Bewitched BBQ Sauce

Add mustard to eggs or ham and it's now “deviled”. Make a BBQ sauce based on mustard and it's Bewitched! Soon men everywhere will be cleaning off their BBQ grills and starting the summer ritual of cooking outside. Here is a great sauce to learn for a special enchanting outdoor meal! 

Today it is paired with some backwards cooked pork for an out doors taste done in the oven.

Sauce Ingredients

  • ½ cups yellow mustard
  • ¾ cup packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp black pepper + ½ tsp white pepper
  • 1 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • ½ teaspoons liquid smoke flavoring
  • ½ cup peach preserves
Sauce Directions:
In a heavy saucepan, stir together the mustard, brown sugar, and vinegar. Season with black and white peppers. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat, and cook for about 20 minutes

DO NOT BOIL, or you will scorch the sugar and peppers.
In the microwave, heat the peach preserves 30 sec, just so it is melted. Add to pot.
Mix in the Worcestershire sauce, butter, and liquid smoke. Simmer for another 15 to 20 
 minutes. Taste, and season to your liking.

Pour into an airtight jar, and refrigerate for overnight to allow flavors to blend. 
The vinegar taste may be a little strong until the sauce completely cools. 

Now for the meat!
1.5 – 2 lbs thick cut pork steak or sliced pork butt.
When ready to cook, rinse and pat dry with paper towels.
Pre heat the oven to 250 degrees. (this is low and slow)
Line a pan with foil and spray a rack to set inside.
Make a couple of small slits on the sides of the chop where the white line of fat is. This will keep the chop from “cupping”.

Place in oven for about 50 minutes or until a thermometer reads 110 degrees.

Switch oven to broil. As that heats, brush the meat with the Barbecue sauce. Make sure the meat is about 4 – 5 inches away from heating source. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, each side, re-applying sauce when you turn the meat.
Watch this carefully as it can easily burn. Temp. should reach 160 degrees F on a thermometer.

This serves well with a pea salad and some white rice with BBQ sauce on top.
