Do you know what happens when you combine Teriyaki Sauce and the flavors in barbecue sauce? In Lisa’s world, you end up with Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce. I was looking for something a little bit different for my chicken sandwich a few weeks ago. A sauce that was both tangy and fruity, and this delicious sauce was born…..

My plan was to create a simple and delicious Slow Cooker Hawaiian Barbecue Chicken Sandwich, and I did, but it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. This Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce however, was perfect! So I will share this fun sauce today, and I will continue working on the sandwich. 😉

How to make Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce:

Pour all ingredients into a medium sized saucepan…..

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes, until reduced by half. Make sure you stir the sauce occasionally so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. 😉

Serve immediately, or store in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week…..

This sauce is perfect for basting chicken and ribs on the grill, or mixing into shredded chicken.

When I combined the two recipes together, I cut back on the amount of brown sugar and left out the molasses. If your pineapple is not very sweet, you may need to up the brown sugar a bit. I liked the tangy, tart flavor, but it is definitely not as sweet as a traditional barbecue sauce.

This sauce is also not as thick as a barbecue sauce, but I really liked the way it turned out….and it doesn’t contain alcohol!! LOL

  1. Hi Lisa,

    BBQ season is here and this looks so tasty! I’m thinking this would be fantastic on pork, once my husband sets up the smoker.

    I noticed you’re using a stainless pot to make this in, do you think a nonstick pot would be ok? I know nonstick doesn’t fare too well with acidic things. Just worried about the pinapple or orange juice reacting.

    Cheers,
    Tara

    1. Hi Tara, all of my pans are stainless steel because I like using metal whisks and nonstick just doesn’t hold up to that kind of abuse. I’m not exactly sure how nonstick would work since I have never used them, sorry.
