  • 1 cup tomato puree
  • 1 cup brewed coffee
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
  • 2 Tablespoons molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  1. In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients and whisk to combine. Cook over medium heat until the mixture comes to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 25 minutes.

  2. Transfer to a lidded jar and chill in the refrigerator. I recommend letting the sauce sit in the fridge overnight before using to really marry the flavors together. This sauce will last 2 weeks in the fridge if stored in an airtight container.
