Coffee Molasses Barbecue Sauce

Make this!  Seriously!  This recipe is taken from the LCBO Food & Drink magazine (early summer 2012).  I used this sauce over chicken, but the recipe says it’s excellent over steak, ribs or beef burgers. If I ate red meat again…this would be the cat’s ass over a nice BBQ steak. 


1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup strong brewed coffee
1/3 cup fancy molasses
1/4 cup grated onion
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp Dijon mustard
2 tsp finely minced ginger
1/4 tsp cayenne pepper

1.  Place all ingredients in a medium saucepan and set over medium heat.  Simmer sauce, stirring occasionally, then more frequently as sauce begins to thicken to a barbecue sauce consistency, about 8 minutes.
2.. As sauce cools, it will thicken a bit more.  When using barbecue sauce, brush on in the last minutes of barbecuing and turn frequently, otherwise the sugars will burn.
Makes 2 cups
