Branston Pickle Recipes?

The other night I decided to purchase a few of the massive pork chops I saw at the market, but being in the mood for something heartier than chops and kraut, I opted to make a mushroom gravy to top off the pork. The recipe I had called for Worcestershire sauce, but inspired by the intrepid chefs on Chowhound, I decided to start subbing ingredients. A little cayenne here, a dash of paprika, garlic and onions and a heaping teaspoon of Branston pickle. And that teaspoon made a whole world of difference! My mushroom gravy went from blandness to savory and sweet. Now I’m eager to find other non-traditional uses for Branston pickle.
Anyone have any favorite recipes that call for some Branston pickle?
I don't really see myself cooking with it. I live in the UK and actually prefer the "farmhouse" pickles and chutneys that you can buy in specialty food shops. Plus, pickle is a bit lumpy, so I'm not sure how I'd like that. But flavor-wise, I bet it could add something to slow-cooked meat dishes like pot roast or brisket.
