Best Spices for Beef
“Beef, it’s what’s for dinner” says the popular slogan. Beef is such a staple and versatile component of so many meals. With a few spices and some imagination you can create Chipotle Beef Tacos, or a fresh beef tenderloin seared in Pumpkin Pie Spice and Beer Powder, or even a savory Beef Stew which included Bay Leaves, Shake on Steak, a chunky pepper, salt and spice blend. Quebec Seasoning is also very popular for steaks and originated up North, across the border. Steak and Prime Rib Seasoning, Garlic Pepper and Lemon Pepper are also very popular!
We can’t talk about beef spices without touching on ground beef and its variations that include hamburgers, meatballs, and meatloaf. Our Meatloaf Seasoning is considered one of the best beef spices. It’s a blend of onions, peppers, spices, and sugar that make up a mean meatloaf. It’s a customer favorite. Go ahead and use it in your hamburgers and meatballs, too.
You don’t have to wait for St. Patrick's Day to serve up Corned Beef. One of our tv segments featured a Grilled Corned Beef this year and it was delicious. A blend of spices was used like a rub, and the beef was grilled.
Beef Spices for Ribs
It seems like everyone grills 365 days a year now, North or South, East or West. And ribs are a popular favorite. Our Rib Rub has won barbeque contests and is a customer favorite. Just rinse the ribs and pat dry, rub with a little oil, then sprinkle on the rib rub. We suggest you cover them in plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours before grilling or baking- let those spices do their job and soak in, tenderizing and flavoring the beef. You will have some mouthwatering ribs, so make sure and fix a lot!
Speaking of grilling, feel free to not only use one of our delicious blends, but to make up your own creation! We see more and more competition barbequers come through our doors, so we now stock many “basics” that people use in creating their own personal blends - Bourbon Powder, Beer Powder, Honey Powder, Hickory Powder, and Dried Vinegar, to name a few.
The best spices for beef are really determined by you and your personal tastes. Smoky, sweet, stewed, grilled, there are so many options. The best advice for cooking beef with spices is to experiment. Don’t be afraid to try a new spice, a new recipe, or cooking your beef in a different way. You’ll be surprised at the results!
