In This Recipe


  1. Heat oven to 400 F.
  2. Sprinkle ribs with salt and pepper. Dredge in flour.
  3. Heat oil in a Dutch oven, and brown ribs on all sides.
  4. Deglaze the pan with wine and coffee, scraping up the brown bits. Continue heating sauce until it is reduced to 1/2.
  5. Return the meat, along with the remaining ingredients, to the pot. Bake in a 400 degree oven until the meat is falling off the bone, about 3 1/2 hours.
