Recipe: Quick and Easy Mustard Sauce

There is a BBQ joint near where I live. They specialize in Louisiana style comfort food and BBQ. The quality of the food is up and down, but what is always a standout is their sauce selection. I tried to duplicate one of their sauces tonight, but missed the mark by a great deal.

Fortunately, although it wasn’t what I was aiming for, it was still pretty good. So here is a quick, easy mustard sauce recipe that uses lots of shortcuts.

1 bottle of Raspberry Vinaigrette salad dressing (found at any grocery store)
A like amount of yellow mustard
Assuming that this makes 2 cups of liquid, add:
2 tablespoons hot sauce (I used Bull Snort)
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
4 tablespoons lemonade mix (I used Country Time)

Simmer for 30 minutes.

I used it on pulled pork. Interesting taste. Easy to make. I’m going to modify the sauce a bit and try it again in a few weeks. I’d like a stronger citrus and raspberry flavor.
