Rhubarbecue Sauce

I love this sauce. 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

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.

I first thought that title was a typo, then soon realized it was not. I think it is a little late for rhubarb to be eaten here and I did not freeze anyway, but it sounds like an intriguing recipe.
