BBQ Chicken
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
Onion 1 C
Garlic clove 2
Butter 3 Tbsp
Worcestershire sauce 2 Tbsp
Sugar 2 tsp
Chili powder 1 tsp
Dry mustard 1/2 tsp
Red pepper flakes 1/2 tsp
Vinegar 1 C
Coffee 1/4 C
Tomato sauce 1/2 C
Mince onion and garlic very fine. Combine with butter, Worcestershire sauce, sugar, chili powder, dry mustard, red pepper flakes, vinegar, and coffee.
Bring to a boil and stir in tomato sauce. Boil 5 more minutes.
Reserve 1/2 C sauce and use remainder to marinate meat 3 hours at room temperature or overnight in the refrigerator.
Baste with marinade while cooking.
Serve reserved sauce at the table.

Note: the cold coffee can be as strong as you like. Even if it's been left warming in the coffee pot all day, the intensity of the flavor will work well here. Instant espresso is a substitute for strong cold coffee.
