These sweet, spicy hot ribs flavored with a Red Jalapeno Pepper Jelly paired with pinto's was the perfect combination for a crockpot BBQ.

I served this dish with my Mom's Old Fashioned Mustard Potato Salad and Sweet Cheddar Biscuits that some claim are the Jim n Nicks recipe.

This combination was well paired and a big hit!

How to Make Sweet Jalapeno Bourbon Ribs - Dee Dee's

Step-by-Step

  1. Place beans in a 4-quart electric slow cookier, set aside.
  2. If in a slab, cut ribs apart; sprinkle with garlic powder, seasoning salt, salt and pepper. Place ribs on a rack in a broiler pan. Broil 5 1/2-inches from heat (with electric oven door partially opened) 18 to 20 minutes or until well browned, turning once. Add ribs to slower cooker and sprinkle onion on top.
  3. Combine jelly, steak sauce, bourbon and, if desired, chopped jalapeno pepper in a saucepan; cook over low heat until jelly melts. Pour over ribs; stir gently.
  4. Cover and cook on HIGH 5 to 6 hours or on LOW 9 to 10 hours.
  5. Remove ribs; skim fat from sauce. Cook sauce and beans, uncovered, on HIGH for an additional 30 minutes or until slightly thickened. Add ribs just before serving to reheaat.
  6. NOTES:
    Jalapeno jelly is a key ingredient in this recipe; it melts into a sweet-spicy glaze that coates these ribs and beans. You can find jalapeno is bigger town grocery stores. I live in a small town and couldn't find it so I made my own. This is a very easy recipe: Red Jalapeno Pepper Jelly - Dee Dee's

    Country-style ribs are extra meaty. If they come as a slab, you'll need to cut them apart to fit them in the slow cooker.

    Broiling the ribs first browns them and adds rich flavor, and removes excess fat.

    Because of the sweet heat in these ribs I felt a sweet cheese biscuit was perfect for this dish: Sweet Cheese Biscuits - Dee Dee's
