Mexican Oregano, Greek Cut
Greek Cut Mexican Oregano
Sweet, slightly citrusy Mexican oregano is an often overlooked member of the lemon verbena family that pairs well with many applications. Mexican oregano can be used for rubs, soups, stews, moles and more. It is similar to the Greek and Turkish versions of oregano that are more closely related to the mint family.
How to use Mexican oregano for cooking
It is quite easy to use this herb. There are a number of different ways depending on your intended use and application. If using in a soup or stew, you can simply add a pinch or two and let it simmer. For rubs, marinades, and sauces we recommend crushing and rubbing between your fingers to release the natural oils. Alternatively a great use is to lightly toast the leaves in a pan or in the over. Try using our Mexican oregano with sea salt, ancho chili powder, coriander and brown sugar for a nice rub on a skirt steak or other cuts of meat.
