Seasoning Salt for Steak

This is not a single recipe for steak seasoning salt.  Rather it is a collection of templates that you can mix and match and customize to make your own seasoning salt for steak.

There are two basic templates:
1/3 Paprika,  1/3 Salt, 1/3 Everything else
1/2 Salt, 1/2 everything else

For the 1/3 Paprika,  1/3 Salt, 1/3 Everything else template here are some thoughts on

1/3 Paprika1/3 Salt1/3 Everything Else
Smoked PaprikaGarlic SaltPepper and MSG
Mild PaprikaOnion SaltPepper
Hot PaprikaFinely Granulated Salt

For the "1/2 Salt, 1/2 everything else" template, fill it out like this:
1/2 Salt1/2 Everything Else
Garlic Salt
Onion Salt
Finely Granulated Salt

Notes on Ingredients:

  • This is not a good place to use "Kosher" salt, or sea salt.  You don't want the large grains often found in those types of salt.
  • A lot of people hate using "flavored Salts..."
  • A lot of people hate MSG, or think it is bad for them. ...

 Older Notes

To make enough for a pound or two of beef:

1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika
1/2 tsp Onion or Garlic seasoning salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp another spice
1/8 Accent or MSG (optional)

Ideas that did not work.  (Learn from my mistakes, avoid your own!)

1 tsp Smoked Paprika
1 tsp Garlic seasoning salt
1 tsp Ground Pepper
1/3 tsp Accent (MSG)

This was much too peppery.  If I was going to try something like this again, I would use 1/2 the pepper.
