Barbecue Sauce with Mustard

Top Review by learningtolikecooki

This is the first barbecue sauce I have ever made - actually, it didn't even occur to me that you could make it. I loved it. My kids and husband loved it. I made about 3/4 of the sauce (approximating amounts). I also used brown sugar and less mustard (1/2 dijon and 1/2 yellow). It was fantastic on steaks! I am reformed. I have a good amount leftover and in the fridge. Can't wait to use it next time. Highly recommend!
