Delicious. I've had mustard based bbq sauce before at pit style bbq restaurants, but never tried to make it myself before now. I let this simmer the full 30 minutes, whisking every few minutes keep it smooth. Tangy with a hint of sweet from the brown sugar, and thickened up perfectly to top sandwiches or to baste while grilling. Served this on leftover Carolina style pulled pork roast sandwiches with onion rolls. Already planning other things to make to go with this. Thanks for sharing. Update: equally great using Splenda and a teaspoon of blackstrap molasses to save on carbs.
Full disclosure: I have never had South Carolina bbq before. I live in California and am a devotee of Central Texas bbq. I smoked a couple of pork butts (dry rub, Austin style) yesterday but I can't eat my usual Rudy's Sause as I am attempting Atkins. On a whim, I made this in no time this morning with Splenda and ate it on my Central Texas pulled pork this morning. It was fantastic! Unorthodox, I know. Mixing Q styles, bad, I know. Delicious! So much so that I'm going to learn a little more about South Carolina bbq! Thanks for sharing this and opening my eyes to more ways of loving smoked meats.
Yep. Simple. Easy. Correct. Simplicity is the way we should cook. I cleaned the fridge a bit with mine, used honey Dijon, Bragg's organic cider vinegar, Clancy's special hot sauce, sambal olek, homemade dandelion honey versus the brown sugar. Came out PERFECT. This has the right proportions of ingredients so you can play. Bravo.
This is real S Carolina sauce. The ratio of mustard to vinegar is authentic. The Carolinas were settled mostly by Germans who often disliked tomatoes. Since vinegar and mustard are intregal flavor in many German dishes, Carolinas unique sauces were born
Awful! Inresearching other recipes, I found that the vinegar/mustard ration was wrong. It should be 1/4 cup vinegar, NOT 3/4 cup! I ruined a whole batch but will try again with the corrected recipe.
Five Star because its tough to find a decent Vinegar based Mustard sauce. This is good basic and you can Tweek it to suit your own tastes. I have a better one but it has about ten times the Butter thats in this one and it is SO unhealthy. One Hint - -Boil the Vinegar separately before adding other ingredients and it will tone down the Vinegar taste. Thanks for the recipe, it does qualify as SOUTH Carolina Sauce.
Its satisfactory nothing special. Leave out the hot sauce and add a little red pepper flakes.
Omg..... best sauce ever. My boyfriend loves it... it is now in my recipe book... thank you for it...
This was a delicious sauce recipe, though I like mine a bit sweeter so I added some extra brown sugar. I paired it with some savory mashed sweet potatoes and pulled pork.
One of my new favorites! So easy and yum, yum, yum!
