Our onion forward seasoning blend, French Cuffs is a unique blend inspired by our timeless French Onion Soup served at the Golden Steer Steakhouse in Las Vegas. This comforting seasoning not only includes hints of onion garlic, lemon pepper, and nutritional yeast but we also included real dried onion shavings. This makes it a fantastic ingredient for adding a depth of flavor to your dishes. However, there is one chef tip that you need to keep in mind when using this seasoning - it should not be put on direct heat for an extended period of time, or it will burn.
Why shouldn't French Cuffs onion seasoning be put on direct heat for an extended period of time?
The reason why French Cuffs onion seasoning should not be put on direct heat for an extended period of time is that the real onion in the seasoning can burn. This can lead to a bitter taste and an unpleasant smell, which will ruin the dish you're cooking. The other spices in the blend may also lose their flavor if exposed to high heat for too long.
How to avoid burning French Cuffs onion seasoning?
To avoid burning French Cuffs onion seasoning, it's essential to use it correctly. Here are some tips to keep in mind:
Add it towards the end of cooking: To ensure that the French Cuffs onion seasoning doesn't burn, it's best to add it towards the end of cooking. This will give it enough time to infuse the dish with flavor without being exposed to high heat for an extended period.
Use it as a finishing touch: Another way to use French Cuffs onion seasoning without exposing it to high heat is to use it as a finishing touch. Simply sprinkle it over your dish once it's done cooking, or add it to a sauce or dressing.
Mix it with oil or butter: If you need to use French Cuffs onion seasoning during cooking, mix it with some oil or butter before adding it to the dish. This will help distribute the seasoning evenly and reduce the risk of burning.
In conclusion, French Cuffs onion seasoning is a fantastic ingredient for adding flavor to your dishes. However, because it contains real onion, it's important to use it correctly to avoid burning. By adding it towards the end of cooking, using it as a finishing touch, or mixing it with oil or butter, you can ensure that your dishes taste fantastic and aren't ruined by burnt seasoning.
