Combine finely chopped onion and diced bacon in a Suvie pan. Broil for 10 minutes, or until the onion is soft and bacon fat is rendered.
Meanwhile, mix together the rib rub: ¼ cup brown sugar, paprika, chili powder, 1 tsp salt, dry mustard, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder and ½ tsp ground pepper. Set aside 1 tbsp of rub for the beans.
Remove and discard membrane from pork ribs and trim any excess fat. Cut pork into individual ribs.
Season on all sides of the ribs with the spice rub (you should use all or almost all of rub for a full rack).
Place ribs in a Suvie pan and cover with a layer of parchment, then with a layer of foil.
Remove onion-bacon mixture from Suvie. Drain off the fat and discard. Stir in navy beans, the reserved 1 tbsp rib rub, molasses, 2 tbsp brown sugar and ½ cup BBQ sauce.
Place corn in the starch pan and put in the bottom right zone of your Suvie. Place pans with beans and ribs in the upper right and upper left zones of your Suvie.
Fill Suvie reservoir with water and input slow cook settings, schedule or cook immediately.
Slow Cook Settings:
Protein: LOW for 4 hours
Starch: 8 minutes
While the beans, ribs, and corn are cooking, make the coleslaw.
In a large bowl, whisk together the vinegar and granulated sugar until the sugar dissolves then whisk in 1 tsp salt, and mayonnaise. Add coleslaw mix, tossing to combine.
Cover, and place in refrigerator until ready to plate.
After the ribs have finished cooking, remove from pan and pat dry.
Pour off excess liquid and dry pan. Return ribs to pan and brush ¾ c BBQ sauce on all sides of the ribs.
Return ribs to your Suvie and broil until browned on each side, about 10 minutes a side.
Slather corn with butter and salt to taste. Season coleslaw to taste with salt and pepper. Divide ribs, beans, corn, and coleslaw evenly between plates, spooning extra sauce over the ribs. Enjoy!
