Carolina Mustard Sauce Recipe

Whip up a batch of this goodness for all of your chicken, pork, and saucy needs. It’s especially good on a pulled pork sandwich, just sayin’.

Carolina Mustard Sauce


2 tablespoons butter
¾ cup yellow mustard
1/3 cup honey (you know what kind of honey to use…)
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ cup apple cider vinegar
2 teaspoons hot sauce (we like tabasco or Louisiana hot sauce)
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons ketchup
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground black pepper 



Step 1: Assemble your ingredients.


Step 2: Place the butter in a saucepan over medium heat and melt it. The butter, not the saucepan.


Step 3: Add the mustard to the melted butter and mix. Keep the saucepan on the stove, the heat will help everything blend together.



Step 4: Stir in the honey and mix until smooth.


Step 5: Add the brown sugar and smush it until it’s all broken up and melted (or dissolved. Yeah, dissolved.).


Step 6: Stir in the apple cider vinegar. Ignore the disgusting “smelly old foot” aroma – it’ll go away.


Step 7: Add the hot sauce and Worcestershire and stir it up! Little darlin’, stir it up!


Step 8: Add the ketchup and mix is all the globby bits. Also the salt and pepper – they can be thrown in there too. 


Step 9: Just in case your mixing skills aren’t up to par, break out a whisk and give the concoction a good stir. A clumpy sauce is a gross sauce. 


Step 10: Transfer the sauce to a jar or a bowl or a container of some sort. 


Step 11: Let the sauce cool before storing in the refrigerator, but if you want to use it right away, let it cool a bit so it’s not piping hot. There, you’ve been warned.
We take no responsibility for your consuming the sauce earlier than you should and burning your tongue and the roof of your mouth and then having to deal with everything having a sandpaperesque texture for the next week due to said burnt tongue.
