Steven Raichlen uses guava paste and rum in this sensational, sticky sauce—flavors inspired by his hometown of Miami. It’s delicious slathered on Raichlen’s Chinese-Style Ribs. Slideshow: Great Barbecue Sauces

How to Make It

Step

In a small saucepan, combine the guava paste with the vinegar, rum, tomato paste, lime juice, soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, ginger, scallion, garlic and water and bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1 1/4 cups, about 15 minutes. Season the sauce with salt and pepper.

Chef's Notes

Guava paste is usually sold in flat metal cans. It is available at many supermarkets as well as at Latin markets.
