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!
