Sweet & Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce


My new favorite Paleo Barbecue sauce! Particularly good on skinless, boneless chicken thighs! I make a batch in advance and keep it in the refrigerator. Honestly I have been craving this on a weekly basis! Enjoy these precious last few weeks of Summer with some good ole fashioned BBQ!

(Makes about 4 cups of BBQ sauce)
2 6-oz cans of tomato paste
1 1/4 C agave nectar
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
3 T Dijon-style mustard
2 T olive oil
2 T *coconut aminos
2 tsp. onion powder
2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp. sea salt

Combine all ingredients and mix well! I let some sauce sit on the chicken a bit before barbecuing, and brush some on the chicken as needed while barbecuing. Delicious!
Hope you enjoy!

*Coconut Aminos is my absolute favorite soy-free seasoning sauce. You can find it at most health food stores. Brand name: Coconut Secret.

yummy sauce but the meat looks awfully charred.

the tomato paste and other ingredients burn easily on a grill. sauces should only be brushed on at the very end to avoid charring, which is carcinogenic.

another alternative is to slice oranges and place the slices on the grill - cook the chicken on top of them.

I use an apple chipotle brine on mine and don't use sauce because there is less sugar. brined chicken always come out awesome on the grill.

you inspired me to post this on my blog.

This looks good. Have you heard of the cancer correlation with food that gets blackened and burned? I've heard that recently but I'm not 100% sure about that.

Some really useful slides here. I've been looking for something like this to help with a research piece I've been working on.

Agave nectar is NOT paleo and is as bad, if not worse, than high fructose corn syrup.

Scott said...

Agave can certainly be considered paleo. Early Agave was thought to be too "processed" to be paleo. Some agave available today has had very little processing making it ok for a majority of the paleo crowd. Of course, there are always the extremists that go overboard.

Definitely going to test this out. The picture really sells your bbq recipe!
