If you want to taste one of the finest mustard barbecue sauce recipes ever concocted then get your bbq grill out and I'll show you how.
It’s a sauce that works well with almost anything, but particularly grilled pork or roast pork
It's something more like a paste than a sauce so definitely better to use a finishing mop and brush on during the cooking rather than leave until the end and pour over.
All you need to do is mix the ingredients together in a saucepan and simmer for approx 30 mins. Just enough time to get the barbecue lit and the coals ready if you're using charcoal.
As you look through the ingredients list you'll see that there's sugar and vinegar there to provide the sweet and sour together with some of the other traditional barbecue sauce ingredients like Worcestershire sauce but note that there's no ketchup or tomato base.
The color is therefore different to what you might expect and the flavor too but don't judge a book by it's cover. Get in there, you won't be disappointed.
Anyone whose up to speed with their allergy will probably already have recognized that a mustard barbecue sauce recipe is going to contain mustard so if mustard is your allergy then you're probably not reading this anyway! In addition however I must point out that there is both fish and gluten in Worcestershire sauce.

The method statement for this recipe is pretty straightforward...
Throw all the ingredients into a saucepan and warm through whilst stirring. That's all there is to it and your mustard BBQ sauce is ready. You should now have a "paste" that you can slap on your grilled pork steak or chop.
Use it as a finishing mop and the heat of the grill will help create a crispy spiciness to the outside of your meat or alternatively spoon on as you plate up.
These next three recipes deserve the mustard classification because they all contain mustard to a greater or lesser extent. That said there's one ingredient that they all contain in addition and that's honey so I've listed them primarily as honey barbecue sauces but I think that they also deserve a mention here too.
First up is what I called the regular honey mustard sauce. It has the classic honey and mustard combination with a hint of chilli.
Second is my Chinese variation. If you are into spare ribs or duck then this is a good one to try.
Finally a recipe which was sent in by one of our readers in Poland. It's honey, mustard and freshly chopped dill. I have to say that before trying this I was a little nervous because I'm not a big fan of dill but with everything combined and a succulent grilled pork steak to cover, I've become a bit of a convert.
