This Kenyan Coffee Barbeque sauce is a perfect mixture of both sweet and spicy flavors. The use of coffee in this recipe may sound unusual, but coffee has a reputation for bringing out the best in other flavors; lucky for us, its talents are not limited to chocolate. Besides its delicious flavor, the Kenyan Grand Cru coffee grinds offer an interesting aesthetic component to this sauce. The tiny specs of finely ground coffee are not gritty or texturally notable but they will definitely attract a lot of attention, and give your guests a clue as to what that wonderful flavor is.
Marinating your proteins and hearty vegetables allows you to improve your food in several ways. One, you’re of course infusing your ingredients with lots of wonderful flavors. Two, any acidity in the marinade tenderizes your meats and proteins by starting to break down some of the tougher fibers. And three, you’re giving your ingredients lots of great moisture to soak up; moisture that won’t be lost during the cooking process.
Please remember that our marinades are perishable and should be refrigerated after opening.
