Southwest Hungarian Mop

Back to Marinades, Sauces & Rubs

Leander from Birmingham, Alabama

24 oz Tomato Sauce
5 tbs Hot Hungarian Paprika powder, (Adjust as you see fit)
1 tbs Ground Ginger
1 tbs Mild Curry Powder, (Or hot if you dare )
1 tbs Finely ground Black Pepper
11/2 tbs Ground Cumin
2 tbs Chopped garlic, or more
2 tbs DARK brown sugar, I said DARK

Brown the tomato sauce, over medium, (be careful it can burn very easily). If it does throw it out and start over, in a heavy sauce pan, this is called the mallard effect. Add the garlic and simmer for 5 minutes. Add the other ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Cool rapidly by putting it in the refrigerator. Let it set for at least 2 hours, overnight is better.

This is excellent on ribs, it will do about 4 pounds of ribs. Mop it on during the last 10 minutes of grilling, or sooner if you like a nice char. Yes, you can use Mexican hot paprika but it is milder than the Hungarian so adjust accordingly. In this case it would be Northwest Mexican Mop.

ALABAMA!!!! GO TIDE!! (We are on our way back!)
