The combination of mustard and molasses gives barbecued meats a sweet and sour flavor. While this is intended for pork this sauce can be used on chicken and beef as well. Don't be afraid to experiment.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (240 mL) prepared mustard
  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) molasses
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) cider vinegar
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) honey
  • 1 tablespoon (15 mL) oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) powdered oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) powdered thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon (2.5 mL) cayenne (optional)
  • pinch of salt

Steps to Make It

  1. Combine dry ingredients in a saucepan. Add enough vinegar to make a mixable paste. Mix well.

  2. Place over high heat and add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  3. Remove from heat and let the sauce cool completely before using.

If making ahead of time, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. The sauce becomes more flavorful after a day or two.
