Get a Free Bottle of Country Bobs All Purpose Sauce!

There are some products that sit unobtrusively on the shelf, waiting for you to notice them, with a folksy, perhaps quaint label. Not flashy, and you probably haven't seen ads on tv or them, they rely on word of mouth or people trying them on a whim. When I first saw a bottle of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce this week, I'm pretty sure I've walked by it on my local store shelf a thousand times and never noticed it.

I'm going to ask you to notice it. I tried it this week for the first time... and loved it so much we had it in another recipe the very next night!

Looking at the label I wasn't sure what kind of sauce it was. My assumption was that it was going to be just like a famous steak sauce with a letter and number it's name. When I showed it to my husband he thought the same and we discussed saving it to have the next time we grilled steaks.

Instead, using a recipe from the brochure (available on their website as well, just follow the link) I gave into my teenage sons request for shrimp cocktails. When I opened and tasted the sauce I stopped and said, "Oh. Wow." It wasn't what I was expecting.

Sweeter than the typical steak sauce, it's a wonderful blend somewhere between a steak sauce, a chili sauce and a bbq sauce. It's all... and neither. It's just... really good! I had to have another taste, and then a third while the 'chef' in me kept asking myself; "What IS it that makes this so good!?"

I never quite figured it out, but the blend of ingredients is truly the perfect 'all purpose' sauce for everything from poultry to steak, from seafood to pork and everything inbetween.



Using a pound of large shrimp, boiled in a simple mixture of water and Old Bay seasoning I used the recipe from Country Bob's website to make the cocktail sauce for the shrimp. I used horseradish sauce instead of pure horseradish though.

The very next night we were having boneless chicken breasts. Wanting a quick and simple marinade I covered them in Kikkoman's Soy Sauce (which is more like a teriyaki sauce as it's thick and sweet) and mixed in 1/2 cup of Bob's Country Sauce. After broiling the breasts I heated the sauce and simmered it 10 minutes and served it along side the chicken that night at dinner. It was... incredible.

I think Country Bob's is the kind of product that a friend or family member introduces you to, and once you try it it becomes a regular staple in your household.
