Mango Steak Sauce

It’s mango season in our house. That means we eat a fresh, cooled mango every single night, and usually fight over every last bite. With those mangos we don’t quite get to, our #1 go-to meal has been Mango Pulled Pork Sandwiches/Enchiladas. They are to-die-for. Ask anyone! Okay, well, anyone who has made them that is! I wanted to mix it up a little bit, so google came to my rescue with this Mango Steak Sauce. Hubbs prepared the steak to perfection, and I followed up his expertise with this delish topping. We gave the leftovers to our buds and can’t wait to hear the rave reviews! I think you could use this sauce to top any type of meat...pork, steak, or chicken.

2 tablespoons canola oil
2 cloves garlic, smashed
1 small red onion, chopped
1/2 cup orange juice
3 tablespoons honey
2 tablespoons chile powder
2 tablespoons maple syrup
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
2 very ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted and chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Heat the oil in a medium high-sided skillet over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and onions and cook until soft. Add the orange juice, honey, chile powder, maple syrup, mustard, Worcestershire and mangos and simmer until the mangoes are very soft and the mixture has thickened, about 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Scrape into a bowl and let cool to room temperature.

Makes 2 cups.
