    I could see how this would be a good sauce over pulled pork once combined with the smokiness of the pork. I simmered this sauce for an hour and it was still very runny. It is a little too sweet/vinegary for my taste. Like Kelly says in the sauce description, I feel like it would be much better with some premade barbeque sauce mixed in.  -  04 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I was looking for a mustard based sauce for meat pockets, I believe i just found the perfect one. Thank you  -  16 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I scaled way back on this recipe but made as written. I too felt it was too sweet. Mine wasn't too awful thin but just too sweet. If I were to make this again I would cut back on the honey and molasses and leave out the syrup entirely. This has potential and reminds me of a Kansas City style bbq sauce which are my favorite.  -  02 Jun 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
