Lightly sweet and citrusy, it strikes a perfect balance between spice and acidity and is just hot enough to give your recipes a lively kick without masking the flavour of food.
Some precautions are required during preparation, such as wearing a gas mask as protection against the pepper fumes! All Joe Beef sauces are produced by hand, in small batches, following the restaurant’s recipe as if they were prepared there. No sauce passes through the warehouse doors without having received Dave and Fred’s seal of approval.
Joe Beef sauces are produced locally in the greater Montreal area.
The artisans behind the product
David McMillan and Fred Morin are long-time friends who, 10 years ago, at a turning point in their careers, decided to do things differently. Having acquired a strong reputation at the Globe restaurant, the two chefs wanted to create a casual space where gourmets would enjoy the best seafood, meats and wines. In short, an unpretentious restaurant that would satisfy the most refined palates.
Joe Beef hot sauce is the perfect zesty complement to oysters. Spicy but not too hot, it also makes an ideal companion for a variety of other dishes such as meats, tacos, salads and seafood.
