Ingredients For Stone Ground Mustard Sauce

There’s quite a few ingredients in this recipe. Most of them are kitchen staples. So, you should be able to go right to your kitchen cabinets/fridge and gather them up.

However, a few of the ingredients may require a trip to the store. I rarely have shallots in the house. And heavy cream and white wine are hit or miss around here.

So grab a pen and put the ingredients you need on next week’s shopping list. Because you’re going to want to make this stone ground mustard sauce as soon as you can.

This is what you’ll need …

Stone Ground Mustard – The mustard flavor in this recipe is strong. A good quality mustard is important to it’s success, stone ground mustard is preferred.

White Wine – Any white wine can be used for this sauce. I am not a wine drinker, so I just use white cooking wine.

Heavy Cream – The heavy cream gives this recipe a rich, smooth flavor.

Shallots – Shallots work well with this sauce. Onions can be used in a pinch. But shallots are preferred, as they have a much milder bite.

Butter – Butter, like heavy cream, lends a rich, smooth flavor to this recipe.

Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice is the best choice for this sauce. But I’ve used bottled lemon juice plenty of times to make it, and it works out just fine.

Tapioca Starch – Tapioca starch is used to thicken this recipe. Corn starch can be used instead if that’s what you have. Tapioca starch is a much cleaner food than corn starch. And it works really well.

These are the seasonings you’ll need …

Garlic – Fresh garlic makes all the difference in the world when making this sauce. Granulated garlic can be used in a pinch. But do use fresh garlic if you can.

Oregano – Oregano and mustard compliment one another nicely. This is the perfect spice for this recipe.

Salt – Salt is used to enhance the other flavors in this sauce.

Pepper – Pepper provides depth and even a bit more ‘bite’ to this recipe.

How To Make This Sauce

Cooking With Stone Ground Mustard Sauce

One batch of this stone ground mustard sauce is enough for two meals in my house. There are only two of us, and it’s quite a large batch.

I find that when I make it to serve over meats or veggies, I have about half a batch left.

I use that extra sauce later in the week to cook with. It makes a really great marinade. Cooking it over meat in the oven, or basting meat with it on the grill, change it’s flavor considerably.

It develops a sticky, sweetness that’s just delightful.

This change in flavor makes this sauce like the best of both worlds for me. I get to enjoy it all bursting with tanginess as a topping or dip at the start of the week. And then savor it again as a sweeter sauce, with more depth of flavor, later in the week.

And finally, another great way to use this sauce is to mix it in equal parts with soy sauce and whip up a stir fry with it.

How To Serve This Sauce

Stone ground mustard sauce can be ladled over grilled, fried, or baked meat; chicken, turkey, pork, and beef are all really great choices.

It can also be served on the side of any of these meats as a dip. This is how I most often serve it at home. It allows each of us to control how much sauce we use.

It can also be ladled onto cooked vegetables, or served on the side of them as a dip as well. It’s particularly good with deep fried veggies.

This sauce makes a great sandwich spread. And it can be put in a wrap or poured over a salad too.

And … don’t forget the potatoes, stone ground mustard sauce is great over french fries, baked potatoes, and homefries.

Is This Stone Ground Mustard Sauce Good For You?

As sauces go, this stone ground mustard sauce is really a pretty healthy choice.

There’s not too much sugar. It’s pretty light in salt and the fat content isn’t all that high.

The only ingredients that have dietary drawbacks at all are the wine and the heavy cream. And, if you consider the serving size of this sauce, the effects of those drawbacks end up being pretty negligent.

Unless, of course, you plan on drinking the sauce. And while I understand that you may want to, because it tastes fantastic, that is not recommended.

Additionally, this sauce has a bitter element to it’s flavor profile that is actually very good for you. It comes from both the lemon juice and the mustard.

Bitter flavors are not eaten much in our country, and they are very important for good health in many ways.

Most notably, they encourage proper digestion of food. So … I’d say … Yes, yes indeeed this sauce is good for you.

How To Store This Sauce

To store this stone ground mustard sauce, place it in an airtight container and keep it in the refrigerator. It will last up to 10 days stored this way.
