Is it possible for a bottled store-brand wing sauce to be too good? No, but Meijer Bourbon Honey Mustard wing sauce is about as good as you can get. All of the flavors are balanced and at just the right levels for me. Not too much bourbon flavor. Just the right honey sweetness. And the right mustardy vinegar kick. It’s different and delicious.
I contacted Meijer’s corporate office about the fact that I couldn’t find their Honey Bourbon wing sauce online. As of the time of this post they haven’t added it yet. So just head to your local Meijer and grab a bottle from the condiment section. While you’re there grab a few bottles of the other great Meijer wing sauces.
Hurray! Another great wing sauce from Meijer! Boy oh boy have I been happy with all of their sauces, and this Caribbean Jerk wing sauce is definitely no exception. It packs the allspice, the cinnamon, and oh yes, plenty of heat, into every single bite. For me, sometimes jerk seasoning or sauces can be a bit too heavy on the allspice. Not the case, here. It’s the perfect blend of flavors.
I don’t like to overly season my wings before cooking them, specially if I’m using a fantastic sauce like Meijer’s Caribbean Jerk sauce. I don’t want the spices to fight with the sauce, so I go simple: salt and pepper.
We live in Meijer country. Which is a good thing because I love the bottled wing sauces from Meijer. I first bought them when they were on sale, as sort of a trial run. Now I’ll pick some up any time I’m at the store. Like all of their sauces, Meijer Korean BBQ style wings sauce is mighty darned tasty. American BBQ sauces are vinegar- or tomato-based. Korean BBQ sauces are soy-based. The sauce has the perfect consistency, sticking to the wings but not glopping up. Too thick is not a good thing when it comes to wing sauces. Neither is too thin.
Korean BBQ actually means a way of preparing meats. Here in the US we’ve associated the terms with flavors. That flavor is a little sweet, a little savory and just a bit spicy. Meijer Korean BBQ style wing sauce is not only great on wings, either. It’s fantastic on smoked ribs, grilled burgers, or my other favorite, grilled chicken breast sandwiches.
