The hubs considers himself a grilling expert. Me, not so much, but I was happy to let him try the new K.C. Masterpiece Southern Style Barbecue Sauce. The hubs bought a few racks of ribs and used a rub he had on hand to pre-season the ribs. Then he brushed on a few layers of the new sauce while grilling the ribs. The result? Smokey and tangy beef ribs that were awesome! Me, I like tons of sauce with just a bit of meat so the K.C. Masterpiece Southern Style Barbecue Sauce made a great dipping sauce for the ribs as well.
What makes this thin-bodied sauce so rich? Probably the cider vinegar, the heat of black and red pepper as well as a long Southern tradition of barbecue which goes into every bottle of K.C. Masterpiece Southern Style Barbecue Sauce. We also tried it with a pork roast in the slow cooker using this award-winning recipe:
Central Coast Pulled Pork Delight
1 pork tri-tip (4–5 pounds)
2 quarts water
1 cup molasses (8 ounces)
2/3 cup salt (6 ounces)
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon black powder
2 cups KC Masterpiece® Original Barbecue Sauce
Mix water, molasses and salt in large container until salt is dissolved. Place pork tri-tip in a one (1) gallon Glad® Food Storage Bag and pour in all the liquid to cover. Remove extra air and seal bag. Place in a bowl in the refrigerator for 12 to 24 hours. Make sure to rotate once. Remove the pork from bag and pat dry with paper towel (discard remaining liquid). Sprinkle with onion powder, garlic powder and black pepper evenly over the pork. Place in a roasting pan lined with foil and cover. Place the seasoned pork in a 225°F oven and roast for 7 to 8 hours or until it reaches 170°F and starts to pull apart. Remove from oven and let cool slightly. Pull pork apart and mix in KC Masterpiece® Barbecue Sauce.
The result? Tender, tangy pulled pork that was chockful of flavor!
