This barbeque has healthy flavor that will knock your socks off! Forget bottled sauce and get creative to blend your own BBQ sauce with this REALLY flexible recipe! Superfoods and adaptogens make your body sparkle with life force! Spicy, exotic adaptogenic herbs help dissolve stress, and promote blood circulation. Oven baking is clean and tasty, eliminating free radicals from grilling. Feel free to adapt this recipe to your own taste. I used natural chicory root sweetener Just Like Sugar Brown, which tastes delicious, dark, and won’t spike blood sugar or cause weight gain. Even better, it’s a pre-biotic that helps stimulate healthy intestinal flora.
Quality meats have the best flavor. I used Kyzer Farms pork ribs from Albuquerque NM, which are fed the cleanest non-GMO grains, local vegetables, no antibiotics or steroids. Mary’s organic chicken legs are raised clean and rich with flavor. Avoid meats from commercial feed lots that use GMO grains, antibiotics, and growth hormones.
Amazingly, this barbecue sauce tastes hot and spicy with NO nightshades! (See my article Beware of Nightshades). The secret is Galangal, also called Thai ginger, which is spicier than regular ginger root and gives the flavor a tantalizing kick of heat. You can find Galangal in Asian markets, in grocery ethnic section, or online. Look for Thai Kitchen dried galangal. Makes 1 1/2 cups healthy BBQ sauce.
Just for fun, here are the ingredients in a popular BBQ sauce. Pretty scary. Bull’s-Eye BBQ Sauce by Kraft/Heinz claims “no high fructose corn syrup”. However their recipe has changed, and the label lists it as the first ingredient! High Fructose GMO Corn Syrup, Tomato Puree (water, tomato paste), Molasses (sugar), Vinegar, Salt, Modified Food Starch, Natural Smoke Flavor, Mustard Flour, Dried Onions, Spice, Dried Garlic.
