Bring to a low boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes. Using a hand immersion blender, blend until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the sauce to a food processor or blender and puree until smooth.

  • Serve by itself or with hamburger buns or tortillas.

Notes

A sweet and fruity barbecue pork that leaves you sitting light, not heavy. I would not recommend using the store-bought Hawaiian buns as they turned soggy almost immediately from the sauce. You can also refer to the original recipe for a citrusy coleslaw that is a good accompaniment to the pork.
