What Sauces Can Be Served With Pork?

Any sauce can be served with pork, but many cooks prefer to pair it with sweet, fruity glazes or savory mustard sauces. Pork is commonly served with raspberry reductions and Dijon tarragon sauces in the French tradition.

Citrus fruit sauces made with pineapple, orange or lime pair nicely with pork, and their high citric acid content tenderizes the meat. For special occasions, wine sauces and garlic cream sauces add richness. For more casual affairs, barbecue sauce binds together pulled pork and covers spare ribs. Hoisin sauce, soy sauce, teriyaki sauce or sweet and sour sauce all flavor pork cooked in American-Asian cuisine.
