Review: Country Chef Mustard Grilling Sauce

[tweetmeme source=”brownkw” only_single=false]

As you may recall, I recently reviewed two of the six sauces in the Country Chef Grilling Sauce line.  Today’s review is the third sauce in the Country Chef Grilling Sauce line — mustard.

To refresh you, Country Chef Grilling Sauces are the brainchild of Mike Espey.  They are heart-healthy sauces with no high fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors or colors, or MSG.

Naked Observations

Looking at the packaging, the jar gives me that home-made impression.  The initial scent reinforces the freshness portrayed in the packaging.  The sauce pours out thick, and the texture is uneven with the fresh ingredients that are used.  It is a golden color.

When taking a taste, the theme for this sauce is very similar to the other 2 sauces I’ve tried — an emphasis in fresh ingredients.  There was a flavor of mustard on the back end, but it was more of a sweet honey mustard flavor rather than a traditional mustard.

To the Meat of the Matter

For this test run, I decided to use the sauce as a condiment on a pulled pork sandwich.  The pulled pork was courtesy of a company BBQ.

Like the other Country Chef Grilling Sauces I’ve reviewed, the mustard sauce does not add an extraordinary amount of flavor.  However, it brings out the other flavors that are present in the pork while making it all seem just a bit more fresh!  The mustard flavor was just barely noticeable, but not in a bad way.

I could not find a website for Country Chef Grilling Sauce, but they do have a presence on Facebook.
