Authentic Canadian Steak Spice, Eh?

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"This is just like the steak spice you find in the Montreal delis in Canada. It is bold and spicy and good on so much more than just steak. Grinding the spice mixture at home only takes a couple of minutes and provides the freshest flavor."

I used dill weed instead of dill seed by mistake but it still worked. My Rib-eye's turned out excellent! This was the perfect balance of salt and spicy for me. I made more than the recipe called...

I only put half the the salt and garlic in. It was wonderful!

Very tasty. I don't have a spice grinder but my mortar and pestle worked well. I made this as written. Thanks for sharing.
