Old Mule home


walking_mule.jpgOld Mule Steak & Onions

My son Chris, who is a culinary school graduate, loves your dipping sauce and puts it on the table almost every night. The other night he sliced up a leftover grilled sirloin steak. He sauteed that with some sliced onions. After the onions became translucent, he stirred in a couple spoonfuls of Old Mule. He said it was delicious.

Here is a picture of me and my husband on the Chesapeake & Ohio Canal (National Historic Park) in Washington, DC walking with two of the park's 6 mules.

Thank you again.

"Mule" Chips

This is a very fast and easy recipe. Perfect for a quick party platter. You need one bag of your favorite tortilla chips and a cup of OLD MULE sauce. Dip the chips in the sauce and enjoy! I know
what you must be thinking, BBQ sauce?! But trust us. "Mule" Chips are wonderful!!

"Mule" Wings

Some well meaning (but less informed) people some times refer to these as "buffalo wings." By any name they're good.

Start with as many wings (actually chicken wings) as you wish. Place on a pan and bake in the oven for 30 minutes at 350F. Remove from oven, baste with Old Mule and grill until crispy. You may want to continue basting. Serve with Old Mule on the side for dipping and lots of napkins.

Old Mule Pizza

1 pizza dough (fresh or can)
8 ounces (more or less) grated Monterey Jack cheese
6-8 ounces cooked and shredded boneless chicken breast
1 medium Vidalia onion (sliced)
1 cup (more or less) Old Mule

Spread the pizza dough on a pizza pan following instructions on package. We sprinkled a little garlic pepper on the pan under the dough. Cover the dough with Old Mule sauce. Spread the cheese over the sauce evenly. Spread the onion and chicken pieces on top of the cheese. Steve cooks the chicken in a pan with some Old Mule before shredding it for the pizza. We used a package of precooked and cut chicken breast to keep it simple. Bake according to the instructions on the pizza dough package. Enjoy!!

"Mule" Burgers

Don't panic! This is not as radical as it sounds. Many of our friends told us they tried this and really enjoyed it. It adds something a little different to your cookout. Mix a little Old Mule Sauce in with your ground meat (beef, turkey or venison) before you make the patties. Then cook your burgers as you normally do. It's great.You may also want to try serving Old Mule as a condiment on your burgers. Happy grilling!

Meatballs a la Mule

This is great for party platters during the
holidays, tailgating or a for the dinner table.

Start with your favorite meatball recipe or
you can use ours as follows:

1 1/2 lbs of ground beef (or ground whatever!)
1/4 c minced onions
1/2 c bread crumbs
1 egg
1 tsp salt
1 Tablespoon garlic pepper
1/4 cup Old Mule Sauce

Combine ingredients. Shape into balls. Brown in pan. Drain fat and cover with additional Old Mule Sauce. Simmer at least another 30 minutes. Or you can put the browned meatballs in a crock pot, add enough Old Mule Sauce to cover the meatballs and put lid on crock pot. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or high for 1-1/2 to 2-1/2 hours. We have had lots of compliments on this recipe! Enjoy!!

"Mule" Roast

OK, we don't really recommend roasting mule. But Deedie from Shelby, NC recommended we try this. We did and it was delicious.

Start with a nice plump roast (venison, beef, lamb, or pork...we used eye of round beef roast). Pour some Old Mule Sauce in the bottom of a crock pot. Coat the roast with some more Old Mule. Cook on low over night or during the day until done. Slice and pour the juice from the crock pot on top. ENJOY!

Thank you Deedie!

Old Mule Baby Back Ribs

Start with Pork Baby Back Ribs (allow at least 1 pound per person). Coat the ribs heavily with Old Mule Sauce (notice WE say "heavily!"). Place the ribs in oven bags available from most grocery stores and seal according to the bag directions (DO NOT use regular plastic bags. This would be very bad). Bake in the oven at 325F for 2 hours.

Carefully remove ribs from bags and place on platter. Apply a fresh coat of Old Mule Sauce to the ribs. Place ribs on preheated grill and crispen to your preference. Serve with additional Old Mule Sauce for dipping and lots of napkins. ENJOY!!
