homemade Texas Roadhouse-style steak seasoning

Texas Roadhouse is known for its deliciously seasoned steaks, but the exact seasoning blend they use is a closely guarded secret. However, you can create a similar seasoning at home that captures the essence of Texas Roadhouse’s flavorful steaks. Here’s a homemade Texas Roadhouse-style steak seasoning recipe:


  • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoon dried thyme
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional for a touch of sweetness)
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (adjust for spiciness)


  1. In a bowl, combine the kosher salt, freshly ground black pepper, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, dried oregano, dried thyme, brown sugar (if using), and cayenne pepper.
  2. Mix all the ingredients together until well combined. Ensure that the brown sugar is evenly distributed throughout the seasoning blend.
  3. Transfer the Texas Roadhouse-style steak seasoning to an airtight container or a spice jar with a tight-sealing lid.
  4. Before grilling or cooking your steaks, generously sprinkle the seasoning on both sides of each steak. You can let the steaks sit with the seasoning for a little while before cooking to allow the flavors to penetrate the meat.
  5. Grill, pan-sear, or cook your steaks to your desired level of doneness.
  6. Enjoy your homemade Texas Roadhouse-style seasoned steak!

This seasoning blend provides a balance of savory, smoky, and slightly spicy flavors that complement the taste of grilled or pan-seared steaks beautifully. Adjust the cayenne pepper to your preferred level of spiciness, and feel free to customize the blend to suit your taste. Whether you’re grilling up ribeyes, sirloins, or T-bones, this seasoning will add a delicious Texas Roadhouse-inspired flavor to your steaks.
