But it took a while for it to get to me. About 5 months ago, I was contacted by the company to do a product review. I'd just moved, and you know how little kids are afraid Santa won't find your house...because you're spending it at Grandma's? I felt the same way. My package never arrived.
I was sad, seeing others review the sauce. Seeing the saucy brown nectar, being dribbled over chicken, fries and steak...just as advertised on the bottle made me feel empty inside.
After another email exchange, I finally got my package!
The sauce starts out like ketchup then gradually upgrades to a BBQ-esque sauce with sweet undertones. It's slightly spicy, a little tangy, and reminds me of Heinz 57 with more molasses, brown sugar, and tamarind.
I won't regale you the story of Country Bob, where he originated or his product claims. Many a blogger hath tread this path before me. You can click below and hear (OK, read...) what a few other's have to say about Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce.
Cooking With Anne
I will say that after doing a furtive search, the closest Country Bob's retailer is a Wal-Mart...50 miles away. But the Web site has a store where you can order the sauce. That's what I plan on doing when the last of the 2nd bottle has been poured out.
First, I put it on cornmeal crusted fries.
Then a oven roasted chicken sandwich.
Country ribs for Country Bob.
Accompanied with pan-fried corn & peas and buttermilk mashed potatoes.
Yesterday, made pasta dough, shredded the ribs, added peas and bleu cheese to make ravioli. I got some sage from a neighbor and made a sage beurre blanc, too.
Needless to say, Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce is good. If you want the recipes for any of the above things, just email me at nicolettemiller [at] hotmail DOT com.
