A Food Industry Secret Is Finally Out
Contributed by: News Canada
(NC) - Just in time for barbecue season, Cattlemen's award-winning barbecue sauce is now available in Canadian supermarkets. Its quality and versatility will allow anyone, from the barbecue master to the grilling rookie, to create their own award-winning barbecue dishes.
Although it's new to Canadian homes, Cattlemen's has been the secret behind great barbecue dishes in restaurants for more than 30 years. Cattlemen's has also been the secret ingredient found in the Grand Champion's winning recipe at the World Championship Barbecue Cooking Contest - Memphis in May, for 11 consecutive years.
What sets aside this sauce from the rest are the premium ingredients used in every batch. Unlike competitors' sauces that use modified food starch as a thickening agent and a substitute for tomato solids, Cattlemen's barbecue sauce uses only tomato paste as its base and does not contain starch, gums or preservatives.
There are two key reasons you'd want a starch-free barbecue sauce like Cattlemen's. First, starch can cause barbecue sauce to scorch and burn easily and, second, starch can draw the moisture out of meat.
Because Cattlemen's Barbecue sauce contains no starch, it really clings to meat and holds up under rigorous barbecuing conditions. It also holds its rich flavour, even when mixed with other ingredients or thinned with water or fruit juices, which makes it ideal for creative grillers who like to concoct their own mixtures for the grill.
Cattlemen's Barbecue Sauce is available in two different flavours; Classic and Honey. Classic is best on beef, pork or chicken and Honey is great for contemporary barbecue and seafood and doubles as an amazing dipping sauce, too. Cattlemen's Classic and Honey Barbecue Sauces are available now at grocery retailers across the country in convenient 425 mL bottles.
