Montreal Steak Marinade

"This recipe is exactly what is written on the side of the McCormick's Montreal Steak Seasoning Container. I've been using it for several years and never bothered to write it down until I bought a new container and it didn't have it on it. Talk about panic. The recipe is good for I pound of steak so adjust it according to how many steaks you're making."

    Absolutely delicious!!! Marinated sirloin strip steaks for a little over 3 hours in the refrigerator, took out for 30 minutes prior to grilling on the bbq. Seared the steaks on high and then cooked over indirect heat until desired doneness... medium well. Better than expensive steak houses. This is our "Go To" recipe from now on! :) Thank you for the recipe!! :)

    I also love this marinade. Used it off the small bottle all the time. Bought the large bottle of seasoning and the recipe was gone. I am glad that someone posted it. It is on the dinner for tonight. I serve it with sauted onions.

    Best steaks I ever made, except I substituted Worcestershire sauce once quite by mistake. I liked that, too.

    This is quick & easy. If on hand - add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. Both compliment flavor!


I'm a landscape contractor in the Washington Metro area. I design, install, maintain trees and booshes. Since my Sweetie Pie often comes home late from work, I also do the cooking. I'm running out of ideas on what to cook every day and then I found the Recipe Zaar. Life may never be the same again!<img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket">
