BBQ Sauce with Ribs or Chicken

This combination of rub and BBQ sauce will go down a treat with all your friends and family. Once tasted you’ll never go back to those sickly sweet bottled sauces again.

Dry Rub – GF/V

This rub works perfectly with ribs but also brisket, chicken wings and other BBQ items. The liquorice gives it a unique flavour but complements the other flavours exceptionally well.

In a bowl mix:

  • 25g SugaVida
  • 2 tbsp smoked paprika (either hot or regular depending on your spice level)
  • 1 tbsp sea salt (Maldon or Halen Mon)
  • 2 tsp cayenne pepper and mustard powder
  • 1 tsp each chipotle powder, black pepper, cinnamon, liquorice powder

Rub over ribs, chicken, steak, and leave to marinate for 4+ hours or ideally overnight.

BBQ Sauce – GF/V

This sauce can be used for sausages, burgers and vegetables. It’s one of my favourite recipes and a real crowd pleaser.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 200ml homemade ketchup
  • 100ml water
  • 75ml cider vinegar
  • 150g SugaVida
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce (omit if vegetarian/vegan)
  • 2 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp chipotle powder
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard
  • ½ tsp liquorice powder

Heat oil in a saucepan and sweat onion and garlic for 10 minutes, add rest of ingredients and simmer gently for 30-40 minutes. Either blend using a hand blender or pass through a sieve.
