How to Make It

Step 1

Stir the picante sauce, Worcestershire, vinegar, molasses, coffee, cocoa powder and garlic in a medium bowl. Pour half the picante sauce mixture into a 3-quart shallow, nonmetallic baking dish for marinade.  Cover and refrigerate the remaining picante sauce mixture.

Step 2

Add the ribs to the baking dish and turn to coat.  Cover and refrigerate for 12 hours.

Step 3

Set up the grill for indirect cooking.  Lightly oil the grill rack.  Heat the grill to medium. Grill the ribs for 3 hours or until fork-tender, turning and basting often with the marinade.  Discard the remaining marinade.

Step 4

Heat the remaining picante sauce mixture in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat to a boil, stirring occasionally.  Serve the sauce with the ribs and sprinkle with the onions.
