Sweet/Savory?

I've been in a "cooking rut", and wanted to try something new.

I was ready to make "Hawaiian Chicken", but we did something else with the chicken, so last night I made "Hawaiian Pork Chops".

This worked amazingly well. Though the sauce is sweet alone, with the pork, salty (soy), and onion flavors, it changes dramatically.

Have I been missing out on this "Sweet/ Savory" flavor combo all these years?

My Mom always made "sour/savory" dishes, like Pork Chops with Sauerkraut.

We do use a sweet BBQ sauce here in Texas, now that I think about it.

Eric, Austin Tx.

actually, i think it's sweet/ savory, like sweet and meat..

Tonight I made Korean Bulgogi, which actually had a lot of sugar in the marinade

big hit compared to my usual beef w/ brocholi recipe...

I still had some Kimchi, for the sour days of my youth...

I tend to use alot of honey, maple syrup and brown sugar in persuit of this flavor combo

I alos like to add chili pepper for a sweet/hot taste in rubs and marinades

You might want to try the sweet/hot combinations, like a mango/habanero salsa, or pineapple/habanero salsa. Other cultures from the tropics have their own take on sweet/hot. Have fun experimenting and learning!

I tried Buffalo Wild Wings' Habanero Mango sauce and loved it. One of my fav sweet/hot flavors.
