We love Jamie Oliver… and this beats the pants off of “KC Masterpiece.” It also works well as a marinade.


1 teaspoon cumin seeds

2 tablespoons fennel seeds 5 cloves

Fresh thyme or lemon thyme Fresh chopped rosemary

Zest and juice of 1 orange

1 bulb of garlic, broken into cloves and peeled

4 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika

6 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1/2 cup organic tomato ketchup

8 tablespoons olive oil 10 bay leaves


Grind the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, and cloves, and add some salt and pepper.

Chop the thyme and rosemary leaves, orange zest and garlic together finely. Put into a bowl with the ground spices, then add the rest of the marinade ingredients and mix’ together.

Score and coat meat before grilling, or marinate in the refrigerator overnight in 3 ziplock bag.
