"A friend gave me this recipe some years ago for a vinegar-based sauce with mustard seed. You can use smoked pork neck bones in place of ham hocks if available." — go_vikes

I scaled the recipe down to 6 servings as it is just the two of us. I followed the exact recipeand was a little concerned after tasting it when done reducing the sauce. I didn't find it super interesting. A big however, I was wrong! I did not use the sauce as a "mop" but rather a marinade for b/s chicken breasts. Marinated for about 8 hrs and then my husband grilled on our charcoal Weber. Tender, juicy and flavorful. My husband said he liked it as an alternative to Sweet Baby Ray's. We will definitely be having this sauce again. Thank you, go_vikes!
