Sweet Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce (Huli Huli Sauce)

Sweet Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce (Huli Huli Sauce)

I wanted a sauce for our kalua pork dinner that wasn't as spicy as the sweet and spicy chili sauce I usually make because not everyone loves spicy like I do!  This Sweet Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce, also known as Huli Huli Sauce is the perfect mix of savory and sweet goodness.  I used the Huli Huli Chicken marinade recipe I have here on the blog as the base because it is sooooooooo delicious.  I switched out the chicken broth for some pineapple juice, cooked it down to reduce a little and voila!  The best Hawaiian BBQ sauce to use on pork, chicken, or whatever your heart desires.  This sauce is easy to whip up in just a few minutes with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.  Try it the next time you grill chicken or even just over your rice!  (It goes perfectly with this 3-ingredient slow cooker Kalua Pork!)

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup ketchup
  • 3/4 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (Use from a can of pineapple in a pinch!)
  • 1/2 tsp chicken bullion powder
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1-1/2 tsp minced garlic

  1. In a medium saucepan, whisk all ingredients together.
  2. Bring to a light boil over medium-high heat.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and let simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Let cool for 15 minutes, then drizzle over your meat!
