This golden barbecue sauce is the perfect complement to smoked pork and its popularity is growing as more and more people turn away from those sticky-sweet tomato sauces that line the shelves of grocery stores. This sauce combines the mild heat of mustard with the tanginess of vinegar to give you something incredible.


  • 1 1/2 cups mustard
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Combine all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer uncovered on low heat for 30 minutes to slightly reduce. Make sure to stir the sauce often to prevent burning.

  3. Once cooked through, remove from heat and let the sauce cool to room temperature before using.

Storage Tips

  • If making ahead of time, cool completely, place into an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 1 week after preparation. The sauce can be stored in the same manner in the freezer for a few months.
