A while ago we whipped up a couple of quick sauces for a television appearance. While Rocklands Original Barbeque Sauce takes time and lots of stirring to develop its tangy-sweet character, this mustard sauce is one you can assemble pretty fast. The mustard is key in here, so use one you really like. Classic (not too hot) dijon mustards, good old brown and yellow mustards — they are all good and very different from each other! You can also play with the vinegar: Try substituting a bit of balsamic vinegar for the white vinegar to add depth. And if you were wondering about the photo? Mustard flower. Yum.
