Can I use lemon juice if I don't have lime juice? I would hate to run to the store just for a lime, but I guess I can if it is that important to the dish. I like that you use the brewed coffee to give the dish a richer, more hearty flavor.

This looks and sounds so delicious but I've always wondered, why do people add brandy or any other alcohol in their meat dishes? Usually if a meal has alcohol in it, I avoid it like the plague because for some odd reason I seem to think it's going to taste like alcohol...and I've never been into the drinking alcohol with my meals trend.
