Montreal Steak Seasoning Ingredients
Grocery list for Steak Seasoning
- smoked paprika
- coarse black pepper
- granulated garlic
- crushed red pepper
- onion powder
According to Wikipedia this seasoning originated in Canada and is used to flavor grilled meats.
Properly sealed the mix will easily last two years. Store it in a sealed container in your spice cabinet.
This is a great choice for a dry rub. After bringing the steak or meat to room temperature, coat the beef lightly with oil and rub the spice mix into the protein.
Add just prior to grilling. If the steak seasoning sits on the protein for a long length of time the salt in the mix will dry out the meat.
I love that you can personalize the seasoning! Too spicy? Omit the red pepper flakes, want to lower the sodium? Omit the salt. You can totally make this your own!
Making your own spice mix will save money and time.
Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning tastes so much better than storebought!
