Planning to make some of this tomorrow for the steaks I’m thawing out. Don’t store your spices and herbs too close to the stove/range because the heat breaks them down .. they do better in a cool, dark place.
I put it in a magic bullet and ground it down fine, sprinkled it liberally on some steaks, and it tastes great. No complaints from the kids either. Thanks!
so glad to hear it mike. sometimes no complaints from the kids is all we can ask for! 🤣
