Better Homes & Gardens June 2016 Recipes

Blistered Green Beans with Charred Tomato Puttanesca
Summer's here, and it's time to start cooking outside! Our latest recipes are all about firing up the grill and pouring a signature cocktail. Plus, we're sharing the secrets to perfectly steamed dumplings and inventive twists on new potatoes.

Grilled Bone-In Beef Ribeye Steak

The secret to these perfectly cooked steaks? An infused herb oil made from rendered bacon fat and garlic. 

Asian Potato Salad with Shrimp

This is no ordinary potato salad. A tangy mix of rice vinegar, chili-garlic sauce, and fish sauce gives this grown-up salad plenty of Asian flavor. Top the bowl with chopped peanuts and fresh mint. 

Fire-Roasted Ricotta with Corn and Peppers

Your appetizer game is about to get a lot stronger. Top bubbly grilled ricotta with charred corn and hot peppers for a must-try app.

Chicken with Basil Sauce & Cucumber-Radish Salad

Finally, a basil-spiked answer for dressing up plain chicken. 

Grilled Parmesan Cake

Adding parmesan cheese to the batter keeps this rich cake from being too sweet. A light toast on the grill gives the moist slice just a hint of smoke. Serve the cake warm with whipped cream, fresh blackberries, and mint. 

Grilled Summer Artichokes

Our favorite super-simple way to eat these insanely good grilled artichokes: dipped in our garlicky lemon mayo. 

Steamed Dumplings

We're sharing the secrets to perfect steamed dumplings (it's all about the bamboo steamer). Plus, get four flavorful filling ideas. 

Tahini-Ginger Noodles & Veggies

Who said vegetarian dinners are boring? This veggie-packed pasta dish gets major flavor from our tahini and ginger sauce. 

Herb Hash Browns

Brighten your breakfast favorite with a trio of fresh summer herbs. Parsley, tarragon, and thyme are folded right into the potatoes and cooked till perfectly crisp.

Orange Salmon & Green Onions

The magic here is in the ginger-soy-orange sauce. Be sure to use fresh juice for the most flavor. 

Cheesy Hasselback New Potatoes

You're looking at our new favorite side dish. Simply top tender new potatoes with garlicky cheese and breadcrumbs then bake. A sprinkle of fresh lemon zest just before serving adds a fresh bite. 

Ox Blood Cocktail

This signature drink from Portland’s Ox Restaurant gets its color from fresh red beet juice. The earthy flavor is a perfect match for bourbon, fresh tarragon, and lemon. 

Grilled Red Onions with Crumbled Feta

The high heat of your grill gives red onions surprising sweetness. A quick soak before hitting the coals helps the onion steam and cook more thoroughly. 

Leafy Summer Salad

Feel good about eating your greens. A big bunch of fresh dill gives this fresh salad plenty of flavor. 

Black Bean & Rainbow Chard Tortillas

This recipe proves we've been eating swiss chard wrong. It's all about the stems. 

Blistered Green Beans with Charred Tomato Puttanesca

All the classics of puttanesca (anchovies, olives, and capers) are just as good on smoky green beans as on pasta.
