    sugarpea's Note:

    If you don't like coffee, don't worry about it. You'll never know it's in the sauce. The ribs will be sweet, tangy and tender. You can finish them in the oven or on the grill.

      The sauce is really delicious! It has a very unique flavor to it - (must be the espresso). The first part of the instructions don't say how hot to cook at, so I baked them at 325degrees for about 2 hours. I turned the oven up to 400degrees, and continued with the recipe. There are no left overs. I chose this recipe for the "This Little Piggy" event - April 2009 ... thanks sugarpea :p

      I can't believe I didn't review this sooner. This is a great recipe and good for those who don't have outdoor grills. The sauce is not overly sweet and you really don't taste the espresso. This is a fun recipe and great for the summer or winter!A must try in my book
