we roast coffee. via an Ambex YM5. in the garage

we therefore have a lot of coffee sitting around so I had an idea, roast it and rub it on whatever meat was in the fridge, turns out we had a mass of ribs

first i roasted a bit of Tarrazu RFA  and searched for a recipe. found this recipe for rib eye steaks but thought it would do. Bobby Flay I think?

1/4 cup ancho chile powder
1/4 cup finely ground expresso-roast coffee beans
2 tbsp sweet paprika
2 tbsp dark brown sugar
1 tbsp dry mustard
1 tbsp salt
1 tbsp ground black pepper
1 tbsp dired oregano
1 tbsp ground coriander
1 tspn ground ginger
2 tspn chile de arbor powder or cayenne (optional)

didn’t have dried oregano or corriander so i threw in something green, sweet basil?

The direstions were ”rub it on” Hm

i removed the membrane stuff off the back of the ribs first (scrape knife along bone to start then peel back) salted and peppered and cooked for about 3 hrs at 350 with the lid on.

THEN i rubbed, Bobby!

bbqued for about 7-10 minutes on each side…well i didn’t. Blair did. it’s cold out there!

no words needed

rated a 9/10 by the family. maybe a little more sugar to balance espresso
