When To Add Marjoram To Ground Beef For The Most Flavor
To get the most out of marjoram when cooking ground beef, add it towards the end of the cooking process, when there are only about 10 to 15 minutes left.
The key reason for this is to safeguard the essential oils within the herb, which are responsible for its delicious taste and aroma. They are incredibly sensitive to heat.
The longer marjoram is exposed to high temperatures, the more it loses its aroma and flavor. Adding it at the end of cooking helps preserve its flavor and aroma.
