For a long time Montreal’s population was largely made up of British and French immigrants. This area was the birth place of Montreal Steak Seasoning. This wonderful steak seasoning was supposedly discovered when a chef used pastrami seasoning on a steak. Legend claims this seasoning was first used in Canadian deli’s in the early 1900’s.
In addition to steak this coarse seasoning can also be used on oven baked fries and is also a palate pleasing hamburger seasoning. The seasoning really brings the flavor of the hamburger through the entire bite. My personal best for Montreal is one “steakhouse” green beans. Saute fresh green beans in butter and Montreal Steak Seasoning. That’s literally it. Best side dish ever! Because of the citrus component in our Montreal, it is also quite delicious on chicken and fish.
Our bold Montreal Steak Rub is hand blended from coarse sea salt, coarse black pepper, yellow mustard seed, granulated garlic, roasted minced onion, coriander seed, caraway seed, red bell pepper, lemon peel, and dill weed.
