    Rhubarbecue Sauce

    I found this sauce recipe, I have NOT TRIED IT.

    It can be used with Pork, Chicken, Spareribs, Meatloaf, Stews, Hamburgers - anywhere you would use ketchup or barbecue sauce. It will keep in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about one week and will keep in the freezer for up to one month. Once you try it though, I'd be surprised if it lasts that long.

    • 2 cups chopped rhubarb
    • 1 cup ketchup
    • 1/2 cup water
    • 1 onion, chopped
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
    • 2 Tbsp. Dijon mustard
    • 1 Tbsp. cider vinegar
    • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
    • 1/4 tsp. salt
    • 1/4 tsp. hot pepper sauce

    In a large saucepan, bring all ingredients to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring often, until rhubarb is tender, about 20 minutes. Transfer to blender or food processor; puree until smooth. Let cool.

    Rhubarbecued Pork or Chicken


    • 4 thick (1/2") pork loin center-cut chops (1 1/2 pounds) or 2 pounds skinless chicken pieces
    • 1/4 tsp. each salt and pepper
    • Rhubarbecue Sauce
    • vegetable oil
    Sprinkle pork or chicken with salt and pepper. Barbecue or roast as directed below or until juices run clear when pork or chicken is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside pork.

    To Barbecue:
    Place on greased grill over medium heat; close lid and grill, turning once, for about 10 minutes for pork or 35 minutes for chicken. Mix 1/2 cup Rhubarbecue Sauce with 2 teaspoons oil; brush over pork or chicken during last 1 to 2 minutes of cooking.

    To Oven Barbecue:
    In a large ovenproof skillet, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat; brown pork or chicken, in batches if necessary. Drain off any fat. Mix 1 cup Rhubarbecue Sauce with 1/2 cup water; pour over pork or chicken. Bake in 375 degree F oven for 20 minutes for pork or 35 minutes for chicken.

    I was wondering what to do with all that rubarb. Now I know. Neighbors and family will get jars too. Does anyone see anything wrong with canning this stuff?
