Secret Finishing Sauce

by Chris Schlesinger

Treat your pork right...


  • 1 tsp. ground achiote seed (or you may substitute paprika)
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 2 Tbsp. balsamic vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. molasses
  • 1 Tbs. chopped fresh oregano
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice (about 1 lime)
  • salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste
Secret Finishing Sauce

Combine all the sauce ingredients in a saucepan, bring to a boil, and simmer over low heat for five minutes.

Remove the sauce from the heat. Just before your meat comes off the grill, hit it with your secret sauce.

Any sauce that you don’t use for your barbeque will keep, covered in the refrigerator, for about two weeks.
