Good ribs don’t always need sauce, but this Coffee Mop Sauce gives that extra zing of flavor. It’s great for brisket, too.
This is a thinner-style sauce, hence why you might need a sort of “mop” to slather it on, early and often while you cook.


1 cup beer
1 cup apple cider
1/3 cup cider vinegar
1/3 cup coffee
1/3 cup beef or chicken stock
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoons hot sauce
2 teaspoons coarse salt (kosher or sea), or more to taste
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

To make the sauce, place all ingredients in a nonreactive bowl and whisk to mix. Taste for seasoning, adding more salt and pepper as necessary.
