Steak Seasoning
No MSG or preservatives. This product does contain salt.
For steaks, brush both sides with oil then coat one side with season and rub in well. On the other side, do the same using our Great Garlic (optional). Sear over a high heat for 6 - 8 minutes on each side for medium rare. For roasts, roll the meat in seasoning and cook to your taste. Rotisserie cooking is always best as it will help to baste the meat in it's own juices. Steak seasoning is also great on pork chops and roasts.

1-2 lbs ground beef
1 lg onion diced
2 tblsp olive oil 2 bay leaves(opt)
1 can tomato juice
1tblsp M&T Rib Rub
1tblsp M&T Great Garlic (opt.)
Add oil to a sauté pan and sauté onions till translucent, add to a large pot or Dutch oven. Add beef to skillet with 1-2 tblsp Rib Rub (cook on high heat). Cook beef all the way through then add to the pot. Add the tomatoes, kidney beans, bay & tomato juice to the pot (add juice till it just covers the top of the mixture). On high heat, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring occasionally to prevent scorching. When you are at a boil, lower to a simmer and cook for as long as possible.

For chicken chili add diced cooked chicken (I prefer black beans to kidney beans).
For a veggie chili you have a few options. Some use cubed tofu. Some use Gardenburger, which is a vegetable and grain product.
