Here’s the rub. Dried porcini mushrooms are already rich in flavor and rather hard to improve upon, but the Clif Family has done just that. Sweet and earthy, dried porcinis are blended with rich spices such as cumin, mustard, Chinese five-spice, brown sugar and garlic. The result is this complex porcini mushroom rub that your family grill master will soon deem essential. Be prepared to revolutionize your summer grilling and marinating, California style.
Clif Family Kitchen is also home to a winery in St. Helena, California. We imagine pairing this flavorful spice rub with one of their full-bodied Zinfandels. Only a big, bold red could stand up to the umami of this rub.
Tip of the Tongue:
Big bold red meats like ribeye and filet mignon are best for the bold flavors of this rub, but experiment with some extra virgin olive oil and make a marinade for asparagus and summer squash.
