Test Kitchen Tip

Meaning “joy of the mountain” in Greek, this herb is a member of the mint family and is a cousin to both marjoram and thyme. It has a strong, pungent flavor and benefits from being cooked, rather than being added at the end of cooking, like many other fresh herbs. For this recipe, stir the oregano in once the onions soften.
