I love this sauce because its thin and doesn't have a base of ketchup or mustard. Its a real barbecue marinade/sauce and made to tenderize any meat before grilling. You may also baste lightly while grilling and then serve some on the side with your meal. I found this recipe in the newspaper years ago.
- 4 teaspoons butter
- 2 medium onions, chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced
- 2 teaspoons chili powder
- 2 tablespoons ground coriander
- 1 cup prepared strong coffee
- 1⁄4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tablespoons soy sauce
- 1 cup tomato sauce
- 1⁄4 cup cider vinegar
- 1⁄4 cup lime juice
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup apple cider or 1⁄2 cup apple juice
- Heat butter in large saucepan over medium heat.
- Add onions and saute until tender, 3-5 minutes.
- Add garlic, jalapenos, chili powder, and coriander.
- Saute, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking until vegetables are softened, about 3 minutes.
- Add coffee, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, tomato sauce, vinegar, lime juice, brown sugar, and cider.
- Reduce heat and simmer mixture gently for 30 minutes.
- Remove from heat and let cool slightly.
- Puree in batches in blender or a food processor until smooth.
- This sauce is thin and is in the"Carolina" barbecue style which is more of a marinade/tenderizer.
This marinade deserves more than 5 stars! I used this to marinate some pork ribs a couple months ago, they were fantastic, so I am using again today for chicken. This marinade would be great for any kind of meat. Thanks so much for posting, I will definitely be using this over and over again!
The party is over and ALL the chicken is gone. The marinade was fantastic and people raved about the chicken. A 10 star keeper!
