What do you do after you download photos and see that every single one is out of focus? Noooooooo, we don’t scream at the top of our lungs, stomp our feet, flail our arms, and throw a tantrum like a 5 year old.
Ok, AFTER we do that – –
– – We simply chalk it up as an “oops”, move on, and hopefully see what the $#!*%!! is going on with our lens.
It seems that the motor is shot on my autofocus lens, the one that I RELY on because it has a built in stabilizer, and I’m now forced to switch to manual focus. Oh joy. I’m just going to have to get out my other lenses for awhile, because these just won’t do. Sorry that they’re out of focus, folks. I was so upset, and almost didn’t even post this. But, the ribs came out SO DELICIOUS, that I thought, you know, that’s the most important thing. Some recipes that you see on sites such as Pinterest have GORGEOUS photos, but are epic fails. This….is the opposite. FANTASTIC flavor….epic photo failure.
Sooooooo, moving on. Not gonna sweat the small stuff. 😉
Because, these ribs just plain ROCKED the whole house!! Including this one, I now have 8 rib recipes on this little blog I call my “home away from home”! And though you’ll find that they’re all truly damn good ribs, this one is definitely in the top 3! (*I even have another new one in the works, so stay tuned for that one, too!!) 😉
I really had a lot of fun making, tasting, and testing this sauce; and to me, it’s one of my better barbecue sauces! As you can already see by the title, there’s a little piece of heaven in every bite! The richness of dark chocolate, a little heat from chipotle pepper, and an earthy kick of espresso in the back!
Even the rub to start them with had us drooling while they were slow-baking in the oven! But that sauce….OH that sauce….simmering on the stove….PURE….HEAVEN!!!!
Rich, thick, velvety creamy smooth…..OH YEA.
So, if you’re looking for a new rib recipe to try out, something different that’ll WOW even the pickiest of guests….you just found it.
These don’t need anything fussy to go alongside, either. Let them be the shining star and keep the sides simple. I served ours with my standby coleslaw and some pretty darned awesome fries that reminded us of a particular popular restaurant’s fries! (Coming soon!!) And this combo worked really well and was plenty enough food to feed a small army!
Seriously, I can’t wait for you to give this a try! And the ingredients are all found at our local Walmart store, so nothing fancy-schmancy that you have to order!
So pick up the ingredients tonight at the store,
and enjoy these decadent ribs this weekend!!
