Grilled steak next to pepper and onions
LongHorn Steakhouse Uses 3 Iconic Seasonings
LongHorn Steakhouse has earned a following over the last 40 years for their delicious meat that is seasoned with one of their three iconic blends: char, grill, and prairie dust.
While the steakhouse keeps its spice-mix ingredients a secret, many copycat recipes and fans have successfully mimicked the grill seasoning and prairie dust seasoning.
LongHorn Steakhouse also sells the grill seasoning online and in certain stores. With garlic powder, salt, paprika, and onion powder, it's the simplest of the three seasonings.
The prairie dust seasoning includes black pepper, cayenne, coriander, paprika, and turmeric. It's used over the chain's grilled sirloin, but would also work on veggies and poultry.
The char seasoning remains the biggest mystery, but it's also the most recommended blend. It's found on bone-in grilled cuts like ribeye and T-bone.
