My new favorite barbecue sauce!

Tangy, sweet, spicy, zippy!  These are the words that come to mind when I think of this barbecue sauce on my tongue!  I have these people to thank for the recipe!   I only changed the sugars they used to my sugar free/low sugar.

North Carolina Mustard Barbecue Sauce

  • 1 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup splenda
  • 1/4 splenda brown sugar
  • 3/4 apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 water
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder (I wished I would have remembered to use my chipotle pepper I got yesterday!) 😦
  • 2 teaspoons black pepper (it called for 1 teaspoon each of white/black pepper, I only had black
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Mix all together and cook on simmer for 30 minutes.  Then add:

  • 1.2 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
once you add the last three ingredients, simmer for 10 more minutes

when I reached for the jar, it slipped in my hand and I lost 1/4 of it on the floor!  Rats!  If there wasn't dog hair on the floor, I probably would have licked it up!

My plate, with fried zucchini shreds.  Tony saw these on a blog and wanted me to try them out.  So easy and good!   They cook in the deep fryer in about 4 minutes.  Sprinkle liberally with fine salt right after they come out of the fryer.
My coals were perfect!  I am really getting comfortable with the Weber!

And since I had the fryer going, I decided to fry up some corn tortillas to go with our empanadas later tonight.  I love these chips!
cut the torillas in quarters and fry away - they take about 3-4 minutes

And then Tony had the idea to toss some fried chips in cinnamon/sugar.  Joe LOVES cinnamon!
I made a big batch for him to take home :D

My chip?  I deep fried hot peppers! 
only if I had quacamole would this chip be better!

I am off to the store – I don’t have much to get and think I’ll still get in under my $125 budget – I spent $89 on the meat yesterday,  so I have to finish off my shopping in under $36 – wish me luck!
Come on back for a late dinner:  Empanadas!
