What is finising sauce? How do you use it and on what meats?
Also do you have any good recipes?


I grill therefore I am.....not hungy.


  • I'm sure I'll get shot for this because I'm no expert at all on finishing sauces.  But, to me:

    On ribs, it would be a BBQ sauce, put on 15 or more minutes before pulling.

    On pork chops, I like a pepper jelly.

    I don't think I put a finishing sauce on anything else.

  • You are right Gary. It is any sauce added at plating basically. It could be a pan sauce, pasta sauce any of the mother sauces or their derivatives. Anything really

    steven, to be more exact, it is any sauce added at the finish.
    i prefer starter sauce myself. it's like tartar sauce, but different

  • Not much left after plating. If you, say were doing a hollandaise sauce and you plated and then broiled to finish it would still be a finishing sauce. That little that what he meant?

    i was just goofing on you steven.  just implying that there's a reason it's called finishg sauce, not middle sauce, or start sauce.
