Being a relatively new blogger you know I was super excited to be offered my first product to share with my readers. And for it to be a great product that appeals to everyone was even more wonderful.
The label on the Original Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is colorful and informative. The sauce is gluten free and has no products or byproducts that (I am fairly certain) vegetarians or vegans will object to.
Ingredients: Tomato concentrate, (tomato paste and water), vinegar, corn syrup, sugar, molasses, salt, onion powder, caramel color, garlic powder, tamarind, corn starch, natural flavors, and other spices.
So even though many people think of this as a Barbequing or Meat Flavoring sauce, Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is a tasty addition to vegetarian meals as well. There are many recipes available to you on the Country Bob’s website, including a variation on Chex Party Mix.
However – I did use my sample bottle of Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce on meat – pork to be specific. Generally I prefer meat that is cooked on a grill, but in early March in Wisconsin, if the temperatures are not a bit nippy, the wind makes grilling outdoors a challenge. I wanted to do this right. So here is a picture to prove to you that I did indeed make the chops myself.
Two of the chops I had marinated in the sauce beforehand, and two I lightly drizzled with sauce, just in case the flavor was too intense for me. Tasting it straight from the bottle I found it to be sweet and tangy.
Well, I had nothing to be worried about. Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce added something special to the meat and I did dip the less treated portions into more sauce during the meal.
We ate our delicious meal too quickly for me to get an actual picture of presentation,
but imagine it to look something like this
except I made steak fries and frozen, bagged green beans.
But it was delicious and there were no leftovers.
There was one comment that next time we should try the Country Bob’s Spicy All Purpose Sauce.
