3 Cheap Ways To Make Your Food Taste Better

3 cheap ways to make your food taste better, from Cheap Recipe Blog

Do you want to instantly become a better cook? Of course you do! Today I am sharing three of my favorite tips for making food taste better. I use these tips all the time.

If your dish is lacking in flavor, one simple addition can make all the difference. Here are three ideas to try:

1: Add Sweetener

I’m sure I’ll get some flak for suggesting this, but hear me out. Adding a bit of sweetener to a savory dish can make it really tasty. We’re not talking about a large amount of sugar here. Just a pinch can do wonders to a dish that’s missing something.

2: Add Spiciness

Adding hot sauce or crushed red pepper can give a dish some zing. But my main tip here is to start using sriracha sauce. Sriracha sauce is a hot sauce that also contains garlic, sugar, and vinegar. So while it definitely adds some heat, it also adds more flavor in general. Go buy a bottle right now!

3: Add An Acidic Component

This is my favorite tip of all. If your dish is missing a certain je ne sais quoi, try adding a bit of citrus or vinegar to it. You will be amazed.

    When trying to make foods taste better , be creative by using items from your frig you already have. For example, I made Reuben sandwiches the other night and had no Thousand Island dressing. I mixed mayo, a splash of catsup, a few drops of soy sauce, pinch of sugar and pickle relish. It was great and it was cheap (didn’t have to buy a big bottle of Thousand Island).
