  1. Combine yellow mustard, white vinegar, balsamic vinegar, water, sugar, chili powder, cayenne pepper, and black pepper in a saucepan; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 30 minutes. Add ketchup and soy sauce and simmer for 10 minutes more.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Cover pork with it and slow cook. Take the pork out, pull, and serve with more sauce. Save all the pork juice for a fantastic gravy - the fat will be too good to waste!
