Cocoa Five Spice BBQ Sauce

Last night we had the pleasure of participating in the Zinfandel Advocates and Producers tasting event at Fort Mason in SF.  BR Cohn asked us to pair with them.  I created a Cocoa Five Spice Smoked Pork Shoulder on Polenta with this BBQ sauce.  Boy was it a hit.  Many asked for the recipe, so here is our secret sauce.


Cocoa Five Spice BBQ Sauce
2 cups ketchup
1 cup water
½ cup apple cider vinegar
5 Tbs light brown sugar
5 Tbs sugar
½ Tbs fresh ground black pepper
½ Tbs onion powder
½ Tbs ground mustard
1 Tbs Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp liquid smoke
3 Tbs Cocoa Powder
3 Tbs Chinese five spice, ground
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips

Combine all ingredients and simmer 45 mintue to 1 hour
