I like to make real hamburgers occasionally, too - but cheese melting on meat just doesn't do it for me... And when I see things like steak in a blue cheese sauce on a menu?

More than steak, which I agree, its a shame to sully, I was thinking of things like a lovely blue cheese steak pie or pudding.

Blue cheese and horseradish will never go with my palate. Gag!

I don't like anything flavored with coffee or licorice (anise, fennel, tarragon).

I love raisons in sweets, but not in savory dishes, like rice.

Usually Paual Deens recipes look very good, but she makes a layered salad that includes bananas and raisons along with the ham, cheeses, onions, etc, that looks just awful.

I generally do not like fruits with meats. The two exceptions that I can think of are cranberrys with turkey and chicken with mango. Those two I do enjoy.

Oh I love apples with pork. And couldn't eat a roast pork dinner without home made apple sauce, to which I add a few fresh sage leaves.

If I roast any kind of pork, SO reaches for the apple sauce. It's a reflex action, even if I make a sauce with apple brandy and apple cider.

Original question was combos that don't work?

For me it's fish (not shellfish) with Asian food. The combo of soy sauce and fish just revolts me. I like my fish Greek-ified, surprise, surprise.

Tomato and tuna and/or other fish not working? Couldn't live without puttanesca every once in awhile, and my hubby makes a dish with fresh sardines, filleted, blanketed with a sweet-ish sauce made from fresh tomatoes, garlic, oil, and some fresh parsley. All in the oven. The thought didn't do it for me, but I have to admit it's REALLY good.

And, mixing threads here ... it's also really good as a pasta sauce!
