DIY - Italian Seasoning, Steak Seasoning, & All Purpose Seasoning

I am really loving making these seasoning mixes myself, rather than have to buy them at the store.  I typically ensure I have these types of spices, so it is easier (and cheaper!!) to make my own mixes.  Plus then I know what is in the seasoning mixes.  It is even a better buy if you can get your spices in bulk from a Dutch pantry.

Italian Seasoning

3 T dried basil

3 T dried oregano

2 T dried marjoram

1 T dried parsley

2 t dried thyme

2 t dried minced onion

1 t dried garlic granules

1 t dried rosemary

1/4 t red pepper flakes

Pulse ingredients into desired consistency.  Store in an airtight container.

I make two versions - one with red pepper flakes and one without for the kiddos.  

Steak Seasoning
½ cup Paprika
¼ cup Sea Salt
¼ cup Sugar
¼ cup Cumin
¼ cup Granulated Garlic
¼ cup Chili Powder
2 tablespoons Mustard Powder
2 tablespoons Ground Black Pepper
2 tablespoons Red Pepper flakes
1 T coriander seeds, crushed
Combine the ingredients. Pulse to desired consistency.  Store in an airtight container. 
Rub steaks with olive oil and generously coat with steak seasoning. Marinate 1 hour before grilling.

All Purpose Seasoning

1 T Sea Salt

1 T Paprika

1 T Garlic Powder

2 t Black Pepper

1 ½ t Cayenne Pepper

1 ½ t Onion Powder

1 ½ t Thyme

1 ½ t Oregano

Combine all ingredients and whisk.  Store in an airtight container.
