Coffee BBQ Sauce

The chef-in-our-midst correctly pointed out that we were missing a sauce category, so he’s remedied that. If his other sauces are any indication, I’ll be drinking this like it’s a beverage in no time.

1 yellow onion minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
pinch of salt
1 1/2 tablespoons of coriander
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sherry vinegar
1 cup strong coffee
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup tomato juice
1 heaping teaspoon Chipotle powder

  1. Sweat the onion in the olive oil with a good pinch of salt until soft.
  2. Add coriander, brown sugar, vinegar, and coffee and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Add ketchup, tomato juice, and Chipotle powder.
  4. Simmer for 2 hours. Strain, discard the solids, and let cool.
