Montreal Steak Spice

Again I have no post for today. My mind is on other things/people.. but I didn’t want to have nothing posted.

I posted this recipe in early July and so far this year I’ve had to make 3 batches!!! That is how good it is lol! That is why I thought I could get away with sharing it again !

Let me start by saying that Chris LOVES bbq… and even more so… bbqed steaks. He likes them cooked most ways, with or without bbq sauce, with steak sauce, but especially with this spice mixture. When we rub/bbq them with this he doesn’t use any bbq or steak sauce on them… that’s how good they taste!

This takes all of about 5 minutes to make, and if you don’t shake the jar the layers look great in the jar for gifting!

Here are the ingredients. (Except for the salt and pepper 😳)

Measure all the spices into your jar (see what I mean about the layers?)

Shake the jar and it’s ready to use!

Rub it on your (room temperature) steaks about a half hour before you start to bbq….

Bbq to desired doneness and enjoy the wonderful flavour!

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 2 tsp. Coarse salt
  • 2 tbsp. paprika
  • 2 tbsp. onion powder
  • 1 tbsp. coriander
  • 1 tbsp. dill
  • 1 tbsp. crushed red pepper flakes

Directions

  1. Measure all ingredients into jar.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Rub onto room temperature steaks half hour before cooking.
  4. Cook to desired doneness.

Hamburger Seasoning Mix

Here is another great “Seasoning” mix. This time it is for making burgers.

There is nothing like a great tasting burger right off the grill for dinner. Knowing it is homemade makes it tastes so much better!

This seasoning takes only a few minutes to whip up and you can use it as a seasoning on the burgers while they are being grilled, or in the actual burger when you are mixing/pressing them up. I like to put the seasoning right in the burgers but that is entirely up to you!

I didn’t take an actual picture of the burgers once they were done because really, they mostly all look alike when done lol! The picture below is just a picture I already had of burgers cooking on our grill.

Fast & Easy Pasta Side Dish 

I made this a few weeks ago,  and again last night to have with dinner.

In the time it takes to cook the pasta, you can have the rest ready to throw in.

You could even add some cooked and shredded chicken and additional veggies to make this your main course.

Either way, it is a nice,  light summer side dish!

Jello & Kool-Aid Popsicles

With the hot weather here already, it is nice to have a frozen treat or two ready to beat the heat.  These popsicles are very flavourful and  almost drip free which is great when making them for the little ones! I can remember my ex mother-in-law making these every summer for my kids and their cousins.  The kids (and adults) loved them! It was that memory that prompted me to make them yesterday.

I also made my version of Iced Coffee yesterday, another great treat on a hot day!

Creamy Grape Tomato and Cucumber Salad

When I was preparing dinner last night I realized that I hadn’t figured out a salad to go with it.  I knew I had a container of field grape tomatoes and a cucumber that needed to be used before I could buy anymore.  This salad is the end result of using the two of them up!

This salad uses a minimum of ingredients, is quick and easy to make and goes great with whatever you are grilling for dinner as a refreshing side!
