    Hope you don't mind if I only try the sauce part (being vegan I don't think short ribs would be on my menu). I think the sauce sounds wonderful and I am always looking for new and exciting tasting sauces. I'll admit sometimes vegan foods can be just a bit bland.

    Definitely let you know, not sure what I will put it on, but I will be making it! Only changing honey to agave, but hope that doesn't destroy the integrity of it all.

    I use regular, brewed coffee, but I do make it strong

    This coffee you speak of, is it espresso strength or regular strength?

    This is our family favorite. It tastes wonderful!
