RECIPE: Vinegar Sauce

Vinegar Sauces are popular in the Carolinas and go great with pork. I actually prefer the vinegar based sauces as they tend to bring out the flavor of the meat as opposed to other sauces that add to the flavor.

Here is a basic sauce that you can try and then extrapolate from:

Basic Vinegar Sauce

1.5 cups apple cider vinegar
.5 cup hot water
.5 cup vegetable oil
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons dry mustard
2 teaspoons red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper

Stir the brown sugar into the hot water until it is dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20 minutes.
