COPYCAT MONTREAL STEAK SEASONING — Make your favorite steak seasoning at home. Perfect for grilling beef, chicken and pork, or for seasoning potatoes and vegetables.
I don’t know about you, but I just can’t bear to grill my steaks and burgers without a sprinkling of Montreal Steak Seasoning. But wouldn’t you know, last time we grilled burgers, I realized I was out.
But rather than making a trip to the store, I decided to try and mix up my own version of the classic spice mix at home.
I just made a batch. I have a bottle of the original here, so I did a side by side comparative taste test. I tweaked a little, but for the most part…very similar! I estimate it being about 20% the overall cost to make my own!!! Thank you! ~ Alycia
It worked perfectly! There are quite a few recipes on the Internet for Montreal Steak Seasoning, so I sort of combined them to suit my tastes.
I do love the coarse texture of the store-bought version, so rather than using all ground spices, I opted for things like peppercorns, mustard seed, and coriander seed.
If you have a mortar and pestle or spice mill, that’s great! If not, you can put your spices in a zip top bag and crush them with a heavy rolling pin, or the edge of a cast iron skillet. That’s what I did, and it worked great.
Now that I know how easy it is to make my favorite steak seasoning at home, I might just keep doing it this way. And this would be a great gift for the grilling aficionado in your life!
And here’s a little secret my brother recently shared with me. This stuff is amazing on hash browns! I don’t know why I never thought of it myself, but trust me, you’ve got to give it a try!
