Cooking Direction:

Red Chile Paste

Makes 3 cups

  1. In a large saucepan, place the ancho and Mexican chiles. Pour in the chicken stock.  Add the onion and garlic. 

  2. Over high heat, bring the stock to a boil.  Reduce heat and allow to simmer for about 15 minutes or until the peppers have absorbed some liquid and have become soft.

  3. Put the pepper mixture, cooking liquid and Chipotle peppers into a blender.  Blend on low speed, increasing the high speed as the puree combines.

BarBQ Sauce

  1. In a large heavy saucepan heat the oil over medium heat and add the onions and garlic.  Sauté until they begin to wilt. 

  2. Add the ketchup and chile paste and sauté for 4 minutes.  Add brown sugar, brown mustard, kosher salt, cider vinegar, strong coffee, Worcestershire Sauce, and lemon juice.

  3. Stir and simmer for 30-40 minutes.  As the sauce thickens, stir more often so it does not scorch.

  4. Remove the sauce from the heat and allow to cool.  Place the sauce in a blender and puree. 

  5. Keep in the refrigerator.

Preheat grill to medium-high temperature.

  1. Brush the steaks very lightly with the BarBQ sauce and grill them to the desired degree of doneness.

  2. Warm the remaining sauce and serve it on the sides.
