I love Frankensteining two or more products together during a review. It tastes like… Victory.
Only if you’ve done it right. Luckily, mixing All Spice Cafe’s Chipotle Garlic sauce with Karoun Kefir Labne Cheese worked extremely well. If it hadn’t, there’d be a new hole in my backyard. The sort of hole Joe Pesci bitched about having to dig in Casino, only without a snitch in it. The sauce packs a medium-sized heat and smoky flavor with garlic and tartness. Traditionally made by draining whey from slightly salted yogurt, Labne is a thick and creamy yogurt cheese that’s a healthier alternative to regular cream cheese. It’s also rich enough to be used as a substitute for sour cream.
Mating these two crazy kids led to a very tasty but very tart dressing with as much as heat as you could want, outside of going ballistic on the fire factor. If you try this combo and find it’s too sour for you, I’d recommend offsetting it with a sweetener. The steak rub I used for grilling the meat already had some sweet in it so for me, this wasn’t an issue. Not only am I using this combination on a steak sandwich again soon, I’d also use it for dipping or as a salad dressing.[yumprint-recipe id=’41’]
