Recipe by Amber
"One of the best slathers for ribs and ham. Its exotic fruitiness goes well with chicken, turkey, duck and even game. Guava paste is much beloved by Cuban Americans, Puerto Ricans, and South Americans too!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

apple cider vinegar
fresh lemon juice
minced fresh ginger root
scotch bonnet chile pepper (or to taste), minced
kosher salt and pepper to taste
Very delicious. Very easy to make. I added a little more liquid, but that was the only chage. This recipe is very flavorful. Would be delicious on just about any type of protein, maybe even tofu, why not?
YUM YUM YUM
Followed the recipe almost exactly - used ground ginger instead of fresh and sriraccha instead of the pepper which I didn't have. Delicious!! It is a bit sweet, but I prefer sweet BBQ sauce.
This is a very nice, very fruity BBQ sauce. We found this recipe reminding us of Jamaica, and that's a good thing! I followed the recipe as written, except I used Scotch Bonnet pepper powder instead of an actual pepper. I used 1/2 teaspoon. To make this again, I think I would like even more kick, so I would add more powder, maybe a whole teaspoon. I think that would balance a little nicer with the sweetness. I used this on ribs, but I think it would really be excellent on chicken.
This was delicious! It was quite a bit sweeter than I expected, but I might have put in more guava paste than the recipe called for. I used 2T molasses and 2T pineapple juice in place of the dark rum and in place of the chili pepper I just put in a couple shakes of hot sauce (yes, not very authentic but it's what I had). I poured it over some boneless chicken thighs and cooked it in the oven at 350 for 30 min. The sauce tasted great with mashed potatoes too.
I really love this guava barbecue sauce that a local Cuban restaurant makes (that sadly went out of business). So when I saw this, I was so excited! This sauce was a great barbecue sauce, but mine did not turn out with as much guava flavor as I would have liked. My kids LOVED it. We used it on barbecued chicken. I made this recipe exactly the way it tells it to be except I omitted the chile (kids) and added more guava. Next time I make this, I will add less tomato paste and see if it's closer to what I was looking for.
