I, once again, had the pleasure of going to Saltgrass. I love Saltgrass. The best steak I’ve ever had was from Pappas Bros, but this is no doubt the best steak house I go to regularly. If I go, I always get the Pat’s Ribeye or the Prime Rib. The last several times I’ve gotten the prime rib. Definitely the best prime rib I’ve ever had (though, admittedly, I haven’t had all that much -- usually a ribeye kinda guy).

Anyway, I learned something very useful. My dad asked about their seasoning. Now, my favorite seasoning is that produced by Texjoy. Conceivably, this steak seasoning could endanger Texjoy’s rank as the greatest of all steak seasoning companies. But, when we looked on the label, we found that Texjoy mixes Saltgrass’ "Seven Spice" steak seasoning for them. So, Texjoy still rules the world, as far as I am concerned. If you haven’t had Texjoy, and you grill steaks, you must try it. It is the best.

I also learned a little bit about how they prepare the prime rib. But, maybe later...

I too love Saltgrass. Now if you are in Ft. Worth you might try Lonesome Dove or Del Frisco’s or even the Silver Fox (on University). The Silver Fox is absolutely the best steakhouse I have ever eaten at - this being said it is also one of the most expensive. We eat there only on special occasions.

It is good to know that I have a fellow meat eater blogging.

I love the Saltgrass Steak spice!

I bought a large bottle at the Costco in Fort Worth but since then I have not been able to find it. Do you know where I can buy some more? Do they sell it at Saltgrass Steak House?

Thanks for your help!

Yes. Saltgrass sells it, at least last I checked.

I found Saltgrass Seven Spice at

Kurt 2005-01-16 08:34:00 has it. I buy it by the case for small gifts. Everyone loves it! I discovered it on one of my three trips to the DFW area. If anyone wants to know how to make the Saltgrass Steakhouse Border Sauce, let me know. I found out the ingredients...
