Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce Review




Country Bob's contacted me and asked me if I would be interested in trying their All-Purpose Sauce and reviewing it for them. Since I have tried Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce in the past and absolutely loved it, I jumped at the chance to "officially" review this great product!


For those of you who have never heard of Country Bob's, here is a brief history taken from their website:

"In 1968 Country Bob perfected the sauce of his dreams. After years of giving the sauce to friends and family he began to sell it in 1977. The reaction was overwhelming just as it is today. Almost everyone who tries Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce becomes a lifelong user. And why not, it is the perfect complement to practically any meal set on your table.

It was actually October of 1982 when Country Bob, Inc. became the company, which remains today. Bob Edson, Terry Edson, Al Malekovic and Reed Malekovic formed a corporation with equal ownership. Since that time Country Bob's distribution has magnified regionally in all directions from our corporate office located in Centralia, Illinois. Even with the tremendous growth we have not forgotten where we came from, continuing in our relentless pursuit of product excellence. "

"It would be nice if we could claim responsibility for the success of the company, however, credit must be given where credit is due. Proverbs 16:3 says, "Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed." We have placed true ownership of Country Bob, Inc. in the hands of God. "Christ is our CEO" and He is an Awesome Boss!"

When my family had used Country Bob's in the past, we had never tried it in an actual recipe. The only way that we had used it was a dipping sauce for steak and pork chops. Until receiving my review bottles and the accompanying recipe brochure I really had never thought of other uses for the sauce.

According to their website:

"Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce is in a class by itself. It is more than a steak sauce, because of its unique flavor and the variety of uses. You can grill, cook, and marinate with it, or put it in your soups, stews, baked beans, and your other favorite dishes. Experience the Taste!
Use our All Purpose Sauce on:

•Steak
•Chicken
•Barbeque
•Fries
•Hamburger
•Fish"


Their website also lists tons of recipes to use the sauce in. I chose to prepare the Country Bob's Meatloaf. It is basically the same meatloaf recipe that I normally use, but instead of using ketchup you use Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce. The sauce added a great, unique flavor to what is normally a somewhat bland meatloaf. The flavor was great!

I also see that on the website that Country Bob's has expanded their line of products to include Spicy All-Purpose Sauce, Seasoning Salt, and Barbeque Sauce. They say that Country Bob's Spicy Hot can also be used in the meatloaf which I bet would give it an incredible taste as well! I think for my children though the original Country Bob's sauce is probably better suited to their palates but the Spicy version is definitely one that I would love to try. I bet the barbeque sauce is excellent as well!

They said in the quote above that most who try the sauce will become lifelong users and I can attest that this is true in our case! Before I reviewed the product we were already loyal users but after reading the materials that came with it and reading the website I found so many more uses than I ever imagined! We will definitely be using more Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce in the future!

For those wondering where to buy the product, it is available at most Wal-mart SuperCenters. You can input your zip code at http://countrybobs.com/locator/ to find the store nearest you.

ALSO, just for visiting their website you can get a free bottle of Country Bob's All-Purpose Sauce of your own to try!
