Recipe: Kombucha BBQ Sauce

This savory marinade is a change from the tomato-based barbecue sauce you might be accustomed to. The subtle flavors of kombucha really bring out the best in the meat, and there is a bit of tenderizing action too!


  • 1 cup kombucha tea
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp. crushed red pepper


  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Mix thoroughly.
  2. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours prior to using, to allow the flavors to meld.
