What's New in Your Pantry? Montreal Steak and Chicken seasonings

Grill seasonings

From Kathie, in Rhode Island:

My favorite quick and easy go to seasoning during grilling season.

[Lydia's Notes] Yep, I have Montreal Steak Seasoning on my spice rack, too (I haven't tried the others in Kathie's pantry). In fact, this post reminded me that there's a grilled tofu recipe here on the blog that I've been meaning to update and share with you, so watch for that one soon. According to Wikipedia, Montreal steak spice had its beginnings in Schwartz's deli in Montreal, where a grill man added the spices used in Montreal smoked meat to flavor his meats on the grill. The mix usually contains garlic, coriander, pepper and cayenne pepper, dill, and salt. It imparts a distinctive flavor to any meat you toss on the grill. Do you use any of these spice blends? Here are some recipe ideas:

Grilled tofu wraps, from The Perfect Pantry
Cedar plank spice-rubbed salmon, from Skinnytaste
Beautiful roasted vegetables, from The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Grilled chicken pasta in a tomato cream sauce, from Kevin & Amanda
Grilled steak quesadillas, from Favorite Family Recipes
Montreal steak potatoes, from Karma-free Cooking
Marinated flank steak, from Add a Pinch

WHAT'S NEW IN YOUR PANTRY?

  1. Find something in your pantry, fridge or freezer, cupboards, or kitchen that wasn't there 10 years ago. Maybe it's a spice or condiment you use now that you didn't know existed back then. Maybe it's a new version of something you've always had (a different brand of soy sauce or olive oil?). Or, maybe it's a tool or utensil that's essential to the way you cook today. Maybe it's something you discovered here on The Perfect Pantry! If you haven't had your own kitchen for 10 years, find something you have now that you didn't have a year ago.
  2. Snap a photo, quick and easy with your smartphone! 
  3. Email the photo to me: lydia@theperfectpantry.com.
  4. Include your name, and where your pantry is located (city, or state, or country).
  5. Make sure to say what the pantry item is (especially if your photo has more than one thing in it), and include a sentence or two about why it's in your pantry.

You may send as many photos as you like, whenever you like. Please send each photo in its own email (easy to do from your smartphone), with your name on each one. Send one photo, ten photos, or more. I have tons of things in my pantry now that weren't there 10 years ago.

***You may send any item, food or nonfood, from your pantry/kitchen. If you send a photo of a food ingredient I don't have, I will try to get it and create a recipe with it. 

I'm looking forward to sharing your photos, so snap a shot and email to me:

lydia@theperfectpantry.com

Thanks!

Seasonings like this are really great to have on hand. They can quickly turn bland into Mmmm. I always have the Montreal steak seasoning in my pantry.

I am always attracted to seasoning blends, and then they sit neglected on the pantry shelf!

Wow!!
