Ingredients

3 Tbsp
vegetable oil
2
yellow onions, chopped
8 oz
guava paste, cut into chunks
2 Tbsp
tomato paste
2 Tbsp
apple cider vinegar
1/4 c
brown sugar
2
whole star anise
1/2 tsp
ground allspice
1/2 tsp
curry powder
2 Tbsp
lime juice
1 Tbsp
dark rum

Step-By-Step

1Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Reduce the heat to medium and add the onion, cooking until it's soft and a little brown around the edges, about 5 to 7 minutes, stirring often.
2Stir in the guava paste, tomato paste, vinegar, brown sugar, star anise, allspice, and curry powder. Simmer until the guava paste has melted, about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
3Turn off the heat and let the sauce cool slightly.
4Discard the star anise; transfer the mixture to your blender and puree. With the motor running add the lime juice and rum. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside, or refrigerate for up to 2 weeks.
