Tuesday we posted the Garlic Roast Pork from the newly released Paleo Approach Cookbook by Sarah Ballantyne, PhD. A great way to serve that, is as pulled pork with this barbecue sauce, also from the book. 

We’re located in the south and we take barbecue pretty seriously. In addition, it’s also summer here almost year round, so, as you can imagine, we’re out grilling most nights!  Going paleo can put a damper on your holiday barbecues and pool parties when you cut out the sauces that contain rancid cheap oils and high fructose corn syrup or other added sugars. Add to that if you are following an Auto Immune Protocol (AIP); how the heck to you do BBQ without tomatoes?!!! Well… here’s how:
This is a delicious way to add some tangy saucy goodness back into the barbecue without the sugar or the tomatoes!

Quick Tip
  1. This pairs really well with smoked meats or charcoal grilled meats, however, if you use an indoor grill or gas grill, you can add a drop or two of liquid smoke to the barbecue sauce recipe for added flavor.
