I've made this many times. It's a sweet sauce and I loved this stuff, actually like it better than any regular bottled version.

This recipe is for an old-fashioned chunky style sauce, if you like smooth version puree in blender or FP.

Prep 3 minutes; Cook time: 15 minutes

1/4 c hot water +
1 t instant coffee (or 1/4 strong brewed coffee)
1 cup tomato sauce
1/2 c onions, chopped
2 T tomato paste
3 T red wine or apple cider vinegar
2 T Worcestershire sauce
3 T dijon mustard
1 t liquid smoke
1/4 t cayenne pepper
Tabasco sauce (optional)
2 T Somersweet* (old formula amount -5x sweeter than sugar - adj substitutions accordingly)
salt and freshly ground pepper

Add water and coffee granules together. Pour into 2 1/2 qt saucepan. Add all ingredients except sweetener, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce to simmer for 15 minutes. Stir in sweetener. Season with salt and pepper. Let cool, cover, and refrigerate. Keeps for a week in the fridge.

*This recipe as written was for the old formula of Somersweet that was 5 times sweeter than sugar, the new version measures 1-1 with sugar. Adjust your choice of sweetener accordingly. I'll admit I haven't tried the new SomerSweet, but I really loved the old version as the best no sugar/insulin spiking substitution I'd tried. FYI, I've never made this with any other sweetener. (This is *so* much better than the bottled version she sells.)
