One of the things I love about Canadians is that we consider anything warmer than -10 degrees to be 'grilling weather'. While people in warmer countries are complaining about a dusting of snow like it's a blizzard we're standing outside by our BBQ's with our jackets unzipped talking about how balmy it's been when the temperature hovers around freezing.
The past few weeks have had a lot of 'balmy' days, and on one of them I took advantage and stomped out back to fire up the grill for some delicious BBQ steak. And what's a juicy steak without....
Montreal Steak Spice Mix
1 tablespoon peppercorns
1 tablespoon sea salt
1.5 teaspoons dried garlic flakes
1.5 teaspoons coriander seeds
1.5 teaspoons dill seeds
1.5 teaspoons red chili flakes
Pour the mix into an empty pepper grinder.
Grill your delicious steak(s) to perfection.
Grind the desired amount of mix on top of your steaks and enjoy!
We ate our steaks the other night with steamed veggies and my bacon and chive roasted potatoes.
I've eaten (and enjoyed) the pre-made Montreal steak seasoning from the grocery store and Bulk Barn, but they don't even come CLOSE to tasting as good as this homemade fresh ground variety. I have never tested anything so delicious. So good in fact, we're having steak again tonight!
