Wow your Friends with Montreal Steak

At our house we grill every Saturday night. Hubby is the grill master and I’m the one who comes up with the seasonings.  It gives me a “sort of night off” from cooking, since all I have to do is put the meal together in my head and not on the stove!

McCormick grill mates Montreal steak seasoning is the secret ingredient in my latest grilled meal.  

The seasoning is a combination of coarsely ground peppers, garlic and spices for bolder tasting steaks and burgers.  

I combined it with red pepper flakes for some heat and brown sugar to give it a sweet hint of flavor, too.  

It made a super tasting meal and both hubby and I loved it.
