Playing Around With Country Bob's Original All Purpose Sauce

A few weeks back, the people at Country Bob's emailed me and asked would I mind reviewing and talking about their product.Would I mind? Send it on over.

The promptly sent over 2 bottles of their Original All Purpose Sauce. Come to find out they are based in Illinois! With all my cake projects, etc I was to busy to cook. Certain Someone was leaving for Sweden and I relented and let him have his Harold's chicken. He's addicted to this South Side Specialty. Normally they drown the chicken and fries in either a hot or BBQ Sauce.Its unbelievable. I told him to order it plain and undressed so we could add the Country Bobs to it. On first taste it pretty good. Not as sweet, thick, and gooey as most BBQ sauces. I actually described it as cross between a Steak Sauce and a BBQ . I liked. I just felt eating it with the chicken, I poured more on as it was a thinner sauce.
So then I decided to actually cook with it. If you visit their web site, they have a lot of great recipes. On a leisurely Sunday with the man away I decided to make Chicken Sausage. With that I was going to make Chicken Meatballs baked with Country Bobs! I much preferred using Country Bobs Original All Purpose Sauce as a cooking sauce , but it was good as a dunking sauce too. I definitely would like to try their other products.
Here is my quick Chicken Sausage Meatballs recipe:
Chicken Meatballs
4-5 chicken thighs
1 leek
1 apple
1 egg
1/2 cup unseasoned bread crumbs
1/2 bottle of Country Bob's Original All Purpose Sauce
olive oil
Spices to season:* play around with your qty's to suit your tastes
Maple Sugar
Red Pepper Flakes
Smoked Paprika
Run the Chicken Thighs, leek, and apple through your Kitchen Aid Meat Grinder. Season with your spices. Add egg and breadcrumbs. Mixture is slightly runny, but able to handle with oiled hands to form balls. Place formed meatballs in a pre oiled baking dish. Bake at 350 for approx 25 minutes. Pour 1/2 bottle of Country Bobs and toss the meatballs. Cook for an additional 10 minutes. Serve as appetizers, as a sandwich, etc.
Sorry you missed it Honey!

Hey, I love BBQ sauce. If someone emailed me to ask if I would review a product I like, I'd say yes. I just get the random "review my website" requests. :( Why can't I get BBQ sauce?

You are exactly right to try it with chicken right off the bat. Those meatballs look yummeh!

What a great review and great use of their product! I think you did the Country Bob's folks proud.

Thistlemoon said...

Those meatballs sound really good - apples and leeks? Wow, Courtney, you went all out! The sauce sounds right up my alley too. Are there any bad ingredients in there? I love BBQ sauce, but I can't find a single one now without corn syrup - so I decided that I am going to be making my own from here on out!

Chou said...

Fun. I bet your honey was so sad to have been out of town for that one.
