Sweet Tea Peach BBQ Sauce (Whole 30 Approved)

 

Sweet Tea Peach BBQ Sauce (Whole 30 Approved) 3

Happy Tuesday Ya’ll!  I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend, and are took a moment to think about all of the men and women that have made our freedom possible.  I also hope that you had a chance to spend some time with your loved ones, and eat tons of BBQ!  This is my week 3 of doing the Whole 30, and I was thinking this holiday is going to be terrible because I wouldn’t be able to eat all the delicious food.  So my friends I made my own Whole 30 approved recipes!!

It’s sweet, tangy and the perfect pairing with pork and chicken. Sweet Tea Peach BBQ sauce is not your traditional BBQ sauce, but I think it could be a new favorite! I poured mine over the pulled pork I made (recipe coming later this week), but I also think it would be amazing on chicken or shrimp.

Ingredients:

3/4 Cup Peach Juice (make sure you find an all natural, no sugar added one)

1 Cup Peach Tea (I used Charleston’s American Classics)

4 Peaches, skins removed and diced

1 Onion, diced

2 Tablespoons Olive Oil

1/2 Cup White Balsamic Vinegar

4 Tablespoons Tomato Paste

1 Teaspoon Ground Ginger

1/2 Teaspoon Chili Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Salt

1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Black Pepper

1/4 Teaspoon Smoke Flavoring (check the package for ingredients)

To get things started peel and chop the peaches. If you’re looking for a quick way to peel the peaches you can do this or you can purchase frozen peaches in a pinch.

In a medium pan; saute the onions and olive oil until the onions are translucent and soft about 5 minutes.  Add all of the spices (Ginger, Chili Powder, Salt, Garlic Powder, Cinnamon, Pepper); cook for one minute until they become fragrant.

Next add the tomato paste and cook for one minute; add all of the liquids and the peaches.  Cook the mixture over medium low for about 20 minutes until the mixture thickens. You will want to stir the peach BBQ sauce periodically so it doesn’t stick.

Once the sauce has reduced by 1/3 to 1/2 remove from the heat, and use a blender to blend until smooth.  I like to keep it a bit chunky, so I set a bit aside before blending it then add it back into the velvety smooth sauce. Viola! You have Sweet Tea Peach BBQ Sauce.  Next time I’m going to try making it with Mangos!

    I never leave comments/reviews but felt compelled because this was so delicious! My husband and I are doing the Whole 30 so I’m constantly on the hunt for flavourful ways to jazz up our meals. This sauce is awesome! I used fresh garlic (one large clove) and fresh ginger (1/2 inch nob), and made fresh pressed apple juice in my juicer because I couldn’t find peach juice without sugar in it. I think the Apple juice worked just fine. I also added half a seeded jalapeño because we love everything with a little kick! Yum yum yum! Thank you! I rarely try recipes without any reviews, but I’m certainly glad I did this time. Thanks for a great recipe!

    I’m so glad you liked it!!! I appreciate you being brave and trying it and also leaving your feedback. I love BBQ and not being able to eat it in the summer was a huge bummer for me and so the Sweet Tea Peach BBQ sauce was born. Good luck on your whole 30 journey! Don’t forget to check out my other whole 30 recipes I promise they won’t disappoint!
