10 Sweet and Savory Recipes You'll Love
Sweet and savory blends
Common pantry ingredients take on new roles in our recipes, bending the definitions of sweet and savory.
Salt brightens almost any dish, even dessert. A generous grind is the final flourish on Salty Caramel and Pecan Oatmeal Cookies.
Chocolate in all its many forms is a kitchen chameleon, morphing along a flavor spectrum of bitter and sweet. We used two kinds in Spiced Chocolate-Pistachio Cookies.
Inspired by mulled cider and German sauerbraten, we seasoned Spicy Beef, Bean and Vegetable Stew with allspice.
Cuisines across Asia and Africa use pumpkin pie spice in savory dishes. We chose to update an old favorite, creating Cinnamon-Spiced Beef Stroganoff.
Get your apple a day in a new way. Morsels of fruit add nutrition and sweet-tart zing to Apple Harvest Chili.
Chipotle peppers infuse campfire smoke in grilled Sweet and Spicy Steak Salad. Pick a pepper: Chipotles are smoked jalapeños. Most recipes call for the canned kind, which are available at big supermarkets and come in flavorful adobo sauce. Puree or mince the extra peppers with the sauce, and freeze in a flattened resealable plastic bag. Break off pieces when you want to add smoky heat to a recipe. (One tablespoon of puree equals about one pepper.) We also like Tabasco’s chipotle sauce; it’s milder, but super convenient.
