I’ve recently found that tomatoes and tomato-based sauces bother my stomach so I’ve been searching for alternatives, especially since my favorite foods are ribs and wings. Here’s one that’s very tasty and easy to make. I used a jar of dill pickle mustard that I had in my cupboard and wow, that a great taste! Only takes a couple of minutes to mix and can be frozen if you don’t use it all. I made a batch of chicken wings with it.
In a small bowl (about 2 cups) combine:
1/2 cup mustard – any mustard will work – I’ve used the dill pickle mustard as well as my usual stone ground and both made very delicious sauce
1/4 cup honey (date sugar, coconut or agave nectar, maple or date syrup would also work)
1/4 cup avocado oil
1/4 cup white vinegar (rice or apple cider vinegar would also work)
1 small can green chilis (about a 4-ounce size; I used mild but feel free to use a hotter variety if your family likes them)
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Using an immersion blender, blend until smooth. Brush on ribs or wings or serve on the side once the meat is cooked. Makes about 1 3/4 cups of sauce. If you don’t have an immersion blender, use a regular blender.
I brushed the sauce on the wings before baking them for 40 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
