Spicy Lee’s BBQ sauce

Like mentioned in the introduction to this post you can expect a BBQ sauce with a complex flavor pattern. However the Spicy Lee’s BBQ sauce has been made with a classic American style BBQ sauce base (think of the coke and ketchup) it’s flavored with some of the best Asian ingrediënts. Think about the soy sauce for the a punch of salt, Mirin seasoning for some extra sweetness, Sriracha for a subtle touch of garlic. But there’s more. The Kaffir lime leaves bring a nice refreshing touch while the cinnamon and star anise create a warming flavor profile that brings balance. Moreover the star anise goes perfect with pork meat, but we’ve tasted it on lamb too and in my opinion it was a match made in heaven. So you might want to try more than these options. I’m not sure but I guess chicken might work well too. That might be an option for a next project.
