What is Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning?
For those unfamiliar, Texas Roadhouse is a popular steakhouse chain in the U.S., known for its amazing hand-cut steaks and lively atmosphere. One of the secrets to their lip-smacking steak is their proprietary seasoning. While the exact recipe remains a well-guarded secret, many have tried to replicate its unique flavor profile. It’s a delightful blend of salty, peppery, and aromatic spices that truly elevates the taste of the steak.
Why is Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning So Popular?
It’s not just about the taste – it’s the experience. Imagine biting into a steak that’s been perfectly grilled, with a crust that’s slightly crispy but not burnt, delivering a burst of flavors in every bite. That’s the magic of Texas Roadhouse Steak Seasoning. Its popularity isn’t a fluke. Over the years, this seasoning has developed a devoted fan base, many of whom swear by its flavors and claim that no BBQ or grilling session is complete without it.

Oh, honey, you’re not the only one who’s tried to sneak this seasoning into their pantry! While Texas Roadhouse doesn’t sell the exact blend in stores, they do offer a version of it for sale in their restaurants called “Steak Seasoning”. It’s a close sibling to what they use in-house and can give your homemade steaks that familiar punch of flavor.
How Does Texas Roadhouse Ensure Consistency in their Seasoning?
Ever wonder why every steak you order at different Texas Roadhouse locations tastes almost identical? The key is consistency.

- 2 big pinches (teaspoons) of Kosher salt
- 2 teaspoons of that sweet brown sugar (white sugar’ll work if that’s what you’ve got in your pantry)
- 1 good ol’ teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper (the fresher, the better!)
- A 1/2 teaspoon each of smoky paprika and zesty chili powder
- A lil’ 1/4 teaspoon each of garlic powder, garlic salt, onion powder, and bright yellow turmeric
Let’s get mixin’, partner!
- Grab a bowl ’bout medium-sized, a plastic bag big enough to fit a whole gallon (make sure it’s got one of them zip tops), a pair of trusty scissors, and an empty spice jar with holes on top for shakin’.
- Start off with 2 hearty tablespoons of that Kosher salt, and toss ’em right into your bowl.
- Sprinkle in 2 teaspoons of brown sugar. If you’ve only got the white kind, don’t you fret, it’ll do just fine.
- Next, measure out a 1/4 teaspoon of that garlic goodness – both the powder and the salt, the onion powder, and that sunny turmeric. Toss all them fine spices into your mixin’ bowl.
- Now, sprinkle in a 1/2 teaspoon each of your paprika and chili powder. Gives it that kick!
- Don’t forget your black pepper! Add a full teaspoon. If you’ve got that fresh ground pepper, well, that’ll make this blend sing!
- Gently stir everything together in the bowl, make sure all those spices are getting to know each other real well.
- Carefully pour your seasonin’ mix into your gallon-sized plastic bag and seal ‘er up tight. Give it a good ol’ shake until everything’s blended together nice and even.
- Now, this is the fun part, take them scissors and snip a lil’ corner off the bottom edge of the bag. Make sure it’s just the right size to pour into your spice jar without spillin’.
- Time to fill up that spice jar! Pour in your freshly made seasonin’, ready for your next BBQ or cookout.
