You can substitute Cracked Black Pepper for Black Peppercorns if you want a stronger, more peppery bite. On the opposite end of the spectrum, use Ground Black Pepper Fine Grind for a less intense peppery taste. Cracked Black Pepper is the strongest flavor and aroma of all our ground peppers. This is the kind of pepper chefs prefer to use in smaller amounts as it adds real zing to chicken, fish, meats, vegetables, salads, and cottage cheese. Black pepper is a perfect partner to beef, which is why you will find so many dishes all over the world that rely on heavily peppered beef. Try Chinese peppersteak or French steak au poivre. It’s wonderful on chicken as well, like in Italian diavolo, also known as "Devil's Chicken" for its spicy flavor. For a robust flavor burst, Cracked Black Pepper is the way to go. It adds a nice flavor and heat to any dish, and can also add texture because it's not a fine grind pepper. This makes it a great addition to ice cream, cream-based soups, dairy-based sauces, red sauces, and tomato dishes. It's also an extremely aromatic pepper, making any dish brilliantly scented. Try this pepper anywhere you would use regular fine grind pepper, like on eggs, in tomato juice, or on pasta dishes. Don't over spice though! It's a strong pepper, so taste as you go.
