For the longest 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 fuses the British cravings for beefsteaks with the French flair for seasoning and the end result is a robust flavor explosion. Legend claims this seasoning was first used in Canadian delis in the early 1900’s.
Montreal locals also enjoy a hoagie (or sub sandwich) called the Montreal Steak Sandwich which is made using Montreal Steak Seasoning as a rub. This seasoned meat is then cooked in a skillet with mushrooms and onions.
In addition to steak this coarse seasoning can also be used on oven baked fries and is also a palate pleasing hamburger seasoning. One of my favorite ways to utilize this flavorful blend in in sweet potato “buns” that I make as a healthier option to the flour laden version. 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!
Our bold Montreal Steak Rub is hand blended from coriander seed, black pepper, red bell pepper, onion, garlic, dill, coarse sea salt, caraway seed, thyme, and lemon peel.
