This giveaway has been closed.
Every once in a while, a specific product will start popping up on all of my favorite blogs. I am the type of person that is skeptical of most fads, so I’m generally pretty cynical about these products. However, in this case I was intrigued. I mean, I love steak.
The product in question here is Country Bob’s All Purpose sauce. All of these blogs were showing me pictures of big juicy steaks smothered in a deep, rich looking sauce that they just gushed over!
I couldn’t resist (who could though…it’s steak y’all!).
So I contacted the company and asked if I could review their product, and they were quick to answer and throw two bottles in the mail for me.
My first thought upon receiving my Country Bob’s sauce was thankfulness for the plastic bottle. I hate glass bottle condiments. I have 2 young children and glass bottles drive me crazy. In fact, and this might surprise some of you, I have been known to spend extra to get plastic over glass condiments.
Another plus to me was a small notation on the bottle itself:
I am a big supporter of Christian companies, so knowing I was working with a Christian company on this review and giveaway was a major plus for me.
“People who try Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce become lifelong users.” was printed on the bottle, within the story of how the sauce came about. Okay, we’ll see about that.
The Real Test-How Does It Taste?
We decided to try the sauce on some steaks for the first time. I know it’s All Purpose sauce…but come on now, we all know that if it doesn’t pair well with steak it won’t work with anything! Luckily, I was able to snag a Manager’s Special on some steaks (want to learn how to shop smarter?) so I got a really great deal! I grilled up our steaks on our inside electric grill and we used the All Purpose sauce as a dipping sauce.
As a bit of an aside, I am not a huge fan of sauces on my steak. I’m a salt and pepper only kind of girl.
This though? This was bliss. First off, I have to give myself a pat on the back…the steaks were cooked perfectly! The sauce was unlike any other steak sauce I’ve ever tried. It had a sweet, yet spicy kick to it. It didn’t overpower the perfectly grilled steak, instead it complimented it in a way that was unexpected. My husband, who is a steak sauce lover, enjoyed it…but not quite as much as I did.
Until the next week, when we tried it on ribs. Letting the sauce really cook with the ribs really made it take on a whole new flavor. I can honestly say I’ve never had tastier ribs!
And of course there was the other day, when we tried it on burgers….YUM.
He is now more in love with the sauce than I am, and was ecstatic to see that we could purchase the sauce at our local Kroger.
The only negative of this product is that it does contain high fructose corn syrup. Which is an ingredient my family tries to use only in moderation. Thankfully though, the rest of the ingredients are all ingredients I have actually heard of and in fact likely have in my pantry right now. It is only a condiment, so in moderation I personally think it is fine.
