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.
- 1/2 cup espresso (brewed, or strong, dark coffee)
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar (light brown, firmly packed)
- 1 onion (peeled and finely chopped, about 1 cup)
- 2 cloves garlic (peeled and crushed)
- 3 chili peppers (fresh, seeded, hot such as jalapeño, or hotter if desired)
- 2 tablespoons mustard (dry hot, mixed with 1 tablespoon warm water)
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons cumin (ground)
- 2 tablespoons chili powder
Gather the ingredients.
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.
Puree in a blender.
Use immediately or store for later use.
Use Caution When Blending Hot Ingredients
Steam expands quickly in a blender, and can cause ingredients to splatter everywhere or cause burns. To prevent this, fill the blender only one-third of the way up, vent the top, and cover with a folded kitchen towel while blending.
- This barbecue sauce can be covered and refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.
