Connie is asking: (4 answers)
My biggest problem with cooking is knowing which spices will mix well with a dish. I usually try to find a recipe close to mine to see what is listed. Is there a general rule of thumb for what to add to a beef or chicken dish?

If you search around on internet you will find wonderful herb/spice charts to help with that.

Rosemary,thyme,garlic,parsley,to me go well with chicken.Not a big beef eater so that one sorry can't help, but AuntE,and nanny129 gave you good advice.

It would depend on the dish I am preparing. For Chicken I have used sage, Thyme and beef garlic powder, chili powder. When doing my Curry Casserole I have used either.

I add garlic to almost everything meat. In my rubs, in my sauces whatever. It truly is wonderful!
