Yes! I said, “Award-winning!” Bellisari’s Saigon Street Sauce brought home the Silver Medal in the category of Sweet-Mild Mustards in the World-Wide Mustard Competition for 2022, and we couldn’t be prouder. It is a blind tasting, so the judges have only unlabeled jars in front of them. They don’t know if they are sampling the product of a large international company or that of a small artisan producer. They bring together chefs, food writers, other food professionals, and mustard aficionados to carefully evaluate the competition. As you can imagine, it is a daunting task but one that the judges take very seriously. Bellisari’s Saigon Street Sauce is a non-traditional sauce, inspired by Vietnamese food, that has an exceptional balance of heat and sweet roasted garlic flavor. It is a mustard-based pepper sauce that harmonizes well with burgers, and sandwiches, and as a gourmet finishing sauce.
Saigon Street Sauce may be award-winning for its delicious flavor, but if there was a category for versatility, this sauce would win for that too. Whether putting a fancy meal on the table for company or grilling for your upcoming Memorial Day cookout, Bellisari’s Saigon Street Sauce is the only sauce you’ll need. This sweet and mildly spicy mustard-based sauce works beautifully as a finishing sauce for bratwurst, for example.
This sauce is so versatile that it also makes a terrific dressing in our slaw recipe. Our Saigon Slaw is always a hit and is the perfect dish to take to any Memorial Day potlucks you may be invited to this year.
Finally, don’t forget about pulled pork and ribs! Bellisari’s Saigon Street Sauce will take these to the next level. Try these memorable recipes this Memorial Day: Bellisari's Saigon Ginger Beer Pulled Pork or, slather our delicious award-winning Bellisari’s Saigon Street Sauce all over some baby back ribs as a delicious finishing touch!
And if you’re looking for the perfect beverage to pair with any of our Saigon Street Sauce recipes, we recommend a dry stout. All Bellisari’s Gourmet Sauces and Spreads have either a beer or wine pairing suggestion on every jar. Happy Memorial Day from all of us at Bellisari’s!
