Make Ahead Barbecue Sauce
This sauce can be kept safely in the refrigerator for the next 6 weeks. If you taste it by itself with a spoon, it has a funny flavor. Trust me, once you brush it on hot grilled chicken, beef or pork and heat through, it is delicious.
1 1/2 cups catsup
1 cup strong black coffee
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
In a medium nonreactive pan, combine all ingredients. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat, simmer, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened. ( about 8 to 10 minutes).Let sauce cool to room temperature in a
covered, nonreactive container. ( about 30 minutes). Store, covered, in the refrigerator. Makes about 3 cups.
