Basic Barbecue Sauce

July/August 1994

Your rating: None Average: 2.7 (30 votes)

Bottled barbecue sauces are often loaded with sodium and high-fructose corn syrup. In ours, strong coffee balances the sweetness of molasses and orange juice while the chiles and hot sauce provide subtle heat.

"Ketchup & Worcestershire sauce both have a fair amount of Sodium in them!"

Ketchup & Worcestershire sauce both have a fair amount of "Sodium" in them and this came up under a google search for "Sodium Free Barbecue Sauce."

FYI - Simply Heinz ketchup

FYI - Simply Heinz ketchup and Lea & Perrins Worcestershire sauce do not have high fructose corn syrup in them.

this isn't a problem if you purchase corn syrup-free ketchup and worcestershire sauce from places like Sprouts or Whole Foods.

I think you should have given the definition of the strongly brewed coffee! I used 3 tbsp per 3/4 of instant coffee (which is about 3x of the normal doze, worked great for me in a banana-coffee bread), and I had to increase, and increase, adn increase the recipe to get rid of at least some bitterness by adding water and tomato paste! It was not fun, and the sauce was still bitter even with dilution. Not all of us are coffee drinkers who instinctevly know what 'strong coffee' is!

no one should ever use

no one should ever use instant coffee for anything.. that is why you can't get rid of the bitter taste... a good dark roast brew or espresso would work great
