Try This: Incredible Series, Incredible Sauce (Duke’s Best)


Was THAT a game or what? What a World Series…

Duke’s Best Golden Mustard Sauce

Incredible baseball deserves incredible food…and thanks to some planning ahead of time we had a great night. You know how I’m always talking ‘bout cooking more food than you’re likely to eat at any one meal so you can easily throw together another meal? Well, GP grilled some EXTRA chicken earlier this week when we were still basking in the final blissful moments of an Indian summer.

“So we’ll have some for the game,” he said. I’ve got the smartest husband in the world (at least that’s what I’m thinking right now).

Well, last night it was raining to beat the band, but for Game 6 of the World Series we had a heck of an indoor picnic…Bacon-Spiked Potato Salad, Radish Slaw and Grilled Chicken slathered in Duke’s Best Golden Mustard Sauce.

It was the Duke’s Sauce that made the food special. This Carolina-inspired barbecue sauce is vinegar and mustard based so it has a sweet, tangy flavor with just enough bite to keep you interested (it’s got black pepper and chilies to round out the profile).

The ingredients are all natural, too… nothing in there that you can’t pronounce. And it’s gluten free and low fat… 18 calories per serving.

GP used it as a “mopping” sauce to baste the meat while it was cooking. Then, he slathered a little extra on at the end. (I think that since the chicken sat in the fridge for a few days it really helped marry the flavors.)

As you know, I’m from Texas, so I’m used to my chili-based, somewhat fiery sweet barbecue sauce. Have to admit I was never really big on the mustard based sauces… but Duke’s Best Gold Mustard Sauce changed my mind.

So now we’re on to Game 7…and I’ve gotta whip up a dinner worthy of matching the most exciting baseball I’ve seen in years!
