    Default Dry Rubbed Espresso Chili Slow Cooker Ribs

    Found this recipe on a Paleo website. Looks really really yummy and
    very very easy. Think I have to try it.

    Dry-Rubbed Espresso Chili Slow Cooker Ribs
    Fall-off-the-bone tender, juicy ribs packed with a spicy, savory
    flavor that lingers in the mushroom and caramelized onion side you can
    pile up on your favorite burger or chicken breast long after the ribs
    have been devoured.
    Prep Time: 10min or less
    Cooking Time: 8 fuss-free hours on Low in the slow cooker

    Ingredients:

    * full slab of pork ribs (I am sure beef would work fine too, but
    make sure you can cram them in your slow cooker)
    * onions (I used 1.5 reds and 1 huge white one)
    * mushrooms (I used two pre-sliced packages--the more, the
    merrier)
    * the spices*:
    o 1T ground espresso
    o 1T basil
    o 1T chili powder
    o 1T garlic powder
    o 1/2 T kosher salt
    o 1/2 T / 15 grinds or so of black pepper

    *NOTE: any of these spices can be mixed and matched with any of your
    favorites--try whatever you like best!

    Method:

    This is so easy, it's hardly a recipe:

    Food process your mushrooms and onions into slices (or slice by hand
    or buy pre-sliced) and add all of the onions and half of the mushrooms
    to the slow cooker pot. Combine the spices and rub them all over both
    sides and into every nook and cranny of the ribs. Add ribs on top of
    the bed of mushrooms and onions. Add the remaining mushrooms on top of
    the ribs. Lid, set to Low, and forget-about-it for 8hrs. Come home
    or wake up to a house that smells almost as delicious as your meal
    will be! The ribs should be fall-off-the-bone tender. Serve them
    with the mushrooms and onions, if desired, or save those for kicking
    your chicken breast or burgers up to a whole 'nother level.

    It's pretty simple to figure out that they meant espresso beans.

    Although I'm normally partial to pork ribs, I think this would work even
    better with beef ribs, maybe even with beef short ribs (which would
    definitely fit into the slow cooker).

    Why do you have to be vulgar to ask a simple question? I've noticed
    this in a lot of the old timers here, this degeneration into anger or
    vulgarity. Are you just getting old and bitter?

    Likewise, I could ask, who are YOU to pass judgement on ME!? Have you
    been annointed by some diety or almighty ruling body I've not been
    made aware of? Since I know you haven't, why don't you climb down off
    yer pompuous pious pedestal and join the rest of us normal ppl in RFC.
    Sheesh!

    As for the word "Hell" being a vulgarity, I think not. It's a
    specific place, a place with a formal name. As such it's capitalized.
    I'd think that the name of a place well known by the Christion
    religion, who's name is uttered every Sunday by thousands of clergy is
    pretty far from a vulgarity.

    And yes, I'm a bitter old man. I embrace it. I revel in it. Gotta
    problem with that? As a crusty ol' curmudgeon, I get frustrated by
    ppl who should know ...BY NOW!!... that espresso is a coffee drink
    created by a very specific and difficult brewing process. Like
    regular coffee, it is a drink, a liquid, a beverage served in a
    beverage container. It is not a nut or a seed or an herb or a ground
    form thereof. It is not an instant powder, a type of chocolate, a
    type of candy, a confection or a new Lady Gaga video!!

    Besides, I didn't pass judement on anyone or call them names or get
    all bitchy and judgmental, I jes asked a facetious question. If that
    is entirely TOO MUCH for your delicate sensitivities, I suggest you
    killfile me immediately, lest I cause you to instantly burst into
    flame and perish in the unholy whatever the Hell it is yer so afraid
    of.

    Have a nice day.

    BTW, got a good recipe for tabouli and dolmas? I wanna make them
    after I get hummus down pat.

    I don't think I passed judgment. I do wonder why people have stooped
    so much in this group, and it's not just you. There are people I used
    to enjoy reading who pepper just about every post with some sexual
    innuendo or vulgar language or profanity. I'm not interested in that.
    I don't see why it has to come up so frequently in a cooking group.
    Yes, I know it's unmoderated, we're adults, blah, blah, blah, that
    doesn't mean people can't just try to be courteous and nice.

    What was wrong with saying: What's ground espresso? Or, Is that the
    same thing as espresso powder?

    Actually, it is a profanity if used outside of that title of a place
    manner. But you're being specious.

    Well, enjoy it, I guess.

    Not afraid of, fed up. My killfile grows and grows in this group in
    a way it didn't when I first started frequenting it some 16 years ago.
    And not because of the trolls and spammers (though they go there too).
    I'm just tired of people thinking that decency toward others, courtesy
    and politeness are below them.

    Thank you.

    Now who's being specious?

    I have no idea what you native language is. Mahshi waraq? Dolmasi?
    Never mind. I need your input like I need heartburn.

    You must have missed it. Sorry about that. Ranée was duly elected head
    honcho of the cabal (TINC) last week. Her wish is our command.

    You didn't know that? Whoever fails to show up to the election meeting
    *always* gets elected. Nobody wants to be head honcho.
