This BBQ Sauce Recipe made with brewed coffee brings a tangy flavor that’s great with beef or chicken. Simple ingredients for a delicious taste.
With BBQ season officially upon us, I thought I’d share my BBQ Sauce Recipe with Coffee. This sauce has a bit of a kick, but not so tangy that it takes over. It would go well with my BBQ rub or my Caribbean Dry Rub too!
BBQ Sauce Recipe with Coffee
Don’t throw out that extra coffee!
Use any leftover coffee in the coffee pot for this BBQ Sauce recipe. You can whip up this sauce and use it right away, but I’d make it a few hours before so the spices can mingle and get to know each other.
I like making my own condiments because then you know exactly what’s in them. No added sugars, salts, or preservatives.
