And fresh oregano works great in an herb crust for grilled steak or lamb, says qianning: Chop and mix with a little olive oil and other fresh herbs to taste, pat thickly onto the meat, then grill over a hot fire. The meat “stays very moist, and the crust adds a subtle but not overwhelming taste,” says qianning.
