This recipe was FABULOUS!!! So quick and easy and soooo yummy! My neighborhood grocer did not have instant espress I used a spoon more of instant coffee and "cooking" maple syrup plus the rest of the ingredients and it was a HUGE hit with the family and I can't wait to impress guests :o)

We did not like this. It was way too strong with coffee flavor, and ended up being very similar to an overly-thick terriyaki sauce.

This recipe was absolutely awesome! The flavor was out of this world, fantastic! I will use this recipe often. Delicious! There aren't enough adjectives. Thank You!

Great sauce for New York Strip steaks. I usually never make a sauce, as I let the flavor of the steaks stand out. I doubled it, and it still was not enough!

Yummy though I did not use espresso. Reduced 1/2 cup dark coffee (~half), then added 1/4 cup light soya sauce, 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, 1/4 cup brandy. Reduced liquids again in half and added a sprig of rosemary at end for additional flavour and let sit for 10 minutes. Great on grilled beef tenderloin
