Canadian style seasoning ?

Recommended Posts

I get most of my herb's and spices from Penzey's 

 

https://www.penzeys.com

 

 ( original  -  the 'shoot ' that sprouted  of some time ago has a very different Chicago Steak  .  many are very similar and CS is a main item for me )

 

if you get on their email list you get notices of free shipping on reduced ( $ 20 ) totals and free items.

 

and Sauer's

 

https://www.cfsauer.com

 

S has a very fine PrimeRibRub which I like a lot

 

and a Gold imitation vanilla that's fine for Brownies etc  ( for me any way )

 

which brings me to my question :

 

What is Canadian Style Seasoning ?

 

granted there is no one answer

 

Sauers has several Montreal Seasoningxs

 

and there is this :

and this

note the two Rx's are very different.

 

Eh ?

Of course you have. It’s any seasoning you use so long as you apologize to the meat while you’re cooking it, eh?

Hy's Steakhouse (which started in Calgary) has a seasoning salt sold as Hy's of Canada Seasoning Salt through McCormick Canada. It's still my husband's favourite when grilling a steak or burgers, but I don't think I've ever seen a full list of ingredients. You can buy it with or without MSG, though. Here's the bottle we currently have with us in Tucson, which shows a few of the ingredients. 

 

I don't think it's sold in the US except with huge mark-ups through Amazon or similar. We usually bring some with us.

Canadian seasoning? You mean the maple syrup, bacon and beer we put on everything? :raz:

 

What about quatre epices? Nutmeg, cloves, ginger, pepper (but I think some quatre epices blends sub in allspice for one of the other spices?). Used in tourtieres and other French Canadian dishes.

Oui,  but it only really counts if you do it in both official languages.

With undertones of moose and beaver, as well? ;)

I have no idea what it might be, unless it's a clone of Montreal Steak Spice (which I abominate, just for the record) and they're trying to differentiate themselves. It's hard to say. Maybe it's one of those things like "Canadian" bacon, a term used by Americans and mysterious to Canadians. Up here we call that back bacon, or peameal bacon if it's rolled in cornmeal, but it's eaten a lot less than the conventional variety.

I thought Canadian seasoning was gravy.  I'd be hard-pressed to name many things Canadians don't put gravy on. :P

Nope, not a bad thing at all... but only slightly in jest. I've often said if we could figure out a way to offer gravy on our salads at work without wilting the salads, we'd have a hit on our hands. :D

Ok I gotta ask... is the gravy thing more of a Eastern Canada thing? I don't see as much of the gravy-love here in BC (or Vancouver, at least). We're more likely to dump coffee on everything.

When I was in university and occasionally ate in the student pub, The Downstairs John,  I would ask for gravy on my salad.  Everyone but me freaked out.  To each their own. :P

To be honest, I don't even know if it's a thing outside of the small, fairly remote and isolated town I live in. It was more a stab at humor than any attempt at actual helpful information.

And sometimes those attempted stabs at humor bite you on the bum... :D
