Our Elderberry Coffee Barbecue Sauce is another incredible Food Fairy recipe, created with Elderberry Jam made by Norm’s Farms. Full of complex flavors and an Asian flair, the Food Fairy paired it with Tri-Tip beef to make a wonderful pulled beef BBQ. Elderberry Coffee Barbeque Sauce also makes a fantastic grilling sauce for burgers and chicken.
1 ½ TBLSP coconut oil or oil of your choice
1 ½ small red onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and chopped
1 TBLSP ground coriander
1 TBLSP ground cumin
1 TBLSP chili powder
1 jar Elderberry Jam
½ cup ketchup
2 TBLSP Worcestershire sauce
¼ cup balsamic vinegar
½ cup red wine or sherry vinegar
¾ cup strong coffee or 1 TBLSP espresso powder + ¾ cup water
To prepare sauce: Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and just starting to brown-about 2 to 4 minutes. Add garlic, jalapeño and spices and cook, stirring, until fragrant- about 30 seconds. Add Elderberry Jam, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, both vinegars and coffee. Simmer, partially covered, for 30 minutes, adding more coffee if sauce becomes too dry.
