How Montreal became the king of spice blends is anyone's guess, but spice maker McCormick has been selling these blends for years. There are probably hundred of recipes for this seasoning, but they are all based on the same idea. Heat and flavor without all the floral herbs of many old world blends.

What You'll Need

  • 2 tablespoons black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons paprika (not smoked)
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (granulated)
  • 1 tablespoon onion (granulated)
  • 1 tablespoon cayenne pepper (use less or omit if preferred)
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1 tablespoon dill seeds

How to Make It

1. Combine all ingredients and store in an airtight container. Keep in a cool, dark place for up to six months. Great for all cuts of and sizes of steak.
