Montreal Steak Seasoning blends traditional British beef seasoning with French influence. The two styles together make a sought after steak rub unique enough to be consider in its own category.
This coarse mixture of crushed black pepper, kosher salt, garlic, coriander, dill, red pepper flakes brings out the natural flavor of the steak. Like any spice blend attributed to a region, Montreal Steak seasoning will vary slightly from locale to locale. Some blends also include caraway seed, thyme and lemon peel.
The first recorded use of this blend was to preserve meat in a deli in Canada in the late 1920’s.
Montreal seasoning can also be added to your burger mix or sprinkled over fried potatoes or French fries. We also served it at work over fried eggs.
According to one source, there is a local steak sandwich favorite made with seared flank or skirt steak, Montreal Seasoning, mushrooms and onions.

Cindy's Recipes and Writings

As a professional cook, I love creating exciting new recipes on the job as well as at home. Assisting in teaching low-income families how to buy, store and prepare healthy food through Penn State’s alliance with Pennsylvania’s Supercupboard Program was very rewarding. During my 11 years with the Master Gardener program, I taught horticultural therapy to assisted living patients using healthful, fr
esh grown food as a focal point. . My hands-on programs and instruction helped hundreds of children and adults learn about where their food comes from and how important fresh food is for your body.
Currently I’m a cook at a college in Pennsylvania. We prepare everything we can from scratch, including our potato chips that tout the seasoning of the day!
Of course I write about food; it's in my blood!
