A tangy mustard-based sauce distinguishes Carolina-style barbecue from its sweeter Kansas City cousin. This recipe makes 2 cups of sauce, leaving plenty to serve on the side. For crunch in your sandwiches, serve with coleslaw.
YIELD: SERVES 4
1 cup apple cider vinegar
⅔ cup no-salt-added ketchup
¼ cup yellow mustard
3 Tbs. dark brown sugar
1 Tbs. molasses
2 tsp. Louisiana-style hot sauce
2 tsp. black pepper
1 tsp. salt
12 oz. seitan, drained, and cut into thin strips
4 hamburger-style buns
12 pickle chips, optional
Bring vinegar, ketchup, mustard, brown sugar, molasses, hot sauce, black pepper, and salt to a simmer in saucepan over medium heat. Cook 5 minutes. Transfer 1 cup sauce to bowl, and set aside. Add seitan to saucepan, and cook 10 minutes. Divide among buns. Serve with pickle chips, coleslaw, and extra sauce, if using.
