Sweet Jalapeno Ribs

I thought I would try it this weekend because country style pork ribs are on sale at Kroger for $1.49/lb, and I had free A1 from when it was on sale for $2 and had a $2 coupon. You can get the jelly for $1.99 at Kroger (not on sale). It was my first time to make ribs, and they were pretty good! This really isn't that spicy at all. I also made a (very unhealthy) key lime pie for tonight when the rest of Brett's family gets in. I'll post it with the recipe tomorrow after I cut into it! :o)

Sweet Jalapeno Ribs
Southern Living's Easy Weeknight Favorites
4 servings

2 (16 oz) can pinto beans, drained
3 lbs country-style pork ribs, trimmed
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
1 (10.5 oz) jar red jalapeno jelly
1 (5 oz) bottle steak sauce (I used A1)
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped (optional)

-Place beans in an electric slow cooker. Set aside.
-Cut ribs apart; sprinkle with garlic powder, 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 slow cooker, and sprinkle with onion.
-Combine jelly, steak sauce, and, if desired, chopped pepper in a sauce-pan; cook over low heat until jelly melts. Pour over ribs; stir gently.
-Cover and cook on HIGH 5 to 6 hours or on LOW 9 to 10 hours. Remove ribs; skim fat from sauce. Cook sauce with beans, uncovered, on HIGH 30 more minutes or until slightly thickened. Add ribs just before serving to reheat.
