How Do I Make Steak Seasoning?
This might be the easiest prep work you’ll ever have to do. Once you combine all the seasonings and spices in a small dish, you simply add to the steak, let it rest, and cook!
How To Season Steak
Seasoning the steak is the simple part! While there are many seasonings and marinades out there, it’s all about letting it rest and really get soaked or rubbed into the steak.
Some people only add on for a couple of minutes before cooking, while some recipes call for 24 hours or more.
One thing is certain. The longer you leave the spice blend on, the more flavorful it will be.

Can I Make This Steak Seasoning Ahead?
You sure can! If you know you’re going to be running short on time, just make it up and mix it together. That way when it’s time to add it to the steak, it’s all ready to be done!
We like having this on hand, mixed up, in our pantry so whenever we want a perfectly seasoned steak we can just rub it on and prepare our steak!
How Do I Store Leftover Steak Seasoning?
The best way to store leftover steak seasoning is in an airtight container until you’re ready to use it again. Label it for the next time you are cooking steaks.
This seasoning recipe will last for several months if you store it in an airtight container in a dark, cool, and dry place. It should be good for several rounds of cooking up steaks or other protein dishes.
Can I Use This Seasoning On Other Proteins?
Absolutely. This would be really great for chicken, fish, and pork chops as well. Once you make it once and get that taste, you’ll agree.
Just make certain that you give the seasoning time to marinate into the meats that you’re adding it to. We recommend seasoning your steak and letting it rest to come to room temperature for about 40 minutes before you prepare it.
