Believe it or not, porcini mushrooms make a wonderful ingredient in spice rubs when ground into a powder. In addition to earthy mushroom flavor, they bring a lot of meat-friendly umami. We used this rub with grass-fed beef steaks, but you could use it on kobe beef, bison, wild boar, pork or poultry.
Ingredients: (Makes 1/4 Cup)
2 tbsp Porcini Powder (you can also grind your own from dried porcini mushrooms – see how to grind mushroom powder)
1 tbsp Dried Thyme
1/2 tsp Garlic Powder
1 tsp Salt
1. Grind all ingredients together in a coffee grinder, spice grinder, or small food processor.
2. Rub the resulting powder on your meat of choice.
3. Optional, but ideal: rest the meat in your refrigerator for a couple of hours prior to cooking to allow the rub flavors to better penetrate it.
4. Grill, broil, pan-roast, or otherwise cook the meat as you normally would.
