Default Fruit with meat

While i was looking at Mister Bobs pork loin the other day i noticed he did some pears sauteed with peppers sugar and other things.What fruits have you tried that compliment a meat well. And i mean like a stuffing not a side dish. I know that pear and apple go good with pork but how about beef,chicken,turkey and lamb. What have you tried and had real good luck with.

Sky's the limit on this one. Cherry and Peach are good as well. When I'm going for something different or just want to get creative, I visit the grocer and go to the jam and jelly aisle. I look for fruit jelly. jams and preserves. Polaner brand is my fav. I use these for glazes and also incorporate into side dishes. Very simple to use and really adds to the dishes flavor and appearance.

I've done a grilled pineapple salsa to go with pork. Raspberry chipotle glaze for chicken.

Like redpig said...there really is no limit.

Let's go in a different direction:

I LOVE the inclusion of root vegetables as a side. Rutabega compliments pork and beef amazingly well.

As a stuffing base, with apples included, perhaps, might be an interesting combo.

This is why i love this website, My father who i Obtain a lot of my grilling habits from was very narrow minded when it came to incorporating flavors together. The guy wouldn't even use steak sauce and there is nothing wrong with that but it left me a little narrow minded as well. But now with the good help and friends that i have acquired its really inspired me to try something different.

Plums and pork go back to at least Roman days, they say. Still taste good today. Some of best tasting has been the most simple, bacon wrapped pineapple chunks or even better bacon wrapped peach halves, simply smoked. Chicken with a apricot flavor goes over very well. Steve.

Blackberry goes great with beef as does an orange-based glaze.

You've made a very interesting point here. When it comes to steak sauce I'm going to take the side of your father. Steak sauce, if you mean like A1 or Heinz 57, isn't allowed in my house. (One exception is a recipe where A1 is an ingredient in the basting sauce) But imparting flavors into meat a different way is the right way to go.

A nice citrus marinaded flank steak with a pineapple or mango salsa or chutney is awesome. I think it's a little harder to pair a fruit with beef than it is with fish or chicken, but there are ways to do it.

I fired up my grill last year after the winter months without checking the drip pan, which had been filled to the brim with palm dates by some critter.

I had a bad flare up that lasted about ten minutes, but I was able to keep the pork chops I was cooking from getting too charred.

I'm not really sure how it happened, but the pork chops came out glazed with an orange layer of sweetness from the dates, and they ate absolutely great!

Last time I used Phruits with meat was in my last chili during the last Dutch Brethren Bash in Meppel,The Netherlands.
I used mango with lamb and beePh chili.
