Holy Cow! Spicy Bombay Ketchup

Holy Cow! Spicy Bombay Ketchup

BBQ sauce is a area that seems to cover all sorts of sauces, I love BBQ, especially slow cooked pulled pork with lashings of BBQ Sauces, but this sauce is a surprisingly different.

On opening the sauce you can smell the Tomato, Vinegar and a touch of Lemon and Mint. The sauce has a good consistency you would expect from a BBQ sauce, with all the ingredients well suspended in the mix.

The sauces is a dark red colour with small flecks of what I suspect is the mint floating in it, and it is the mint that is the first flavour you taste, then the vinegar and tomato, then finally the lemon and salt. The base sauce is nice and sweet; it reminds me of some of the sauces you get served with roast lamb or lamb shanks.

There is very little heat from the Habanero chillies, but is has a pleasant slight warmth, I can see a recipe for slow cooked BBQ lamb coming soon, this sauce would be excellent at cutting the sometimes fatty taste of the lamb. (It is traditional to use Mint and Vinegar to do this with roast Lamb).

Ingredients: Water, Sugar, Tomato Paste (18%), Spirit Vinegar, Cornflour, Garlic Powder, Salt, Lemon Juice Concentrate, Chilli Powder, Mustard Seed, Habanero Chilli Puree (Habanero Peppers, Salt, Acidity Regulator: Acetic Acid), Crushed Chilli, Dried Mint, Paprika Extract.

Bottle Kindly supplied by Holy Cow! Food Co.

As a BBQ sauces this was not what I expected, no molasses, no smoke, but as a accompaniment for BBQ Lamb, or in/on a Lamb kebab it is excellent, it won’t last long we do like our BBQ’s here at ChileFoundry HQ.

The sauces contains, no artificial colours, flavours or preservatives, it is suitable for Vegetarians, Vegans and being gluten free Coelicas as well. It comes in a 305g bottle and is currently on offer at the special price of just £1.49 in ASDA stores, for more information visit www.holycowfc.com

Last night we roasted a leg of lamb and added the sauce for just the last 10 mins. It worked very well, just adding the sauce at the end of cooking makes sure the sugars in the sauce do not burn and turn bitter.
