What is the best way to season a steak?

  1. Bring your steaks to room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes before cooking.
  2. Add dry rubs or salt just before cooking. If you add salt in advance, it will draw water out of the meat which makes it more difficult to get a hard, crusty sear.
  3. If using a wet marinade, marinade at least 30 minutes. Bring to room temperature for 30 to 60 minutes. Wipe off any excess marinade before cooking.

  1. This is great! We were going on vacation and I didn’t want to pack a bunch of seasonings, so I was searching for something that would have everything I needed in one jar. This is it! Great on steaks, burgers, even grilled chicken! It is just like the store brand Montreal Steak Seasoning!
