Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce- Sweet and Tangy BBQ Sauce Recipe
Carolina Mustard BBQ Sauce is a little sweet from honey, a little tangy from apple cider vinegar, and a little spicy from red pepper flakes. It is delicious poured over pulled pork or slathered on grilled chicken. It is the perfect homemade BBQ sauce to have on hand for your cookouts.
Combine ¾ cup yellow mustard, ½ cup apple cider vinegar, ½ cup cup honey, 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce, 2 tbsp ketchup, 1 tsp garlic powder, 1 tbsp red pepper flakes, ½ tsp salt, 2 tbsp brown sugar in a sauce pan.
Cook on low heat stirring continuously to prevent scorching for 5 to 7 minutes.
Cool completely. Then pour into a jar. Refrigerated until ready to serve.
Note: I add 1 tablespoon of red pepper flakes to give a little kick. I don't think that makes it too spicy. If you want it to not have any spice, you can omit the flakes. If you want more heat, add another tablespoon.
