This sauce was created by Stephen Perry, a contestant on Series 1 of Channel Ten's show Recipe To Riches. 

Unlike most store-bought sauces, this one doesn't contain any added sugar. It's low in sodium, and contains just six ingredients - all of which are vegan. There are no artificial preservatives, colours or flavours used to create Hickory Hollow Smoked Sauce. 

The package states that the sauce's real smokey flavour is perfect for meats such as beef, lamb and pork, however since it contains no meat or dairy, vegans can happily consume this cruelty-free product.

For someone like me who loves spicy foods, I'm sure this sauce will become my go-to for drizzling over my dinner. As the sauce contains 56% smoked red chillies, the smokiness really comes through, adding more flavour than a traditional chilli or sweet chilli sauce. 

Other uses for Hickory Hollow Smoked Sauce:

Use as a mariande for tofu or tempeh 
Add to coconut bacon for that true smokey flavour
Use as a hot sauce over steamed vegetables or homemade fat-free fries
Add to homemade dips and salsas

Would I repurchase this product? Yes. It also happens to be on sale (below half price) this week at Woolworths so I'm planning on stocking up.

  1. Hi Stacie,

    I loved this sauce when it was first released but I only bought one bottle unfortunately. Im out of the country at the moment. Is it back on sale at Woolworths? Might have to organise a few bottles to be posted.
