Place beans in crock pot. Cut ribs apart; sprinkle with garlic powder, salt, & ½ tsp. pepper. Place ribs on a rack in a broiler pan. Broil 5 ½ in. from upper heating element ( with electric oven door partially opened) 18-20 minutes or until well browned, turning once. Add ribs to crock pot sprinkling with onions. Combine jelly, steak sauce, and jalapeno peppers in a saucepan; cook over low heat until jelly melts. Pour over ribs; stir gently. Cover & cook at HIGH 3-4 hours or at low 8-10 hrs. Remove ribs.
