I have a question about the recipe "Porcini and Rosemary Crusted Beef Tenderloin with Port Wine Sauce" from TasteFood. What if I don't have a spice grinder? Can I use a Vitamix blender?

Using a Vitamix is waaayyy over the top overkill. Spice grinders; electric or hand cranked are very inexpensive. Useful to have in your arsenal. Using the Vitamix would be like using a cinder block to kill a tiny spider.

Morter and pestle or coffee grinder are alternatives.

I grind all of my spices using a morter and pestle.
