Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce


This BBQ sauce is based off of the flavors from a traditional Vietnamese Sweet and Sour recipe given to me by an amazing chef named Duc in Hoi An, Vietnam.


First I made this pineapple and onion mix and sauteed it on medium for 10 minutes until the onions were soft and the pineapple was partially cooked. I used:
  • 1/4 red onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 cup pineapple, coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • green onion
I removed that from heat and started to mix together the base for my BBQ sauce.



I combined the following ingredients and mixed well.
  • 1 six ounce can tomato paste
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 3 TB soy sauce
  • 2 TB rice wine vinegar
  • 1 TB onion powder
  • 1 TB garlic powder
  • 1 TB toasted sesame oil
Then, I put the BBQ sauce base in my Vita-Mix with all but 1/2 cup of the pineapple onion mixture and blended it for 30 seconds or so.
