Hawaiian Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce Recipe + Free Printable
The BBQ doesn't have to end just because it's the tail end of summer! There are still football games and tailgating parties needing tasty BBQ. I love this Hawaiian Sweet and Sour BBQ Sauce because no matter what time of year it is, you'll always feel like you're at a luau.
This sauce goes great on all types of meat (fish, chicken, pork, beef) and you can always add spice (chili pepper flakes) to it if you want. I'm not a big spicy person – I have more of a sweet tooth to be honest, so I always lean towards a fruity concoction. Either way, you'll love this recipe.
Total cook time: 20 minutes.
Supplies & Ingredients
- OL892 (3" x 1.5" oval labels) and OL5375 (2" circle labels)
- Free jar label template and Free lid label template
- Jar(s) for the completed sauce
- 1 small can of pineapple juice – 6oz.
- 1/2 cup of packed brown sugar
- 1/2 can of crushed pineapple in pineapple juice
- 3/4 cup of ketchup
- Salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp of garlic (I like chopped garlic cloves, but you could use minced garlic or garlic powder.)
- 2 tbsp of Worcestershire sauce.
- 1 tbsp cornstarch
- 1 tbsp water
- Chili pepper flakes to taste (optional)
Add all ingredients (except for the corn starch and water) to a medium pot. Bring the sauce to a boil then reduce to a simmer for 10-15 minutes.
Mix together the cornstarch and water and then slowly add to the sauce to your desired thickness.
While the sauce is cooling, apply your printed labels. I bought these self-sealable glass jars at Hobby Lobby.
Pour the BBQ sauce in the jars.
These jars make fun hostess gifts or party favors (especially luaus), and they're a cool way to present your favorite BBQ sauce when guests come over or when you go tailgating. Enjoy and let me know what you think!
