THE ELECTRIC KITCHEN
Menu for ono cookout includes ribs, teriyaki burgers and beans
Last week we shared salad recipes for your summer picnics and cookouts. That made us ono for some of our favorite cookout recipes.
Uncle Noble's Cowboy Beans is a nice variation on traditional baked or barbecue-style beans. The different mix of beans gives it a nice flavor and texture contrast. Kids both young and old are sure to like Teriyaki Burgers. The recipe for Ono Ribs was originally featured on our former cooking show, "The Electric Kitchen," and they really are delicious and so easy to prepare!
