Coffee & Bourbon BBQ Sauce May 30, 2011

Yup, that’s right.  Coffee and bourbon.  Perhaps we should have thrown in a little chocolate to make it the triumvirate of sauces.  This little gem was mixed up during one of the cooking nights we, the founders of this blog, had.  It came from A year of inconvenience and I think she got it from The gourmet cookbook…  I’ve been known to mix it in with meat before barbecuing, or just at the end so it doesn’t burn when using open flame.  Cheers!  Ren

BBQ sauce1 cup strong brewed coffee
½ cup bourbon (We used Jack Daniels.  Then drank some.  See name of our blog….)
½ cup packed light brown sugar
½ cup soy sauce
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce

Throw all in a saucepan and cook over medium heat (a simmer) for about 30-45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cook sauce down to about 1 cup so the flavors can develop nicely – note that sauce will be thin.
