Cal’s Espresso Style Ribs

Make tonight a rib night with Cal’s Espresso Style Ribs! Check out our tasty Cal Flame recipe below:

For the ribs:
3 racks of baby back ribs
Gray salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the sauce:
1 cup honey
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup espresso
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 cups Tuscan Barbecue Sauce

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.

Cut each rack of ribs in half; season with salt and pepper. Stack the ribs on a foil-covered baking sheet, in two piles of 3 pieces. Bake in the oven about 2-1/2 hours, or until tender, rotating the ribs every 30 minutes. Remove the ribs from the oven and cover them with foil to keep them moist and tender.

For the sauce:
In a bowl, whisk together the honey, soy sauce, vinegar, ketchup, and espresso. Place the olive oil and garlic in a small sauté pan. Cook over low heat for about 1 minute or until it turns a golden brown. Remove from heat. Add to the honey mixture. Place the honey mixture in a saucepan and bring to a simmer for 15 minutes to blend the flavors.

To complete the ribs:
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F, or preheat a Cal Flame grill. Brush the BBQ sauce on both sides of the ribs, and arrange them in a single layer. Turn and baste the ribs as they cook. Remove when the ribs are glazed and caramelized, about 15 minute.

The Original Green Machine

Cal Flame leads the way with grills that are both Eco-friendly and pocketbook-friendly. Long before it became fashionable to burn cleanly and efficiently, Cal Flame grills have been at the forefront of green cooking. For many years, no other grill has been designed to provide healthier grilled food and a cleaner environment!

Not all stainless steel burners are created equal! Cal Flame grills feature commercial-grade cast stainless steel burners that provide a unique green grilling experience. Cast burners are far more efficient than typical steel burners and have a number of Eco-conscious features:

  • Cast burners require less energy -> less fuel -> less $$$
  • Cast burners retain heat longer due to their extra thick size
  • Less fuel means less toxins are released into food and the environment
  • Cast burners provide a cleaner and healthier eating experience
  • Cast burners heat the grill evenly
  • Cast burners cost less to run due to lower fuel requirements
  • Cast burners are not subject to burn-through like stainless steel sheet metal burners
  • Cast burners are designed to last longer than typical stainless steel burners

Each Cal Flame grill is built to the same exacting standards and with the same environmental and budget conscious outcome in mind:

Green Grilling = Good for You and the Environment!
