Quebec Steak Seasoning is a premium blend of herbs and spices that enhances the flavor of beef, pork, and poultry. Derived from the dry-rub mix used in preparing Montreal smoked meat, which itself is adapted from pickling mixes originally used in Eastern Europe and Romanian Jewish cuisine, our seasoning is a testament to the rich culinary traditions of Quebec.
The original recipe for Canadian steak seasoning is believed to have been created by Morris "The Shadow" Sherman, a Jewish deli owner in Montreal. The blend soon became popular among Montreal's Jewish community and was eventually used to season steaks and other meats. Today, Canadian steak seasoning is widely used in Canada and the United States, and there are many variations of the blend available.
Our Quebec Steak Seasoning is a chunky blend of dill, coriander, pepper, and other spices that truly enhance the flavor of steak. It is also wonderful in pot roasts and beef stews, and even pairs well with poultry. For a carnivorous treat, marinate good steaks in red wine and a heavy coating of Quebec Steak Seasoning for 30 minutes before grilling.
Overall, Canadian steak seasoning has evolved over time from a simple blend of herbs and spices to a complex seasoning blend with many variations. Its origins in Montreal and its popularity in Canadian and American cuisine have made it a staple seasoning for steaks and other meats..
