What is Mopping Sauce?

Mopping sauce is a sauce that is mopped or brushed on meat or vegetables as it is cooking.  The word “mop” comes from the fact that it is a small mop that is used to “mop” the sauce onto the meat. See the picture attached.

Mopping the meat as it is cooking adds flavor and moisture to the meat.  The mopping sauce in the recipe adds sweetness from the apple juice, tanginess from the pineapple juice, and savoriness from the rub while at the same time adding moisture.  This sauce is also just a good sauce, especially for pork.  You will find this recipe in our pork ribs recipe and in our pulled pork recipe.  If you wnat the ultimate pork, give this a try.  You just need to make this and taste it.  It is crazy good!Mopping Sauce Recipe
