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
- 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.
- Cover and cook on HIGH 5 to 6 hours or on LOW 9 to 10 hours.
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
