I love doing food and food product reviews. I always seem to find something good to try that even my "picky" family likes to eat. They may not think so at first, but I have yet to find something they don't like and The Original County Bob's All Purpose Sauce was definitely a winner here.
I loved that their website, Country Bob's Online, had quite a few recipes to get you started. I also love that County Bob took years to perfect his sauce - it wasn't until 1968 that he had that "eureka" moment and just knew this was HIS dream sauce.
The company became a company in October of 1982 after selling his sauce to family and friends and seekers of a good sauce to go with all kinds of meals for about 5 years. The sauce he created back in 1968 is still the sauce that is sold today. They have added to their products with BBQ sauce and Seasoning salts, but the tried and true All Purpose Sauce still remains today - and in my opinion will be available for sale for many many years to come.
I've used this sauce for chicken and pork dishes and the other day for a stove-top meat patty - not quite a hamburger, not quite a meatloaf that I threw together at the last minute (yes I was running late) with rice. Hubby thought this was great! It gave the patties with the onions a little bit of a smoky caramel taste but not really sweet. I hope that makes sense - it was a really nice taste with the beef.
I have to say I will be looking for more of this sauce so that I can try more of those recipes on their website, as well as trying it on/in/with more of my own creations. I'm thinking about a meatloaf right now that I think would be AWESOME.
One of the things I really liked about this sauce is that it was a good compliment to all the meats I used it on/with. You didn't just taste the sauce, like you can with some others, it wasn't overpowering. Just the right balance has been created with this sauce, that I bet you will like too.
