Crock Pot Sweet and Spicy Pork or Beef Ribs and Beans

READY IN: 5hrs 30mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

For this recipe the ribs need to be browned under the broiler first for extra flavor. You can also cook this in a 300 degree oven.

This recipe is the same as my Recipe #53846. That I posted back in Feb of 2003 giving Southern cooking the credit. Yes! I did tweak mine as well. Tender sweet and spicy.
