2 tablespoons Kroger Dark Brown Sugar

2 1/2 pounds Pork Baby Back Ribs

Preheat the oven to 350⁰ F.

Mix 1/4 cup of hot water with Instant Coffee and stir to dissolve. Once, dissolved, combine with the plum sauce, orange juice, chipotle sauce and brown sugar in a small saucepan over medium heat. Bring the sauce to a boil and reduce the heat. Simmer until slightly thickened or about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Coat both sides of the ribs with the sauce, reserve 2/3 cup for basting later. Arrange the ribs, meaty side up on a papered baking sheet, do not stack ribs. Cover the pan tightly with paper & then foil and bake the ribs 1 hour.

Remove the foil & paper (from the top), baste with the remaining BBQ sauce and bake the ribs for 1 more hour.  Allow the cooked ribs to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before slicing and serving.
