Crazy Orange Turtle’s gluten free BBQ sauce recipe

gluten free bbq sauce

Today both myself and my other half had a craving for sloppy joes. These are a once or twice a year treat in my house, and they are always made with super lean turkey or chicken, not ground beef. The problem: I need a gluten free BBQ sauce to make my sandwiches. have never enjoyed the canned sloppy joe sauce, and always made my own BBQ type sauce for the dish. The problem was that my recipe contained not one, not two, but three gluten containing ingredients! I needed a new recipe fast. I have only just begun my gluten free journey, and the few books I bought about gluten free diets didn’t contain a recipe for anything remotely similar to a BBQ sauce. So, I winged it. It was the best sloppy joe sauce ever! I served my better half the sloppy joe on a homemade roll , but I had mine without bread. Not because I couldn’t make my own gluten free roll, but because I really wasn’t hungry enough for all of those carbohydrates. I am definitely going to be making this recipe to top chicken, steak, ribs and anything else that I might like to put BBQ sauce on in the future. Very good, but the recipe is technically a little ordinary — its very good but nothing fancy! So it can’t be a perfect 10. As you are aware, 10 is reserved for the spectacular recipes — or chocolate.
