How to Make It

Step 1    

In a large saucepan, melt the butter in the oil. Add the onion, garlic and serrano and cook over moderately low heat, stirring occasionally, until the onion is softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook the sauce over low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Step 2    

Scrape the sauce into a food processor and puree until smooth. Transfer to a bowl and let cool, then cover and refrigerate overnight to allow the sauce to mellow.

Make Ahead

The barbecue sauce can be refrigerated for up to 2 weeks.

Review Body: Sauce turmed out delicious. I added 3T sugar because I wanted a sweeter sauce and it was just the right hint of sweet.

Review Body: I made another espresso barbecue sauce this weekend and didn't feel that it had enough espresso flavor to be noticeable. Is this recipe calling for a literal cup of espresso, or a serving of espresso, which would be much less?
