Last week while catching up on blog reading I came across a kick-ass recipe for espresso BBQ sauce over on Shutterbean, a consistently excellent source of foodie inspiration. Over the holiday weekend, my butcher had a special on ribs so it seemed like the universe was trying to tell me something.
I cooked up a batch of the sauce which was fairly quick, very easy, and really good. I slathered it on ribs for four and still had two jars of leftovers! (Tip: unless you’re roasting a pig, a half-batch should be more than enough.) The sauce tasted great, with garlic, ketchup, lots of honey, and the espresso adding a distinct but not overpowering flavor.
