Ribs with Espresso Barbecue Sauce

Serves: 5
Total Calories: 854


2 tablespoons hot Mexican-style chili powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
4 pounds baby back pork ribs, cut into serving-size pieces
1 (12-ounce) bottle dark beer
1 (18-ounce) bottle favorite barbecue sauce
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons brown sugar, packed
1 tablespoon instant coffee granules


Whisk seasonings together in a small bowl to blend; rub mixture over ribs. Place ribs in a large heavy roasting pan. Bring beer to a boil over medium heat in a large saucepan; cook until reduced to one cup, about 5 minutes. Pour beer around ribs; cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees until fork-tender, about 1-1/2 hours. Combine remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Simmer until slightly thickened, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Brush ribs with barbecue sauce; grill on medium-hot coals for 3 minutes. Turn ribs; brush again with sauce and grill for an additional 3 to 4 minutes, until heated through. Bring remaining sauce to a boil; serve with ribs.

Tip: Using jute, bundle fresh herbs together such as thyme, sage or rosemary to create an herb basting brush...it really adds flavor to grilled foods.
