How to make Porcini rub

  Super quick and easy this one, all you need is a blender, dried Porcini (Boletus edulis) mushrooms, spices, and salt / pepper.  This can be used in a host of different ways, from rubbing in to meat, seasoning roast veg, adding to risottos, or just wherever a bit of extra Porcini goodness might be required.

Dried Porcini


- 30g dried Porcini
- 1 tbsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp of chilli flakes
- 1 tsp sugar
- ½ tsp salt
- ½ tsp pepper

There is no one way of making this rub - you can add herbs instead of spices if you're using it to coat roast veg, perhaps a bit more sugar if you want more of a glazed crust, just get creative and tailor the rub to its application.

I'm going to using my Porcini powder to rub on to steak and pan fry (next blog post), so went for a lightly spiced powder.  Simply chuck all the ingredients in to a blender, blitz until a smooth powder and there you have it, super easy, but super tasty.

The quantities listed above will be enough for 5/6 medium-sized steaks.
