Tastebud Wake-up Call

Silk Road Spice LabelSome of the meats out there have nice texture but not much taste. Some of that is because of the meat and some is because the taste buds are not prepared to handle it. Usually the taste buds are warmed up by the sense of smell. Preparation of the meat prepares all the senses (even touch if you burn yourself). All to often, in modern restaurants, the preparation aroma is inaccessible. The following mixture WAKES UP THE TASTEBUDS!

  • Agave nectar (syrup)
  • Soy sauce
  • Rose’s Lime Juice
  • Light olive oil
  • Sesame oil (go easy)
  • Silk Road Spice (see graphic for proportions)
  • Minced roasted garlic
  • Ginger powder or paste
  • Chipotle powder
  • Fish sauce
  • Rice vinegar
  • Port or red wine for red meat.

PROPORTIONS TO TASTE. Use as marinade or a thin sauce. Thicken with a bit of roux for a sauce that will turn you off the bottled stuff (meat sauce that is)
