We love this recipe duo as sides for our Kansas City ribs because we feel that a sweet, slightly spicy baked bean and a creamy tangy coleslaw deserve to be highlighted on your summer barbeque table. The bbq sauce in the beans pairs great with the ribs and the cool and creamy coleslaw contrasts perfectly. While this looks like a whole bunch of ingredients both of these recipes come together in a flash. You can cook the beans at the same time as the ribs and prepare the coleslaw during the cook. Whip up some lemonade and relax on your porch while Suvie cooks your barbeque for you.
