Mountain Man Roasted Habanero Sauce Review
The Mountain Man sauces never cease to amaze me. I’m a big fan. I’ve tried several and have never been disappointed. The Mountain Man Fire Roasted Habanero Hot Sauce is one of my favorites of the batch and definitely one of the hottest.
There’s very little to get between you and the wood-roasted habaneros that make up the bulk of Mountain Man Fire Roasted Habanero Sauce flavor. Throw in a little red wine vinegar and a pinch of salt. That’s about it. What you get here is a sauce that has a rich, deep reddish-brown color, and enticing smoky hot aroma, and bits of charred habanero with some seeds thrown in for good measure. One whiff will make your mouth water and your forehead damp.
Like any good hot sauce, Mountain Man Fire Roasted Habanero Hot Sauce doesn’t sacrifice flavor for heat. Any pepper sauce connoisseur will tell you that combining flavor and heat is essential to making a sauce that will be remembered. This one pulls it off on a grand scale. Warm enough for die-hard chili heads and enough flavor to make the connoisseurs do a happy dance.
I thought this might make a good steak sauce. I pulled out the stops and took a filet mignon out of the freezer. I keep a good supply of various steak cuts on hand to compliment the sauces in my cabinet. I threw the filet in the broiler for ten minutes, took it out still pink inside, and set it on my plate, then I surrounded it with a river of this roasted habanero sauce and started cutting and dipping.
The filet is a tender, delicate piece of meat with a flavor more suited to straight butter, so trying this sauce with it was a gamble. Not a problem. Mountain Man Fire Roasted Habanero Sauce makes a dynamite steak sauce. There’s just enough punch going on to give your mouth a flavor kick, but not enough to overpower even the finest cut of meat.
Another use I found for this sauce was grilled salmon painted with a mixture of Mountain Man Fire Roasted Habanero Hot Sauce and a splash of lemon and some butter.
If you’re looking for a smoky habanero taste that works well with a variety of foods and provides a pretty intense heat intake, look no further than this well-balanced sauce.
