Rum Mango Barbecue Sauce. A deliciously different barbecue sauce with tropical flavours that work incredibly well with chicken and pork.
I’ve been wanting to try this idea for a mango barbecue sauce for a while now so when we planned some simple juicy grilled pork chops for dinner last week and with some ripe mangoes on the counter top at the ready I decided to give it a shot. Boy was it ever good!
The sweet and tangy sauce with fragrant rum and spices was perfect with the thick juicy grilled pork chops that were simply marinated for just a half hour in garlic, lime juice and a pinch of cumin. If you’d rather not use the rum, some orange juice would make a good substitute.
I can’t wait to try it on chicken and maybe some grilled shrimp too.

You might also like:
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1 chopped white onion
- 3 cloves chopped garlic
- 2 very ripe mangoes , diced
- ½ cup rice vinegar
- 2 tbsp freshly grated ginger
- ½ cup rum
- ½ cup honey
- ½ tsp five spice powder
- ½ tsp cumin
- 1 tsp black pepper
- ½ tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp cayenne pepper (Optional or use more or less to taste)
In a medium saucepan heat over medium heat the olive oil. Add the onion and garlic.
Sauté together until the onions have softened but not browned.
Add this to a food processor along with the diced mangoes.
Puree together until very smooth. Add the puree back to the pot and add all of the remaining ingredients.
Simmer together very slowly over low heat stirring every few minutes until the sauce thickens naturally into a consistency that is easy able to be brushed on whatever you are grilling.
As you get nearer the end of the cooking time stir the sauce constantly to ensure it doesn't stick to the bottom of the pot. Store in mason jars or airtight containers.
