Reviews for Jalapeno Ribs
Sort By :
"Excellent ribs! The jalapeno's add great flavor to the sauce. My family requests these ribs all the time!"
"Love these ribs! Great rub! Great sauce! I used bone-in country style ribs instead. Would not change a thing!"
"Excellent... used cayenne pepper instead of chili power only because I was out. Very spicy, but really good."
"we loved this recipe, the sauce was top notch. The only thing we will do different is to go with beef ribs and make a little bit more sauce and cook the ribs in the sauce then put them on the grill."
"Been making these ribs for years. It was in a TOH pork cookbook I got years ago. It is the ONLY way we ever make ribs anymore. We always double the sauce so there is enough."
