½ lb. Bacon, finely diced
1 small Yellow Onion, finely diced
¼ cup Brewed Coffee
3 tbsp. Soy Sauce
2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp. Brown Sugar
2 tbsp. Sugar
as needed Kosher Salt and Black Pepper
In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook bacon until crisp (about 5 minutes). Stir occasionally and then transfer to a paper towel lined plate to drain. Drain all but 1 tbsp. of bacon fat from skillet and add onion to cook until softened (about 4 minutes). Return bacon to skillet and add the coffee, soy sauce, vinegar and both sugars. Continue cooking until liquid is reduced and jam is thick and glossy (about 5 minutes). Season with salt and pepper and scrape into a bowl to cool to room temperature. Spread on grilled bun bottom before adding your burger.
Note: Different flavor of bacon and/or onions will make a little difference in the final product. So use the ones you prefer when making this recipe.
