How to Season Steak:

Sprinkle the steak seasoning on the steak. I like to bring the steak to room temperature before cooking. Rub into the meat before pan frying or placing on the grill. You will love how it tastes.

If you do not want to use a dry rub for seasoning your steak, add a tablespoon of olive oil to the seasoning. Add the oil will make a paste to rub into the steak. Either way is good. Just do what you prefer. I prefer to add oil when I am making a grilled steak.

How to Store the Seasoning:

The seasoning blend needs to be stored inside an airtight container. We normally use a mason jar or reuse an old spice container.

Typically, I use a mason jar though because I always have several in the cabinet. They are easy to reuse and so handy.

Just use what you prefer.
