Texas Roundup Red Chile Barbcue Sauce for Your Clasic Cowpoke Steak

This barbecue sauce is a might spicier than the one I posted a few days ago. It has a rich and full bodied flavor with hints of smoke and coffee; great depth of flavor. The balance of tart and sweet adds yet another layer of flavor to this sauce making it a wonderful steak, grill and barbecue sauce. This may be just a touch too spicy for the kids but of course that depends on your family's tastes. Use it to lightly marinate your rib eye steak or your favorite cut of beef before broiling or grilling and serve with additional sauce for dipping on the side if desired. Another great recipe to keep handy for those summer days ahead. I hope you enjoy.

Texas Roundup Red Chile Barbecue Sauce for Your Classic Cowpoke Steak


1 Tbsp. canola oil
1/2 cup onion, diced
8 garlic cloves, minced
1 - 8 ounce can no salt added tomato sauce + 2 Tbsp. water
1 Tbsp. chile ancho powder
1 Tbsp. chile molido powder
1 tsp. chile chipotle powder
1/3 cup Splenda
2 tsp. molasses
2 tsp. spicy brown mustard
1/4 tsp. salt (optional)
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1/2 cup very strong coffee
4 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. mesquite liquid smoke

Saute the onion and garlic in the canola oil on medium heat until onions are translucent. Add the assorted chile powders and cook for a minute or two while stirring. Add the rest of the ingredients, bring to simmer and reduce heat. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Carefully pour mixture into a blender that has had the small insert removed from the cap. Cover hole with a clean dish towel and pulse to puree until sauce is smooth. Return sauce to pan and bring to simmer for another 3 to 4 minutes. If using the sauce as a marinade let it cool completely first before applying it to meat.
