Looking for a nightshade free bbq sauce that’s rich, sweet & tangy? This is it. This AIP BBQ Sauce from The Paleo Healing Cookbook looks, tastes & acts just like your old favorite recipe.

I usually make a double batch, since it keeps in the fridge for weeks.

Instructions

BLEND: Add all ingredients except the bacon fat to a blender and process until smooth and combined, scraping down the sides a few times as needed.

SIMMER: Pour the blended BBQ sauce mixture into a saucepan over medium heat, heating gently until the bbq sauce comes to a simmer. Add the bacon fat and stir until it melts and combines evenly with the bbq sauce.

THICKEN: Reduce the heat so that the BBQ sauce simmers gently but doesn’t boil or splash and cook, stirring gently, until the sauce thickens and darkens to a rich, deep brown hue. Don’t worry about the foam that you may see on the top of the sauce at the beginning – just keep stirring regularly and it will dissipate as the sauce cooks, reduces and thickens. If you like your BBQ sauce with a bit more tanginess, add additional apple cider vinegar, to taste, then cook for an additional 5 minutes at the end.

STORE: Pour the finished nightshade free BBQ sauce carefully into jars to cool. You can keep the BBQsauce in the fridge for up to 2 months. You can use it straight from the fridge as a marinade, but you’ll want to gently reheat it to use on the side as the bacon fat will re-solidify when chilled.

Notes

To make a coconut free of this nightshade free BBQ sauce, omit the coconut aminos and increase the fish sauce by 2 tablespoons / 30 ml and the balsamic vinegar by 1 tablespoon / 15 ml. You can also add 3 tablespoons of broth or water, if you like, to make up the liquid volume lost.
