    Rita~'s Note:

    I found this recipe in Southern Living! Yummy! I've prepared this the night before on low to have done for an early dinner! I did tweak it. The optional ingredients were added to the original recipe from Southern Living.

    1. 1
      Place beans in a 5-quart electric slow cooker; set aside.
    2. 2
      Cut ribs apart; sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
    3. 3
      Place ribs on a broiling pan. Besides browning for taste this removes some of the fat.
    4. 4
      Broil 5 1/2 inches from heat 18 to 20 minutes or until browned, turning once.
    5. 5
      Add ribs to slow cooker, and sprinkle with onion, garlic, and pepper.
    6. 6
      Combine jelly, barbecue sauce, and hot sauce in a saucepan; cook over low heat until jelly melts. (I just added right to the beans and it melted in with no problem).
    7. 7
      Pour over ribs; stir gently.
    8. 8
      Cover and cook at HIGH 5 to 6 hours or at LOW 9 to 10 hours.
    9. 9
      Remove ribs.
    10. 10
      Drain bean mixture, reserving sauce.
    11. 11
      Skim fat from sauce.
    12. 12
      Arrange ribs over bean mixture; serve with sauce.
    13. 13
      Serve on a bed of rice.

      Outstanding! I loved cooking beans and ribs together, and they were SOOO good: ribs very tender; beans just perfect. These were sweet, but not too sweet..just right. I had lots of sauce left over, so will add another can of beans next time. Thanks, Rita, for sharing this easy, no-fail recipe. I'll be making these again and again.

      Awesome recipe! I didn't have pinto beans or hickory BBQ sauce. I used Cannellini beans and Sonny's sweet BBQ with 1 tsp of hickory liquid smoke.

      DH was a bit skeptical about this because of the spicy ingredients, but he loved it. I accidentally bought boneless ribs (5 lb of solid meat!) - as a result some parts wound up a bit dry, but not all, by any means. Also, I set my Smart Pot for 8 hours on low, but the recipe sat on warm for at least another 4 hours! I will definitely make these again, but I recommend the bone-in ribs, and will read the package more carefully next time.
