Mango BBQ Sauce

Mango BBQ Sauce - Homemade BBQ Sauce Recipe

Does anyone else love BBQ Sauce like I do? I think I could slather it on any and everything; Chicken, Pizza, Hamburgers, Ribs, Eggs {ok, maybe not eggs}, but definitely some veggies. This Mango BBQ Sauce is absolutely delicious. I first made it to go with my Hawaiian Pizza on the Grill as a base sauce. We had this awesome Mopsy Pizza while in Maui and as an attempt to replicate the pizza I needed to make this Mango BBQ sauce. In order to double check my flavor I had my Mother in Law stop over and try it to be sure that I was on point with the taste and she loved it! {Just a warning it does have a bit of a punch because of the chili paste, but it’s so good}

After eating the Hawaiian Pizza I realized this BBQ Sauce is so versatile and needed its own post. It can be used as a marinade, a base sauce, a condiment for a hamburger or sandwich, or a dip. {when I say dip I think of pouring it over some cream cheese and scooping it up with crackers… yum!}

To get started, dice {chop into small pieces} 1/2 red onion, 2 garlic cloves, and 2 ripe mangoes.

Put 2 Tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet at medium high heat, toss in the red onion, garlic cloves, and mango into large skillet. Saute until mango is slightly browned and onions are translucent, about 4-5 minutes.

I love this because I love BBQ sauce but it always makes me feel lousy after eating it. Thinking it’s the gluten- heard they have a lot in there. So homemade would be the answer. Will certainly have to try this- thank you my friend for yet another great recipe!

Yup, the gluten is out of this one. :) You will love it, its sweet and spicy! Thanks for stopping by sweet friend!

I hadn’t either until we went to Hawaii, and then I fell in love. The sweet from the mango and spicy from the chili paste will rock your world! :)

Daniel August 16, 2013 at 8:01 AM

Hi there, this sounds delicious but I was just wondering how long this would last if stored?

Reply

Krista August 16, 2013 at 12:02 PM

Hey Daniel, great question! I used it 2 weeks after I made it and it was still great. :) I don’t think it would last much longer after that, unless it was frozen.

My last trip to Maui was largely because I can never get the Mopsy out of my head and had to have one…legit, not kidding. Is this recipe pretty close or am I going to be let down…just trying to prepare myself. Either way, mahalo.

Reply

Krista September 9, 2013 at 10:33 PM

haha… I tried it a couple of different ways. I think it comes pretty stinking close. Only difference being the fact its not fresh LOCAL ingredients from Maui. I hope you like it Mike.. from one fellow Mopsy lover to another. :) Mahalo
