I need to again extend a “Thank You” to Firebud Brands for sending me some of their products to review. I’d invite you to read about their great rub and one of the best sauces I have reviewed – Salvation Sauce.
With that, we’re on to Pow Pow Sauce. Per Firebud, Pow Wow Sauce “is an Asian-inspired gourmet marinade and cooking sauce. It blends the sweet of pineapple juice from the Hawaiian Islands with the savory of soy, ginger and garlic from Southeast Asia. This versatile condiment can be used to complement all types of food, including: beef, chicken, pork, seafood and veggies.
Pow Pow Sauce© packs a punch of pure umami enlightenment…Enjoy!!”
When I tested the sauce, I used it as a marinade – once on chicken and once on pork chops. I love teriyaki-type marinades and Pow Pow didn’t disappoint. It had the typical teriyaki flavor with additional layers of complexity and flavor. The flavor was deep and rich and full of complex notes. The grilled chicken ended up great!
I marinated the pork chops for about 6 hours in the fridge, in a leak-proof container. I turned it over every hour or so. Then I grilled the chops over charcoal. I love grilled pork chops. I love pork chops and teriyaki. Pork chops grilled that have been marinated in Pow Pow Sauce? Out-standing!!!
This is another hit from Firebud. The sauce is rich and flavorful, and just the right thickness for marinating or basting. The flavor profile is big and complex – clearly they don’t take shortcuts on ingredients. The bottle sells for around 7 bucks and it is worth it. If you like Asian-inspired flavors on your meats – I’d highly recommend Pow Pow Sauce.
Oh – and the best part? Pow Pow Sauce© is made with 100% All Natural Ingredients and is a Gluten Free, High Fructose Corn Syrup Free and Preservative Free Product. Good stuff.
