Savory Soulmates: Beef and Mushrooms

To quote classic Sinatra: “You can’t have one. No, you can’t have one without the other.”

As with peanut butter and jam, mashed potatoes and gravy, lo mein and oyster sauce, strawberries and whipped cream, certain foods have certain affinities for certain other foods that create indelible and unique taste memories.

From a hearty, grilled, perfectly medium-rare rib steak topped with a garlicky mushroom sauté, or Beef Wellington coated with mushroom duxelles and wrapped snugly in a blanket of puff pastry, to the earthy, slow-cooked classic of Boeuf Bourguignon—beef and mushrooms share that type of affinity.

Sausage in Profile: Chorizo

While the concept of sausage is simple, thousands of variations can be found throughout the world.  Sausages can be fresh, cured, smoked, or cooked. They are made of beef, pork, veal, chicken, and more. And they can include myriad ingredients, from spices and herbs to fruits, vegetables, and cheeses—and even liquids such as beer, whiskey, or blood. Our “Sausage in Profile” series aims to introduce you to different types of sausage—their flavor profiles, histories, and uses—from familiar favorites to unique finds.

 

Chorizo Sausage is a fiery Spanish-style pork sausage that gets its flavor from paprika, garlic, and vinegar and its heat from a liberal complement of chili powder.

Dry-cured and smoked, chorizo is most often used as an ingredient in soups, stews, and casseroles, but is equally at home grilled, broiled, or pan-fried and served in a bun.
