You gotta be careful with Dale's Steak Seasoning

Pros:Great on chicken and fish

Cons:Too salty

The Bottom Line: It's too easy to put too much of this stuff on red meat.


I have messed up more meat with Dale’s Steak Seasoning than I care to admit. In fact, I had another incident this afternoon that prompted me to write this review. I’ve finally reached the point where I just don’t like this seasoning anymore on steaks, but it still works great for chicken and fish. I’ve found that red meat soaks this stuff up too much.

Dale’s Steak Seasoning is basically just liquid salt. It’s very highly concentrated, so much that the bottom of your marinade bowl or dish will have salt granules visible when you take out the meat. It has other flavors in it to help give it a sort of grilled taste, but it doesn’t taste anything like Liquid Smoke. Despite the other flavors, this product mostly just makes your meats very salty.

The first time I used Dale’s was on some venison, and I completely ruined it. You see, this stuff is steak seasoning, and should not be confused with marinade. I tried to use it like a marinade and let some venison soak in the stuff overnight. The meat was black by the time I threw it on the grill, and it came out so dang salty that it made me throw up like when you accidentally swallow some water while swimming in the ocean. Man, that sucked!

Dale’s seasoning is made to be put on meat no more than 30 minutes before you cook it. If you are grilling chicken breasts or salmon filets, you only need to splash this stuff on for a little while before you put it on the grill. With steaks, a quick dribble before putting it on is all you need. If you let your steak soak in this stuff, it’ll taste like you’re eating a salt lick. Chicken and fish don’t seem to soak up Dale’s like red meat does, so it still works great for them. With hamburgers, a little spoonful mixed into the meat is all you need.

I know I’m probably not doing things right when I put Dale’s on my steaks, and I admit that. I just don’t like overly salty foods because too much salt tends to drown out other flavors. I’m more interested in herbs and spices that give meats a unique flavor, rather than just making everything taste like Dale’s. You also have to be careful when using Dale’s in conjunction with other spices, because you might be doubling up on salt or salty flavor.

Dale’s Steak Seasoning is a decent product that has been around for over 50 years, but you better be very careful when using it, otherwise you could ruin your food. It is also now available in a reduced sodium blend.

Nutritional info:
One tbsp of this stuff contains 1220 mg of sodium! (Amazon.com incorrectly lists it as 122.)
