    Just asking: Have you looked in your local supermarket?

      That's the original, but we're trying to come up with the ingredients to make it yourself.

      Has anyone come up with a reasonable facsimile for Montreal Steak Seasoning ?

        fooddownunder.com has 2 different copycats for Lawry's. I'd agree that these seasoned salts are really to your liking and what's in the cupboard.

        Just a thought. When I'm looking for a copycat, I do the rounds of copycat.com, recipezaar, fooddownunder, and a few others, and come up with my own combination, of what suits me. This includes asking what cooks here are using!
        An example is that I cannot get Old Bay seasoning, but BOY, is it in a lot of recipes.I've come up with a combo that suits me.

          I found this online for you:


          But, to be honest, I wouldn't worry too much about the exact mix -- essentially it's a mix of a lot of seasonings/herbs/spices with salt. So if you're missing some of the items listed, I'd think you could adjust.

          To be honest, I never use the seasoned salt and just mix up my own to taste depending on what I'm seasoning -- so I'm sure the sandwich will be great with whichever blend you come up with!

            That Marlboro Man sandwich is awesome. My dad makes it for himself like twice a week. I need to make it again myself.

              JoanN.... I'm wondering why there's cornstarch in that recipe. Do you know?

                My guess is that it's being used as an anti-caking agent.

                  That's what I thought too, but then I also thought that the cornstarch would absorb some juices. Perhaps if the salt, which has a little Too much salt for my liking, were to be used immediately, the CS would not be necessary. I always mix my own seasoning blends. It just seems so logical, especially when using fresh herbs and spices.

                    Yes, I think the cornstarch help with anti-caking. But since other things do as well, I think it is the double use of a thickener: making the seasonings stick to the item better.
