A Delicious Herb Rub for Meat

To make the herb rub, combine the following in a food processor and blend until evenly combined:

3 Tbsp minced garlic

1/4 cup loosely packed rosemary leaves

1/4 cup loosely packed thyme leaves

6 fresh or 12 dried bay leaves, crushed

Peel of 1 lemon, removed in strips and finely minced

2 tsp fennel pollen

1/2 tsp red chile flakes

1 whole nutmeg, finely grated on a microplane

With the blender running, stream in to make a paste:

1/2 cup EVOO

Scrape the paste into a small bowl and set aside.


This rub works especially well on pork shoulder or lamb.
