"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."

  1. Combine the cider vinegar, apple cider, brown sugar, mustard seed, Dijon mustard, tomato paste, salt, black pepper, and neck bones in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat; simmer until the sauce thickens, 30 to 40 minutes. Skim any foam from the surface of the liquid and discard. Remove and discard the neck bones. Cool the sauce to room temperature or use immediately.



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 in...

I made this recipe, just used Horseradish mustard instead of Dijon. Turned out great! Wonderful on pulled pork!

Excellent Flavor.
