Ok people, I must confess, I am a bit of a bbq sauce snob. I have several favorite recipes, all take a ton of ingredients and time to simmer.
Tonight, I found myself in a pinch. I was making grilled pork chops, quickie dinner for the kids, and planned on using my usual Sweet Baby Rays brown sugar bottled sauce. Gah, I was out! So I hit up Google to find a quick, sweeter sauce, which is my preference.
I hit on this gem. I didn't have high hopes, despite the reviews, because I have faith in the sauces and methods I have used in the past. The only substitution I made was apple cider vingar instead of red wine; partially because I was out of the red, also because I prefer the apple cider vinegar in a sauce to be used with pork. I added a bit of granulated garlic, for personal preference. And I also went a bit light on the ground mustard, as the container was almost empty and I didn't even realize it!
Like others, I let it simmer for a bit. It tasted quite decent raw, but the flavors really need some heat to gel. Once it finished, it was amazing! I prefer a sweet sauce, so this was right up my alley. Those that don't, just decrease the brown sugar. I used Sriracha for the hot sauce, and a few extra squirts of it. It gives a fantastic background heat, mild but there, that sneaks up on you.
Try this one ! Tweek to your tastes if needed, but is fantastic as is! Thank you for posting!
