Country Bob's contacted me a couple of weeks ago asking if I would try their product. I'm game for just about anything so I said yes. I even told them I would try coming up with a recipe using their All Purpose Sauce. Now everyone that follows my recipes know that I cook simple dishes and I didn't want to change my style. One of the best ways to create a recipe with a new product is to taste the product before adding it to anything. One of the 1st recipes that came to mind after tasting was the baked beans my daughter makes. I just knew it would be a perfect blend and it is. To my daughter's original recipe I added bell peppers, which I love in baked beans, and eliminated the brown sugar. Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce gave the beans a touch of tart, with a hint of BBQ. They can be served as a meal, due to the ground beef, or as a side dish. I'm having them tonight with Baby Back Ribs and plan to serve the sauce on the side for dipping.
I've only been working with this sauce for a few days but have already found that it's great mixed with sauteed onions served over roast. I've also used it as a condiment in my baked chicken wraps.
