How to Season Your Meat

Posted on Jan 20 2013 - 2:42am by Markell

So I was going to post up another recipe tonight (Enchilada Casserole), but I think I’m going to wait for Monday to post that one. While I was cooking it, I got to thinking. How am I supposed to know what spices go good with what meats? My mother did teach me some cooking basics, but she isn’t a big spice user, and my husband cannot live without tons of spices. My grandmother-in-law told me that the spice bottles used to say on them what they are good with, but they don’t anymore, at least mine don’t. I really don’t have any idea what I’m doing when it comes to spices. I pretty much just follow whatever the recipe tells me to. If I am not following a recipe, I get in spice ruts where I use one spice on EVERYTHING (Garlic Salt anyone?) I want to be able to create some original meals, so I figured I needed to know what spices might work well with whatever meat I am cooking. I decided to make this paper for myself to use as a little cheat sheet, and I thought some other people might appreciate it as well so, here it is! Let me know if you know of any other spices that are good on certain meats. Click on the link to download.
