In years past, half of the great recipes started by cooking bacon. This mustard based barbecue sauce is loaded with flavor and is perfect for so many things. It provides a strong mustard flavor, with a touch of heat, and enough sweet to make it stand out. This is a perfect sauce for pulled pork, but also great on burgers.


  • 2 slices bacon
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup (180 mL) prepared yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) honey
  • 3 tablespoons (45 mL) ketchup
  • 2 tablespoons (30 mL) cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) ground cumin

Steps to Make It

1. Cook bacon in a medium skillet until nearly crisp.

2. Remove bacon and chop finely.
