Economical to make and it's great on steaks, fish and chicken too!

I have never used the original, so I can't compare, but this is quit good. I have used it on Sweet Potato Fries, and on salmon filets cooked on the Foreman grill, and both were delicious. Now I guess I better go buy a steak to try it on :)

this was too heavy on the coriander to be the like the McCOrmicks one....will make again but cut back on the coriander. You also need to use coarse salt and pepper to be like the real thing.....

Had never tried the Montreal Seasoning due to it costing $100 to be sent to Oz for 4 little bottles of it (outrageous)....thank you for this recipe.....tastes great too

Be watchful of the Sodium in this recipe - 2791 mg. This is not a healthy seasoning.

Very tasty and flavorful seasoning! Thanks Bella! Made for the Iron Chef game.

I did a side-by-side taste test and this could be as close to a dead ringer as they come. The only difference is that I believe the original uses a coarse-grained salt, but my steak couldn't tell the difference!

I thought I had McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning in the spice cabinet - but I couldn't find it anywhere and needed it for My Favorite Burgers #240113. I found this copycat recipe, make it, and was very pleased with the result. It smells just like the original (or just how I remember the original smelling - I haven't used it since last grilling season!). Easy to put together, with ingredients that I had on hand. It was so easy, in fact, that I'm not going to replace the McCormick's version - I'll just use this instead. Thanks for a great recipe!

Too heavy on the coriander, it should probably be 1/3 or 1/4 as much. Too much salt, can be halved. Adding in 1/2 tbsp of dill weed can improve it, and using any kind of smoked salt. Sea salt is the only real option also.

Holy Salt Batman!!! I would suggest cutting the salt in half because I could only taste the salt and none of the other spices.
