we’re thinking about using it on ribs and/or chicken. We hope you enjoy it as much as we have!
