Recently we have been asked to try some Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce and tell you what we thought.
The other day (08.03.09), Susan and I grilled some chicken at the Fork You mansion, with the intent of trying a bottle of this out.
Thawing out some of what I’m sure are grain fed hormone injected chicken breasts from Sam’s Club, I decided to marinate them for a bit while I went for a bike ride. Besides I marinate about everything, especially if I’m going to grill it.
The main ingredient for this concoction was, of course, the star ingredient for the meal: none other than Country Bob’s sauce. First though I had to pour a dab on my finger and taste this magical stuff.
ummmm… quite tasty, tangy and sweet. I think I will like this stuff.
So I put the chicken in a bowl and placed about a 1/2 cup of the sauce on it. Now if you know me I like to mix and match marinades and my first default ingredient is …
You guessed it …. beer. Choosing a Sam Adams Black Lager, I poured about 1/2 the bottle into my bowl and added some pepper. Cutting back on added salt, I left that out. Then I grabbed a fork and poked holes all throughout the chicken breasts, then mixed it all around and shoved it back in the fridge to set for an hour or two away from the prying snout of our largest canine.
Firing up the grill, I placed these on the soon heated surface. Naturally I dribble some more Country Bob’s Sauce on them between flips. Susan also prepared some vegetable packets of zuchinni and yellow squash and home grown cherry tomatoes. Once the chicken was underway, I tossed these on also.
I leisurely cooked these, not keeping track of the time. Luckily today this resulted in perfectly cooked chicken and veggies.
After plating, I liberally doused my chicken breast with more of Country Bob’s sauce.
As I said, the sauce is tangy and sweet, it’s got a creamy feel. It’s very good. So good that you could call it A2. Saying that may ensure that I never recieve another bottle of Country Bob’s, which I will truly miss. But A1 is my favorite sauce. I wouldn’t use A1 on chicken, but Country Bob’s tasted really good. I’m interested in seeing how it tastes with pork and, of course, a nice grilled T-bone steak. (Confined range, grain fed, and hormonally injected of course!)
All joking aside, Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is very good, and I’m looking forward to trying it on a few more things. I’ll keep you posted.
Ron is definitely the grilling expert and he did a good job describing his carefree approach to marinading and cooking.
Country Bob put together a nice blend of ingredients to create a sauce that is both sweet and tangy. We used it in a way similar to a barbeque sauce, adding beer because…well…he adds beer to everything he cooks. The meal turned out great. Discussing the coulda, shoulda, wouldas we decided some crushed red pepper flake would have made it even better. Add some heat. We like spicy!
You’ll note on Country Bob’s website that a spicy version of the sauce is available, along with barbeque sauce and seasoning salt. A recipe page on the website includes dishes such as party mix, meatballs, and grilled onions.
