Guava Barbeque Sauce

Amber

"One of the best slathers for ribs and ham. Its exotic fruitiness goes well with chicken, turkey, duck and even game. Guava paste is much beloved by Cuban Americans, Puerto Ricans, and South Americans too!"

  1. Place the water, guava paste, vinegar, rum, tomato paste, lemon juice, onion, ginger, soy sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, and scotch bonnet pepper into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat, whisking until evenly blended. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until the sauce has slightly thickened and is richly flavored, 10 to 15 minutes. The sauce should be pourable. If it has become too thick, thin it with some water. Serve hot or cold.

Followed the recipe almost exactly - used ground ginger instead of fresh and sriraccha instead of the pepper which I didn't have. Delicious!! It is a bit sweet, but I prefer sweet BBQ sauce.

So good, followed the recipe exactly except for I could not find a scotch bonnet pepper so I threw in a jalapeno and it had a little kick. Also I probably put a lot more guava paste than the rec...

I made it to put on country ribs last night. My hubby and I loved this sauce! I did not have a fresh scotch bonnet pepper, but I did have scotch bonnet pepper sauce, so I used some of that in it...

This is a very nice, very fruity BBQ sauce. We found this recipe reminding us of Jamaica, and that's a good thing! I followed the recipe as written, except I used Scotch Bonnet pepper powder ...
