Pre-mixed seasoning blends are perfect for the home cook with a busy lifestyle.  Add this Roast Beef Seasoning Blend to a slow-roasted beef, a pan-seared steak, or toss it with some roasted potatoes.  Perfect flavour for the serious meat eater and vegetarian too!

I love having homemade seasoning blends on hand.  And, there are two reasons for that.  The first reason is that I can purchase individual spices and herbs at my local bulk store and make my own seasoning blends at home for a fraction of the cost.

And, the second reason is that by making my own seasoning blends, I know exactly what is going into them, and I can control the flavour profile and sodium levels. 

Of course, there’s always the bonus of having seasoning blends ready to go and not having to measure out different spices and herbs, or whisking them together.  With this particular Roast Beed Seasoning Blend, I can make anything taste like a roast beef Sunday dinner without all of the fuss.

And, as an extra bonus, the entire seasoning blend is vegetarian friendly!  I don’t know about you, but whenever I cook with meat at home, my two vegetarians will often comment on how great the dish smells, and it saddens me that the dish is off limits to them.  But, if I dice up some potatoes, toss them in olive oil and add a generous sprinkling of Roast Beef Seasoning Blend, they get to enjoy the smells and tastes just like I do!

Now, this seasoning is not just limited to beef or potatoes.  You can most certainly use it to create a fake beef stock for a soup or stew.  Simply add one tablespoon of the seasoning blend to four cups of boiling water and whisk it to combine.  The flour in the blend will help to thicken the stock, making it perfect for soups, stews, and even gravies!

  1. This is fabulous! I don’t like buying a lot of pre-made spice mixes either, because I’m always worried about what fillers are in them. As a non-beef eater, I like the tip about using this to make a faux-stock, or to put with potatoes!

  2. I LOVE this! I’m such a huge fan of making DIY seasoning blends at home, because just like you, I can control the amount of sodium. And most of the time, I have the exact seasonings in my cabinet that are in the seasoning blend bottles. I’m using this the very next time I make any type of beef!

    1. Same here, Megan. I always have a good collection of spices on hand, so making a large batch of blended seasoning like this one, is always easy for me.

  3. This is fantastic!! I am always looking for a good beef but not only for beef – all purpose type seasoning! I love buying my spices in bulk and making my own mixes ahead of time. Homemade is so much better! You control the quality, the sodium the flavors. Just a win-win situation in my opinion. Printing this recipe now!

  4. We are serious meat eaters to this is perfect! Although, we are trying (very hard) to do meatless days (so hard!) so this working on potatoes is great! Maybe it would work on earthy veggies too? We’d love to experiment 🙂

  5. This is such a great idea! I don’t know why I’ve never thought to do this. I probably have all these individual spices sitting on my spice rack. And I love the fact that you can add this to veggies. I bet it would take potatoes to the next level. Will be trying soon 🙂

  6. I do like your seasoning blend and you’re absolutely right about it being not just cheaper but tastier too. We make several seasoning blends, especially for our ribs and pork but we haven’t made a beef one. We haven’t used flour in our blend, what a good idea. Have you tried Wondra flour? It would be great for just this type of recipe. It’s granulated and pourable. It would work great in a shaker. I’m pinning to make this for our beef roasts.

  7. Another great idea! I usually go to TJ Max or Marshall’s and buy my seasonings there’s but you’re totally right. It’s so much healthier and better to make it myself. Not to mention economical. I have a gorgoues roast in my freezer for dinner on Sunday and I’ll season it with this. But I bet it would taste delicious too on a roasted chicken!! Mmm!!

    1. Thank you. I have never worked with gluten free flour, so I really could tell you for sure. I’m sure a one to one ratio would be the same though.

  8. I fully agree with you – the best reason for making things homemade is simply because you know what’s going in there. I am pinning this for later use as I am sure it will come in handy! Thanks!

  9. This is such a great idea – I make a lot of homemade spice blends for things like tacos or fajitas, but I’ve never considered adding flour to make them appropriate for stocks and gravies. What a great way to flavor soup and thicken it at the same time!
