Pomegranate Balsamic Barbecue Sauce

Posted on 01 September 2017

Need a signature sauce for those summer barbecue parties? Then try our favorite BBQ sauce, it's finger-licking good!



  1. In a medium saucepan, heat olive oil and sauté the onions until softened but not browned.
  2. Add minced garlic and sauté until fragrant, 30-45 seconds.
  3. Add tomato paste and heat through, breaking it up as you stir, to cook out the raw tomato taste.
  4. Once the tomato paste has heated through, add Pomegranate Balsamic Vinegar and the water and bring the sauce to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  5. Reduce to a simmer and add Blue Agave Nectar, pomegranate molasses, Natural Irish Stout Beer Type Extract, Frank’s Hot Sauce, Worcestershire sauce, and whole grain mustard.
  6. Add brown sugar and stir until it is completely dissolved, then stir in grated ginger and salt.
  7. Allow the sauce to simmer for anywhere from 2-5 hours, until rich and thick.
  8. Coat the back of a spoon with the sauce and draw your finger through it. If the line doesn’t close up, the sauce is ready.
  9. To bring your barbecue together, grill whatever meat, poultry or seafood you have chosen, ensuring the proper internal temperature with an instant read thermometer.
  10. Once cooked, coat one side with the barbecue sauce and grill it, sauce side down, for 3 to 4 minutes, until the barbecue sauce begins to bubble.
  11. Slather the top side with barbecue sauce, turn it over, and grill for 3 or 4 minutes longer, again until the sauce begins to bubble. Watch carefully because sugar burns easily.
