This is a really easy sauce recipe. Don't let the simmer time (or the coffee!) put you off. It is worth the time and the coffee adds a richness that might surprise you.

This sounds good!! I'm going to give this a try.

3/4 cup Worcestershire Sauce. Is that correct? Seems like a lot. As a fairly strong flavor, it seems like it might overwhelm the other ingredients.

I agree it seems like a lot, but there are a lot of other strong flavors there. It does not overwhelm those flavors at all. Try it! I promise it is awesome!!!
That sounds great - I'd love to try it on beef. :)
