Gluten-Free Barbecue Sauce

Gluten-Free Barbecue Sauce
Elana Amsterdam

There are three basic barbecue sauces out there — tomato, mustard, or vinegar. Unfortunately, each of these recipes contain a significant amount of sugar, so I adapted this basic, tomato-based sauce and used orange juice as a natural sweetener to make it low in sugar.

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1/4 Cup minced shallots
  • One 7-ounce jar organic tomato paste
  • 1 Cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 Teaspoon dry mustard powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 Teaspoon Celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper

Directions

Warm the oil in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the garlic and shallot and cook until soft. Add the tomato paste, orange juice, vinegar, mustard, paprika, salt, and pepper. 

Simmer over low heat 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often.

Barbecue Shopping Tip

To add lots of flavor without a whole lot of fuss, try purchasing some steak seasoning.

Barbecue Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
