The Brown Sugar and Coffee Barbecue Sauce recipe below from Chef Art Smith sounds like a recipe I would try. I love the smell of coffee more than anything! Well anything except BBQ sauce, so why not combine the two..
Brown Sugar and Coffee Barbecue Sauce
2 tablespoons olive oil 1 3/4 cups chopped white onions 6 garlic cloves, chopped 2 tablespoons minced seeded jalapeño chile 1/2 cup (packed) dark brown sugar 2 tablespoons chili powder 2 tablespoons mild-flavored (light) molasses 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 1 teaspoon ground cumin 1 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes with added puree 1 cup low-salt chicken broth 1 cup freshly brewed strong coffee or 1 tablespoon instant espresso powder dissolved in 1 cup hot water
Heat oil in heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions, garlic, and jalapeño; sauté until onions are tender, about 7 minutes. Add brown sugar, chili powder, molasses, cilantro, and cumin; stir until sugar dissolves. Stir in crushed tomatoes with puree, broth, and coffee; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered until sauce thickens slightly and is reduced to 4 cups, stirring often, about 35 minutes. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper. DO AHEAD: Can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and chill.
