Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce Review and Giveaway
My family had the chance to review Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. My husband is always excited to break out the grill, so when he saw this package come in the mail, he was ready to pull the grill out right then!
I was sent two bottles of the same sauce to review so I decided to try three different recipes with the sauce, two nights in a row.
We grilled steaks with the sauce the first night using the following marinade recipe:
1 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup sesame oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 T ground ginger
1 (13 oz) bottle Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
This recipe was in a pamphlet that came in the box with the sauce. It was a Grilled Pork Tenderloin recipe. I used the exact recipe except I used it for chuck steaks instead of pork tenderloin.
I poured the marinade over the steaks, covered and put the steaks in the refrigerator for four hours. I flipped the steaks every hour.
My husband grilled them.These steaks were so juicy and tender! They were a HUGE hit at my house! The flavor had a sweet tang to it. The steaks weren't too sweet and yet it wasn't too tangy. It has the perfect meet in the middle type of flavor. My husband already cannot wait to make these again. I requested we try this same marinade with grilled chicken next.
The second night, I used Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce to make Meatloaf and Baked Beans. The Meatloaf and Baked Beans recipes were in the pamphlet as well.
Country Bob's Meatloaf
1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
12 saltine crackers, crushed (I used dry bread crumbs instead)
2 eggs, beaten
3/4 c Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
1/4 cup milk
1 T Country Bob's Season Salt
1/4 t pepper
Combine all ingredients. Spread in loaf pan. Top with additional Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce. Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.
Country Bob's Fantastic Baked Beans
1 can (53 oz) pork and beans, drain off half of liquid
1/2 pound broiled or fried pork steak-cut into 1/2 inch squares (may substitute bacon)
2 cups Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce
1 small onion, finely chopped
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 t Country Bob's Season Salt
1/2 green pepper, diced
Combine all ingredients, if using bacon, place on top of beans prior to baking.
Bake 350 degrees for 1 hour.
I cut the beans recipe in half and did not use any meat in it because of my vegetarian daughter.
These two recipes were perfect to bake together because they took the exact same amount of time at the same temperature!
My family loves meatloaf. We have used the same meatloaf recipe for years, so for me to go and change it up a bit, I thought this may spell disaster. It didn't! The meatloaf wasn't bad! I think next time, I will make my meatloaf as I usually do and put a splash or two of Country Bob's in it. I like the flavor the sauce gave to the meatloaf, but my family is just hooked on how we make meatloaf the old fashioned way!
I have been looking for a good baked beans recipe for years. I now have my recipe although I really want to try it with the pork steaks next time!
Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce is so versatile, it can go on pork, beef or chicken. You can use it over rice, on vegetables or as a french fry dip. You can use it to make barbecue sauce or cocktail sauce. You can use it in so many different ways, why would you not keep this in your house? This will now be a staple in my mine!
Before I finish my review, I must point out one of Country Bob's logos. "Christ is our C.E.O" These days, a lot of companies do not want to mention Christ for fear of offending someone. I am thrilled that Country Bob does not have this fear. They have a great point here! Christ should be all of ours C.E.O!
