Montreal Steak Seasoning Recipe - The
Classic North America Blend

Montreal steak seasoning recipe is just perfect for your steaks. This traditional North American blend of spices and herbs is quick and easy-to-make and seasons beautifully whilst adding superb flavours to whatever you're cooking. (See the bottom of the page for other recipes)

Note: I use whole peppercorns, dill and coriander seeds in this Montreal steak spice. If you don't have these, substitute with pre-ground pepper, coriander and dill and cut down the amount you add by half. So for 2 tablespoons peppercorns use 1 tablespoon ground pepper. Reduce any others you don't have whole by half as well.

Toasting and Grinding Tips:

Note: Before grinding, it's worthwhile dry toasting the coriander seeds and peppercorns. This really draws out their flavours and aromas. These fabulous flavours will then transfer to whatever you're cooking.
