Use this coffee barbecue sauce as a marinade or finishing sauce for grilled or baked pork, beef, or chicken. The sauce may be covered and refrigerated up to 2 weeks.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup brewed espresso or strong, dark coffee
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped, about 1 cup
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 3 fresh hot chili peppers, such as jalapeno, or hotter if desired, seeded
  • 2 Tablespoons hot dry mustard mixed with 1 tablespoon warm water
  • 2 Tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 Tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons chili powder

Preparation:

Put espresso or coffee, ketchup, vinegar, brown sugar, onion, garlic, chile peppers, dry mustard, Worcestershire sauce, cumin, and chili powder in a small pot, stir them together, and bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Lower the heat so the mixture is just simmering and let simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat, let the mixture cool, then puree it in a blender or food processor fitted with the steel blade.

The barbecue sauce can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Best Sauce, Member samuelhrussell

Awesome especially with buffalo fillets. Its best to reduce with beef broth. Just add the sauce to beef broth and simmer for a few mins. This way you can control the hotness and thickness. Its too strong for me without adding the broth. It akso makes more ""gravy"" this way.
