Garlic and Herb Rub

This rub recipe is adapted from a recipe Grandma Mo sent me for Garlic Pork Shoulder. Pulling the oregano and parsley from their stems is a little putzy otherwise this recipe could be thrown together in a snap.


  • 2 garlic heads, separated and peeled
  • ½ T. kosher salt
  • 1 T. whole black peppercorns
  • 2 to 3 c. loosely packed fresh oregano leaves
  • ½ to 1 c. loosely packed parsley leaves
  • ¼ c. olive oil
  • 2 T. white wine vinegar


  1. Place garlic, salt, peppercorns and oregano in a food processor. Process until garlic is chopped.
  2. Add olive oil and vinegar and process to form a thick paste.
  3. Spread over meat such as Pork Butt.

I knew this rub would taste great because of its strong garlic and oregano smell as I rubbed it on my pork shoulder.
