Barbecue Sauce Help Please....

Recommended Posts

Lately I have been having a lot of trouble when eating tomatoes. Hopefully this is just a temporary thing, but in the meantime I'm missing being able to have BBQ chicken and such.

Can anyone suggest a gluten free and tomato free BBQ sauce? Or a recipe for a gluten free / tomato free BBQ sauce?

Thanks!

You could marinate the chicken in a safe Italian salad dressing (Kraft will clearly list gluten) and then grill. It's very good that way :)

When I needed a marinade I did an internet seach for "chicken marinade". There are many receipes on the internet to choose from. I ended up with a lemon, olive oil and garlic marinade.

Hope you can locate one you like.

Hmm... Thanks for the responses. :)

I have plenty of marinades to choose from. What I was hoping to find was something more like a classic barbecue sauce, but without the tomatoes. I have done internet searches, but have not found anything yet like it. I think I will try experimenting with a few things and see what I can come up with.

Thank you!

Maybe puree some raw red pepper? It's very sweet, actually, and might be an ok replacement for ketchup.

If it is just the acid in the tomatoes, try making bbq sauce with yellow tomatoes.

gluten-free Soy sauce, lemon and or lime juice, pureed fruit (apple, pear etc.) is a good base to add to.

We posted quite a few the other week so do a search on the forum.

Why not plums to replace the tomatoes. I used to make a plum bbq sauce, plums, onions, garlic, vinegar, brown sugar. Oh and it is a cooked sauce, just cook on low until it is the thickness you want and strain or not.

Apricots or peaches make a nice sauce too but with different qualities then the plum of course.

Someone on the Delphi forum posted this recipe for No Tomato Tomato Sauce, you could use it as a base and add BBQ sauce ingredients to it.

1 1/2 cups steamed carrots

1/3 cup steamed beets

2/3 cup water

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 1/2 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon basil

1/2 teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon oregano

3/4 cup chopped, cooked onions (or dried flake)

1 clove minced garlic

Steam carrots and beets until tender (or use baby food). Brown onion and garlic together. Measure all ingredients into a blender until smooth. Add cooked ground meat or meatballs for spaghetti sauce. Or use as is for pizza sauce. Omit basil for chili and use as you would normally. This freezes nicely in a canning jar or freezer bag. Remember to allow about an inch at the top and tighten jar lid after sauce freezes. The sauce is better if it is make the day before and allowed to mellow.

I'm not sure where you live but you could grow them. Of course I am assuming you have a place to grow them, sorry. I buy tomato plants and have grown them in pots before.

Farmers markets in the summer is your best place to find them. Or some of the gourmet type grocery stores carry them but out of season they are spendy.

Thank you so much!! I am sensitive to an enzime in tomatoes and now finding out we are allergic to garlic we have to make everything from scratch. This helps me a bunch. :D


Whole family is allergic to Gluten, eggs, dairy, most are allergic to garlic. Few other various allergies.

Did you know it's best to wait until 21 months to give a baby wheat??

You're welcome. The woman who originally posted this recipe has suggested that if you add vinegar and some brown sugar to balance it, that it should make a nice bbq sauce.

Mistilyn,

You can find tomato free BBQ sauce and ketchup on this site here. Just click on the menu at the left and find condiments. On the second page there are items by NO-Mato. This should be what you want.

Best of luck in your search. If you find something you like please let me know. I understand the frustration. I can't eat tomatoes or peppers. It would be nice to have some kind of BBQ sauce that's within the same range as the traditional tomatoey ones, but I can't see it happening. Sorry guys, but marinades aren't the same thing as a nice gooey BBQ sauce. Fruit based sauces tend to be too sweet and be a whole different experience.

The best option I've come up with is orange juice, gluten-free soy sauce, honey and garlic. I've taken to marinading the chicken in it, then once I pop the chicken in the over or on the grill I reduce the remaining marinade by at least half until it's got a thicker consistency to it. Then I brush it on the chicken a couple times while it's cooking. It's not perfect, but it's an option.

By the way, tomatoes and peppers belong to the same nightshade group so there's a chance that peppers will bother you as well. And tomatoes are tomatoes no matter what the color. If it's an allergy issue the color of it or the type won't matter.
