This popular spice for sweets and desserts possesses a warm flavor profile that can also impact savory dishes. Add a pinch of cinnamon to your favorite beef, lamb, or pork stews for a warmer kick in every spoonful. Also, sprinkle cinnamon into beef chili or the meat filling for shepherd pies and meat pies. Cinnamon provides a comforting contrast to smoked meats and bacon. Lastly, some spaghetti bolognese recipes do call for cinnamon.
