Homemade Montreal Steak Seasoning

Montreal Steak Spice is a handy go-to spice rub which is super easy to make at home.

Take care when seasoning as these grinds are quite fine so you may not need as much as you think.


3 tablespoons Salt
3 tablespoons Ground Black Pepper
2 tablespoons Granulated Garlic
2 tablespoons Smoked Paprika
2 tablespoon Granulated Onion
1 tablespoon Dill
1 tablespoon Ground Coriander
1 tablespoon Thai Crushed Red Pepper Flakes
1 tablespoon Dried Mustard


This recipe makes 1 cup.

  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl then transfer to a grinder.
  2. Grind for 10-15 seconds until fully mixed and finely ground.
  3. Store in an airtight container.
  4. Use on pork, and beef.

Of course, the best thing to use it on is STEAK!!! I love a good steak. I like to cut my own when possible. I buy the cuts of beef whole, cut individual steaks and freeze them in plastic wrap inside storage bags. Bone-in Rib Eyes are my favourite, so whenever they are on sale, I stock up.

Serve at a casual dinner party – slice the meat on a cutting board alongside a simple salad and crusty bread. Communal dining with friends and family is just a pleasure of life. Nothing cements friendships better than breaking bread together, or in this case, enjoying a delicious steak dinner.
