With barbecue season fast approaching here in Australia and the temperatures beginning to rise, what better time to share some of our original recipes using none other than our fermented hot sauce. Take a look below and take your barbecue game to the next level.
Habanero & Mango Roja-Glazed Ribs
Imagine this: You're outdoors, the sun is shining, and the aroma of ribs sizzling on the grill wafts through the air. These aren't just any ribs; they're succulent, fall-off-the-bone tender, and they're about to be glazed with our mouthwatering Habanero & Mango Roja hot sauce.
- Ribs to Perfection: To achieve that melt-in-your-mouth tenderness, slow-cook your ribs with care. Start by seasoning them generously with your favorite BBQ rub. Then, set up your grill for indirect cooking and smoke the ribs using hickory or applewood chips for that signature smoky flavor. The key here is patience; low and slow is the name of the game.
- The Glaze: About 30 minutes before your ribs are ready, it's time to work your magic with the glaze. Our Habanero & Mango Roja hot sauce, with its perfect balance of habanero heat and tropical mango sweetness, is the star here. Mix the sauce with a bit of honey and a splash of apple cider vinegar to create a glaze that's sweet, tangy, and fiery.
- Brush and Sizzle: Brush your glaze generously over the ribs as they finish cooking. The heat will caramelize the sugars in the sauce, creating a mouthwatering, sticky exterior that's bursting with flavor. Repeat this step a couple of times for maximum deliciousness.
- Serve with a Side: As you take the ribs off the grill, let them rest for a few minutes before slicing. Serve with your favorite sides – perhaps some coleslaw and grilled corn – and get ready for a flavor explosion that'll have your guests begging for more.
Jalapeño & Pineapple Verde Grilled Chicken
Get ready for a BBQ flavor journey with a tropical twist! Our Jalapeño & Pineapple Verde hot sauce takes grilled chicken to a whole new level.
- Marinating Magic: The secret here is in the marinade. Combine the Jalapeño & Pineapple Verde hot sauce with minced garlic, fresh lime juice, and a touch of olive oil. Let your chicken pieces soak in this zesty concoction for at least an hour (or longer if you have the time). The jalapeño heat and pineapple tang will infuse every inch of the chicken with flavor.
- Perfect Grilling: Preheat your grill to medium-high heat. As you grill the marinated chicken, baste it with some extra sauce for that extra kick of flavor. The sugars in the sauce will create a beautiful caramelized finish on the chicken.
- Serve Fresh: Once the chicken is cooked through and has those gorgeous grill marks, serve it hot. Garnish with fresh cilantro and lime wedges to enhance the citrusy notes of the sauce. It's a dish that's as visually appealing as it is delicious.
Tamarind Gold Pulled Pork Sliders
Introducing our newest creation: Tamarind Gold. This smoky and sweet sauce is perfect for pulled pork sliders that'll steal the show at any BBQ gathering.
- Pulled Pork Perfection: To make the most succulent pulled pork, start with a pork shoulder or butt roast. Season it generously with a blend of salt, pepper, paprika, and brown sugar. For an extra layer of flavor, add some smoked paprika or cumin.
- Low and Slow: The key to tender pulled pork is cooking it low and slow. Set your grill or smoker to a low temperature (around 110°C), and let the pork roast for several hours. As the meat smokes, it absorbs the smoky goodness that makes BBQ so irresistible.
- Tamarind Gold Finish: About an hour before your pork is done, brush it with our Tamarind Gold hot sauce. This sauce, a blend of our Roja and Tamarind, offers a rich and smoky flavor with a hint of sweet & sour. It's the perfect complement to smoky pulled pork.
- Slider Assembly: Once the pork is tender and has reached that perfect "pull-apart" consistency, shred it using forks. Serve the pulled pork on slider buns with a drizzle of Tamarind Gold sauce. The smokiness of the pork paired with the sweet and tangy sauce creates a harmonious blend of flavors that will have everyone reaching for seconds.
