Barbecue Sauce Recipe - Aunty JJ likes dry rub [reposted on Home Cooking]

LOCKED DISCUSSION

I am teaching my nephew how to cook. He is eighteen and I don't want him to starve to death. His mom doesn't like to and can't cook. Ask me about the casserole that required cream a mushroom soup she didn't have so used alphabet soup. Interesting and funny meal. I digress. Well we made pulled pork and I have showed him how to make several meals using the pork. Stir fried cabbage, shrimp and with the pork and also tacos. Tomorrow we are having big pig sandwiches - slice of ham, pulled pork, pepper jack cheese, coleslaw and honey mustard. He wants to try a barbecue sauce that doesn't have a tomato base (he hates tomatoes and ketchup). Since I hate barbecue sauce (and didn't eat ketchup until my 30's and still not a big fan) I make my own sauce with honey, Dijon mustard, apple cider and a little apple cider vinegar. He is allergic to apples. I thought of using hoisin sauce or a mixture of honey and soy sauce. Does any one have a alternative sauce recipe without the tomatoes that we could try?

  1. This should probably go on the Home Cooking board, but mojo criollo is excellent with pork, as is Carolina pepper/vinegar sauce.

      Thank you favrmeistr I will try to repost on the home cooking board. Thank You for the suggestion as I use Mojo Crillo , Naranja Orange and Adobo when I grill chicken sometimes.
