Whole 30 and Paleo BBQ Sauce

There's not a whole lot of recipes for Whole30 or Paleo BBQ sauce that don't use exotic ingredients like Tamarind. Since I don't live anywhere near a market that would sell that I had to come up with my own recipe.

I will warn you, this is a Texas Style sauce, therefore it is vinegar heavy and not sweet.

Whole 30 and Paleo BBQ Sauce

1 large onion diced
2T compliant oil
6 cloves of garlic
16 oz of organic tomato sauce
4 dates chopped and diced finely
2 T of coconut amnios
4 T apple cider vinegar
2 t black pepper
1/2 t salt
4 t ground mustard
1 t Wright's All Natural Liquid Smoke Hickory or 1 t of smoked paprika

Medium Saucepan
Blending Stick
Mason Jars
Measuring Spoons

Make it:

In a saucepan saute the diced onion and garlic until browned. Add the tomato sauce, dates, coconut amnios, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper,smoked hickory (or smoked paprika) and ground mustard.

Stir Well.

Bring to a simmer for 10 minutes and then using a blending stick or your blender, completely blend the BBQ sauce.

To bottle:

Make sure your mason jar is sterile by thouroughly cleaning them with boiling water or washing them on the sterilize cycle on your dishwasher.

Pour your sauce into the bottle while is just off the simmer. Be caeful and I recommend rubber gloves for protection.

Immediately tighten the cap and allow to gently cool. The cap should seal.

Can be stored in the refridgerator for a few months but use it within a week of opening/breaking the seal.

Serve over all BBQ but I especially recommend my pulled pork recipe coming tomorrow!
