What Spices Go with What Meat?

A perfectly seasoned entree can be the highlight of a wonderful meal. Achieving this feat is not always as easy as one might think. Most folks just don't know what the best meat spices are. As a matter of fact it can be downright challenging to remember which herbs and spices complement what meat and egg foods. Cookbooks can be great resource for seasoning ideas but invariable I find a great recipe and do not have an ingredient on hand. This comprehensive list of complementary spices can serve as a handy resource for making a shopping list or simply inspiring some new ideas about how to use what you already have on hand. Feel free to experiment with the following seasonings or combinations of spices to enhance the flavor of the food for which it is recommended.

I have spices in my cupboard and now know what to do with them. Thanks. The format is good but can be improved by adding a reverse format starting with each spice and how to use it.
