Flavorful Recipes Using BBQ Sauce

In life there are two kinds of people.  Ketchup people and mustard people.  I am a mustard people.  I’ve never been a fan of ketchup, but I actually love BBQ sauce. Okay, I guess that means there are three kinds of people.  The rich, smoky flavor of BBQ sauce is very satisfying and depending on the sweetness or spice can offer a range of flavors that ketchup can’t seem to match. I never really used BBQ sauce on anything but meat or chicken until recently, and I can kick myself for not trying it sooner.


It all started last year when my sister in law made a now famous (in our family and circle) BBQ Seitan Pizza that my husband is still talking about.  As a vegetarian who plays host to carnivores, she was always interested in BBQ chicken pizza recipes she would read about or see on TV commercials and figured seitan, a textured wheat gluten that can mimic the texture of meat, could be a good sub for the chicken and she was absolutely right.

No tomato sauce needed for this recipe. Just Gold’s BBQ sauce, Seitan and smoky Gouda cheese. I like to add some crunchy red onions and sometimes even diced jalapenos for some kick and color.


While I was realizing all the possibilities of BBQ sauce I decided to try it in a hearty stew. I like to make stews with a lot of beans and vegetables and only a little bit of meat. It cuts down on the fat and calories and you really don’t miss the extra meat.  The flavor from Gold’s BBQ sauce was a perfect accompaniment to the dish and had the right tang to go with the cowboy twang. My Cowboy BBQ Bean Stew is a perfect easy weeknight dinner anytime.

I hope you enjoy these recipes and while I am at it I will share one more recipe using Gold’s BBQ Sauce for a BBQ Chicken Wrap it is the perfect solution to leftover chicken – make it for lunch or dinner and you will thank me.
