Apple Cider Vinegar Is The Secret Ingredient For Copycat Arby's Sauce
Arby's Sauce is essentially barbecue sauce that starts with a ketchup base. Copycat recipe developer Jason Goldstein says apple cider vinegar gives the sauce its unique taste.
Goldstein says it gets extra flavor from salt, pepper, and garlic powder, but apple cider vinegar is somewhat sweeter and fruitier than white or red wine vinegar.
While Goldstein's copycat Arby's Sauce recipe does not specify a brand, he prefers Bragg, which touts itself as a health product due to the fact that it includes the "mother."
Mother, which is a cloudy mass of yeast and benign bacteria, has been credited with performing all manner of health miracles, but there really isn't much research to back this up.
Even if there are any benefits of apple cider vinegar, with or without the mother, you'd need to consume at least a teaspoon per day to see any improvement in your health.
As each tablespoon of copycat Arby's Sauce only contains about ⅛ teaspoon of vinegar, it seems safe to say that you can use any kind of apple cider vinegar you wish.
