Country Bob (AKA Bob Edson) created an All Purpose Sauce back in 1968 which he began to sell in 1977 and will still today absolutely knock your socks off. It is similar to a steak sauce and can be used as such but it is so much more than that. It can be used on french fries, for grilling, as a marinate and in a slew of different recipes. When I received my bottles of Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce it came with this handy recipe collection pamphlet. There were several recipes that sounded delicious but the Corn Pone Pie is what really caught my eye. I decided to try it out on my family on a recent evening and my husband swooned. He said it was one of the very best things I have ever made and my three year old sons christened it delicious. Thank you Country Bob! The recipe itself was easy and nothing fancy at all but the secret dear readers is in the sauce. The sauce had just the perfect blend of flavorings to make this meal an all star in my otherwise ho-hum track record. I felt like a culinary rock star! I am reprinting this recipe here (with permission of course) so you too can have Country Bob to thank for major kitchen raves with very little elbow grease!
Corn Pone Pie1 lb ground beef 2 T. chili powder
1/3 C. chopped onion 3/4 tsp salt
1 T. shortening 1 (16 oz) can kidney beans
1 C. stewed tomatoes 1 (6 oz) pkg corn bread mix
1 C. Country Bob's AP Sauce
Brown the beef in a skillet with the onion and shortening until brown and crumbly and then drain. Stir in tomatoes, Country Bob's All Purpose Sauce, chili powder and salt. Simmer, covered for 15 minutes. Drain 1/2 of the liquid from the kidney beans and then add the beans w/ the remaining liquid to the skillet. Pour the mixture into a greased casserole. Prepare the corn bread batter according to package directions and then pour the batter over the ground beef mixture. Bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 6 servings.
