Home-made Montreal Steak Spice (Gluten/Grain, MSG and Preservative Free)

I am always worried about added MSG when buying spice combinations.  I used to suffer from migraines and am a bit paranoid when it comes to ingredients listed as "spices."  For more on MSG you can read my post MSG, I Found You.  When combining all these ingredients to ensure your spices are gluten free and don't contain any additional ingredients.

  • 2 1/2 tablespoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon black pepper
  • 2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon thyme
  • 1 tablespoon coriander
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne

  1. Combine all ingredients and place in a sealed container.
  2. Keep in a dark dry spot.


  1. I will try this spice recipe. I have migraines and am always afraid to try the store bought spices. I'm not allergic to gluten but sometimes when I'm out I stick with the gluten free just to try to be safe from the chemicals.

    1. It is too bad we can't trust a lot of brands, it takes a bit more effort to make it yourself, but this way you will know what is in it. Enjoy.
