A new twist on a standard barbecue sauce. The addition of tart rhubarb makes this sauce both sweet and tangy and goes perfectly on pulled pork sandwiches.
Begin by heating up the oil in your saucepan on medium heat. Toss in the garlic and shallots and let them cook for about 4 minutes. Add in everything else and give a good stir. Bring this to a simmer, stirring on occasion, and cook for about 30 minutes.
Then remove from heat. If you have an immersion blender, use it to blend everything until you have a nice and smooth sauce. If you do not have an immersion blender, carefully pour the mixture into a blender or food processor and blend until you have a smooth sauce.
Let it cool before storing in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. Feel free to freeze some as well as this makes plenty.
Use this as you would like any other barbecue sauce. For me, well, my kids are really into pulled pork. So that is the direction I went with this. We love eating pulled pork sandwiches by steaming lotus leaf buns that you can purchase in the frozen section of your local Asian market. Basically you steam them for about 10 minutes, open them up, and pile your pork in there. Top with the sauce and eat. My kids tore through these like they were going out of style, and the rhubarb barbecue sauce is pretty fantastic. It’s sweet, with a bit of tart, and to me, that is a pretty amazing sauce when you can get that type of balance.
So if you have rhubarb growing in the backyard, or if you find some at your local farmer’s market, pick some up and make this barbecue sauce. I know you will love it! Plus it is a nice surprise that your family or guests will be inquiring about.
Even 87 year old Grandmas have tricks up their sleeve! After trying this jam for the first time and loving the “fresh” strawberry taste and perfect hint of rhubarb, I was in for a big surprise when she let me in on her secret ingredient!
