Honey Mustard Balsamic Bourbon Glaze

1. In a sauce pan over medium heat, whisk together 3 cups bourbon and 1 cup prepared mustard.

2. Continuing to whisk, add 1 cup brown sugar. Whisk until the sugar is blended completely.

3. With heat still set to medium, add 2 cups honey stir to thoroughly blend. Add ½ cup of orange juice with ¼ cup of Balsamic Vinegar. Simmer the bourbon sauce for 20 minutes. It is important to allow the sauce to simmer for this length of time or the bourbon will overpower the other ingredients.

4. Remove Honey mustard bourbon sauce from heat. You may use it immediately brush over Tri Tip, pork or beef, or allow to cool to room temperature and store sauce in a covered glass container in refrigerator. 

Serve and enjoy. Pair with potatoes, corn, roasted broccoli or vegetables.
