I'm always looking for new recipes to try. Admittedly, I don't actually have the time to try most of them. When I was given the chance to check out Country Bob's sauce, I jumped at it. A new sauce can make an entire meal taste like a new one, with minimal effort. I wasn't really sure what to expect, but I ran to my local butcher and grabbed the biggest steak I could find and proceeded to play.
When opening the bottle of original sauce, it was impossible to not start out by having a little taste. It tastes like a cross between A-1 steak sauce and barbecue sauce. It smells like a cross between the two items as well. Normally they're both too strong on their own for my taste, but blended together, I loved it! So, I gave it another taste. Yep! Just as good the second time!
The real test came with the making of the meat. I dumped the entire bottle into my huge skillet and plopped in the steak. I cooked it slowly over medium heat until the steak was brown. Then I opened up my broiler and gently tossed the steak from the top of the stove to the bottom of it. Don't worry; I cleaned up the mess of Country Bob droplets all over the kitchen floor while my steak was sizzling in the broiler. As soon as I could smell charred beef, I opened the broiler to flip the meat over. Soon my steak was broiled to perfection! I pulled it out and put it on my favorite plate. It looked so pretty I had to take a picture! Then came the real test....tasting! Honestly, it still tasted great on the meat, but more of a sweet taste came out than I'd originally had before cooking the sauce. So, I tested it on a few of my guy friends. They greedily devoured their portion and asked for more. No complaints at all from them! They loved it!
If you're a steak sauce or barbecue sauce kind of person, you really have to give this stuff a shot. I have a teenage boy who adores meat and I can't wait to see what he thinks of this! Also, as soon as grilling season hits again, I plan to experiment with several different products. In the meantime...I've got a broiler to attempt to clean.
