Good Eats From Clif Poston of Traton Homes


Traton HomesClif Poston, Executive Vice President of Traton Homes, got the chance to share a unique and tasty recipe with the Marietta Daily Journal a few months ago. Combining juicy short ribs, a rich barbecue sauce and tangy bleu cheese coleslaw, the ingredients list alone is enough to make you hungry. The short ribs won first place in a cookoff from the Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society. Not only is the recipe tasty, but adaptable to many different purposes as well, such as to eat on nachos or turn into sandwiches.

A warning: don’t read these recipes while hungry.
