With Labor Day around the corner, outdoor grilling days are growing short here in Michigan! To make the most of the ones you have left, why not consider adding this tasty, cannabis-infused barbeque sauce to your next cookout? It’s fun, easy, and a delicious way to add some extra sizzle to your grilling fun!
Please note: keep on eye on your delicacies all the way from prep to plate … cannabis should not be consumed by anyone under 21, so please make sure you practice safety to keep your adult treats out of the hands of children and non-partaking adults!
CANNABIS-INFUSED BARBEQUE SAUCE:
This is a great, all-purpose barbecue sauce that works with steak, chicken, ribs, even grilled vegetables. This recipe, shared on Medium.com, was adapted from Zamnesia’s original recipe.
- 10 g marijuana of choice, finely ground
- 1/3 cup vegetable oil
- 3/4 cup tomato paste
- ¼ cup water
- 1 clove minced garlic
- 3 TBSP finely chopped green onion
- 2 TBSP brown sugar
- 2 TBSP cider vinegar
- 2 TBSP worcestershire sauce
- 1 TBSP dijon mustard
- 1 TBSP honey
- 1 TBSP soy sauce
- ½ TBSP chili flakes or powder
- Pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 small lime, juiced
- Salt and pepper to taste
DIRECTIONS: Place your finely ground marijuana, oil, onions, and lime juice with a splash of water in your slow cooker pot (you can use a double boiler method on your stovetop if you don’t have a slow cooker). Cook on low for an hour and a half, stirring occasionally, making sure it doesn’t come to a boil.
After simmering for 90 minutes, stir in the rest of the ingredients, then turn the heat up to medium until the sauce begins to simmer gently. Cook for additional 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If the sauce isn’t as thick as you’d like, stir in small amounts of corn starch until completely incorporated, adding more as needed and stirring until your sauce reaches the desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste, and your sauce is done!
Store in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to two weeks. PLEASE make sure to label your container to prevent either kids or adults from accidental use!
TO USE: most people tolerate 2-3 tablespoons of sauce, but it will vary depending on the individual. Still, it’s a good rule of thumb when brushing sauce over your foods to grill. For anyone not comfortable with that amount, you can use less, or add regular barbeque sauce along with the cannabis sauce to those grilled items.
Remember to keep cannabis sauce items separate from regular sauce items to make sure no children or non-imbibing adults accidentally consume the cannabis sauce! It’s meant to be savored and enjoyed by adults who partake, so get your friends together, get grilling, and let the good times roll!
