There’s nothing more exciting than stumbling across a unique food pairing that you would never have thought would work together. While coupling food such as pork and apple, lamb and mint and strawberries and cream are popular all around the world, there are always new and exciting tastes that chefs are playing with such as chilli and chocolate.
There are lots of unusual food pairings that may not be for everyone but anyone who likes to experience new tastes, might want to try a few out. Good quality Australian beef jerky can be added to a whole host of meals and snacks, so let’s start with a few of those before moving onto some other fun pairings:
- Beef jerky and salad
Want to spice up a salad? Then sprinkle some beef jerky onto it and it can be added to anything from a plain garden salad to a chicken or egg salad.
- Soup and Jerky
Jerky can be added to any soup from tomato to vegetable to add a kick of flavour to it and it also works well to thicken up sauces and stews.
- Jerky and Bloody Mary
Ever had a bloody Mary with a celery stick in it? Next time, swap the celery stick for a stick of jerky and twizzle some salty flavour into the mix.
- Jerky and Omelette
Tomatoes, onions and cheese all work well in an omelette, so why not add some good quality jerky Biltong from Perth to make it even tastier?
- Avocado and Chocolate
Avocado can be used to make anything from smoothies and puddings to mousses and muffins, and of course the addition of chocolate makes everything better. This combination is surprisingly popular and can even be put together to make some truffles.
- Cheese and Jam
This combination works great in sandwiches and toasties, for anyone who enjoys a mouth full of sweet and savoury in one bite.
- Split Pea Soup and Jerky
The tastiest beef jerky in Perth can be added to a bowl of hearty spilt pea soup to give it an extra boost of flavour.
- Ice Cream and Olive Oil
Olive oil has a creamy taste and mixed into ice cream, this works perfectly to give the ice cream a smooth, velvety texture.
- Meat and Pomegranate
Anything from pork to beef works well with fruit and pomegranate adds a flavoursome touch to anything from lamb chops to flank steak. Australian beef jerky from D Jay’s Gourment also tastes great with some pomegranate sprinkled over the top.
- Bacon and Peanut Butter
From toast to sandwiches, forget peanut butter and jam and try it with bacon instead. The mixture of sweet and salt makes the perfect snack for breakfast or lunch and it can be made even sweeter by using banana bread.
There are all kinds of weird and wonderful food combos out there that are well worth trying, so don’t just stick to the same recipes day after day when there are so many other options to try.
