Traina Foods has gotten quite saucy! No really, like as in BBQ sauce! The company, known for its California sun dried fruits, recently dipped into the world of BBQ with the introduction of two dried fruit flavor-driven sauces that are gluten-free and made without high-fructose corn syrup.
Traina Foods’ Sun Dried Apricot BBQ sauce features real tomatoes and tree-ripened apricots from their family farm to produce a sweet-yet-bold flavor that is complementary to beef, pork, chicken, fish, tofu and vegetables dishes. Whether carnivore or plant-forward dieter, anyone can enjoy this flavorful sauce. A perfect meal for summer, Traina Foods Grilled Chicken Sun Dried Apricot Skewers can be drizzled with a little Sun Dried Apricot BBQ sauce after cooking for a kicked up apricot flavor. Another fun family friendly dinner is Traina Foods Apricot BBQ Pork Tot-chos:
- Oven-baked tater tots
- Pre-cooked pulled pork mixed with Traina Foods Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce
- Shredded cheese
- Black or refried beans
- Black olives
- Green onions
- Sour cream
- Additional Traina Foods Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce
- In an ovenproof dish or larger casserole pan, layer cooked tater tots, pork, beans and cheese.
- Bake until cheese is melty and bubbly.
- Remove from oven and add toppings of choice from above (or any other desired toppings).
- Drizzled with Traina Foods Sun Dried Apricot BBQ Sauce and/or sour cream and serve. This can be made in any amount as desired – get creative!
Traina Foods Sun Dried Plum BBQ Sauce combines a balanced blend of tart-sweet notes from tree-ripened plums, and savory tomatoes and herbs. Versatile like the Sun Dried Apricot variety, it can be used as a marinade or basting sauce for beef, chicken pork, fish, tofu and vegetables as well. The plum flavoring works well with a number of Asian-inspired dishes such as Chinese spareribs, or meatballs. Traina Foods shares this simple recipe for Easy Peasy Crockpot Plum Meatballs:
- 1 pound pre-made beef or turkey meatballs
- 1 cup Traina Foods Sun Dried Plum BBQ Sauce
- 3 teaspoons soy sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon ginger
- 1/4 cup water
- 1 teaspoon white pepper
- In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except the meatballs; mix well.
- Place the meatballs in the slow cooker and cover them with the liquid mixture.
- Cook on low for three to four hours.
- Serve with sticky rice or Asian rice noodles for a meal that practically makes itself!
