Are you tired of the same-old, same-old tomato based barbecue sauces? This Sweet, Sour, & Smoky Mustard BBQ Sauce is a nice change, and, although different, just as tasty on chicken, ribs, smoked brisket, meatballs, or sausages. The following recipe makes about four cups, which means four packets that can be in the freezer to use as needed.
While the list of ingredients is a little longer than in most recipes on this Quick Cooking Site, they are common ones that are most-likely already on the pantry shelves; all you need to do is measure them into a saucepan, whisk them together, and simmer them on the stove. Prep time is only about 15 minutes. The fact that the sauce is slowly simmered means little monitoring by the cook.
Restaurants specializing in BBQ usually offer several different BBQ sauces; while most of these sauces are tomato based (some sweet, some hot and spicy, some vinegary), the trend seems to be an additional sauce with a mustard base.
Sweet, Sour, & Smoky Mustard BBQ Sauce is a cut above those served in the BBQ restaurants, and will most likely become a favorite. Now's a good time to make it so you have it on hand when the grilling season is in full swing.
