This uniquely American rub for ribs features coffee, cocoa powder and warm fragrant spices. Lush cashew butter is added to some of the rub, turning it into a mole sauce to use as a mop for the ribs on the grill.
Preheat oven to 375°F. For the Coffee Rub, mix all ingredients except ribs in small bowl until well blended. Reserve 1 tablespoon for the Mole Mop Sauce. Rub remaining Coffee Rub evenly over ribs. Place ribs in single layer on foil-lined roasting pan. Cover with foil
Bake 1 hour or until meat starts to pull away from bones. Just before grilling, prepare the Mole Mop Sauce. Mix chicken stock, cashew butter, 2 tablespoons of the cilantro, lime juice and reserved Coffee Rub in medium bowl until well blended
Grill ribs over medium-high heat 1 to 2 minutes per side or until evenly browned, basting with some of the Mole Mop Sauce. Transfer ribs to serving platter. Add 1 tablespoon of the remaining cilantro to remaining Mole Mop Sauce. Brush onto ribs. Sprinkle with remaining cilantro
