BBQ Sauce

Clean and Tangy BBQ Sauce

Who doesn’t love a great BBQ sauce with their favorite grilled meats? It is a classic American staple at cookouts and this is a fantastic ‘cleaned up’ version of a favorite condiment. I made this Clean and Tangy BBQ Sauce tonight to pair with my slow cooked pulled pork and it was delicious! Basili (my husband) asked if I made the sauce and he said he really liked it – just a little hint of spicy and overall tangy – without all of the junk! 🙂 I got this recipe from my friend Emily, who found it for a clean eats group we hosted together last summer – we will definitely be utilizing this delicious condiment much more often!

Pin it, try it and let me know what you think!

    Love your other recipes and couldn’t wait to try this… I doubled the recipe to use the amount of tomato paste I had and the garlic powder smacked me right in the face! Is it really 2T and not 2tsp? I kept the sauce anyways and will have to play around with it to see if I can mellow it out. Any suggestions?!

      Hi Jen! Sorry about that! (I am a super huge fan of garlic over here – keeps the vampires away haha!!) Sorry it was too much – I am wondering if you could maybe just add in a little more tomato paste and water and maybe some worchestershire sauce to taste??
