Mexican Oregano is the much more flavorful cousin to the European oregano you find in the grocery store. Much beloved by cooks for its robust flavor, it is used for much more than just Mexican cooking. This delicious ingredient is hard to find outside of specialty stores. We think Steve at Rancho Gordo grows the best Mexican Oregano we can find.
A tip from a good cook in the Yucatan tells us that Mexican Oregano really shines when it's been toasted for a moment or two on a hot, dry skillet.
Use in sauces, in salsas, sauces on simple grilled meat or anywhere authentic, savory flavor is needed.
