Ancho chili peppers are an incredibly potent flavor component of Latin and Mexican cuisine. They are smokey and spicy and their strong flavors are very fluid, allowing them to infuse into whatever dishes you add them too. To create this Sweet Ancho Sauce Rub we’ve combined Ancho chilies with cinnamon, spices, fresh herbs, sweet brown sugar and a splash of bourbon. This sauce makes a perfect rub, especially for big pieces of pork, intended to be cooked low and slow.
Marinating your proteins and hearty vegetables allows you to improve your food in several ways. One, you’re of course infusing your ingredients with lots of wonderful flavors. Two, any acidity in the marinade tenderizes your meats and proteins by starting to break down some of the tougher fibers. And three, you’re giving your ingredients lots of great moisture to soak up; moisture that won’t be lost during the cooking process.
Please remember that our marinades are perishable and should be refrigerated after opening.
