I love boneless country style ribs but my husband usually cooks them on the pit. He is the pit master at my house , but his job keeps him away on the weekends at times. I had a package of these type ribs that needed to be cooked and an over abundance of jalapenos from my meager garden. I was hungry and using what I had on hand is basically how these Sweet Heat Country Style Ribs were born. I love using different flavors together and sweet and spicy is at the the of the list of being a favorite.
This recipe will go into my ” go to” recipes for easy crock pot meals , we just loved it. The flavors are so yummy and has just the right amount of spice. If spice isn’t your thing this can be easily adjust but cutting back on the amount jalapenos or even deseeding them. This is super simple and start off by thinly slicing onions and placing them in the bottom of the slow cooker. Place the country style ribs on top of the onions, then toss n the sliced jalapenos on top of the meat. Reserve 3-4 Tablespoons of BBQ sauce and set aside, empty the rest of it in a bowl. Fill the BBQ sauce container with pineapple juice and shake real well and add tot the BBQ sauce. Add vinegar , chili powder, salt, pepper , red pepper and stir well, Pour Over the ribs and cook for 4 hours on high or 8 hours on low. Carefully remove ribs and place them on a baking sheet and baste them with BBQ sauce. Place them under a broiler for about ten minutes or until they are carmelized a little bit. Serve with the cooked onions and jalapenos.
