Recipe Details

This traditional Texas campfire legend came from the days when cowboys cooked eggs and ham steaks over the fire in a cast iron skillet then deglazed the skillet with their strong coffee and grounds and poured it over the ham.

  1. In a pot over high heat, combine water and coffee. Bring to a boil.
  2. Remove from heat and steep for 10 minutes. Strain through chinois into a bowl.
  3. Add BBQ sauce, brown sugar, molasses, and salt. Whisk together until well mixed. Hold refrigerated for service.


This recipe can be taken to the next level with the addition of brown gravy or beef demi-glace.
