Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning


I absolutely love the steak at Texas Roadhouse. That delicious, flavorful seasoning that packs a punch with every single bite. My family would go to Texas Roadhouse just for that steak – it was that good! But with a big family, those steak dinners can really add up. So I decided to try making my own version of their infamous seasoning at home. And guess what? It was a huge hit! The steaks turned out so juicy and full of flavor, just like at the restaurant. Keep reading for my recipe and tips for making the best homemade Texas Roadhouse seasoning.

What cut of steak works best?

I like using ribeye or sirloin steak when making this Texas Roadhouse copycat seasoning. The flavor really penetrates into the meat well and gives you that perfect medium rare inside with a crusty, spiced outside. Ribeye is my personal favorite for this seasoning blend. Make sure to choose a nice thick cut of steak too, at least 1 inch thick, to allow time for the seasoning to work its magic.

How early should I season the steak?

For best results, coat your steaks with this homemade seasoning at least 2-3 hours in advance, or even the night before. Letting it really soak in draws out all those juicy, beefy flavors. I like to seal the seasoned steak tight in a gallon size freezer bag and let it hang out in the fridge until I’m ready to grill. Just remember to let it sit out for 30 minutes before throwing it on the hot grill.

What if my seasoning turns out spicy?

The amount of spiciness in this recipe really comes down to the type of chili powder you use. I prefer one with medium heat but if you accidentally grab a hotter variety, no worries! Just cut back to 1 teaspoon of chili powder instead of the 2 teaspoons listed. Taste the blend first before adding more. Everyone’s heat tolerance is a bit different. And serving with a nice cold beer helps too!

Should I make a big batch of this?

Yes, absolutely make extra! This seasoning keeps very well in an airtight container for a couple months. I like to keep a batch handy to use on all types of meats – pork chops, chicken, even burgers. Shake it on some oven fries or homemade potato wedges for a restaurant style side dish. It’s so versatile. Gift a cute jar of it for the grill masters in your life too!
