Stone House Seasoning Recipe – A quick, easy and delicious seasoning blend that adds so much flavor in a snap!

Stone House Seasoning Recipe - A quick, easy and delicious seasoning blend that adds so much flavor in a snap! //

Hi friends! Do I have a super simple recipe to share with you today, but one that makes all the difference in my cooking!

My Stone House Seasoning.

I keep this seasoning blend beside my cooktop, stashed in small spice jars in the pantry, and love to give it as gifts throughout the year, but especially during the holidays!

What is Stone House Seasoning?

Made of three simple ingredients, it really is one of those seasoning blends that combines the flavors that perk up so many dishes from meats to vegetables with such ease!

Most likely, you already have these three ingredients on hand in your pantry, but by combining them in these specific ratios, you can quickly add a pinch, teaspoon, or more to dishes to add so much flavor in a flash!

Stone House Seasoning Ingredients

  • Kosher Salt – Kosher salt is the preferred salt in this recipe. When testing, I tested using regular table salt as well as sea salt, but found that I greatly preferred the kosher salt in this recipe. If you substitute with another salt, please be sure to consult salt conversions (I’m not providing them here since I still didn’t like it with them) and realize that it is not a 1 to 1 ratio with kosher salt.
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper – I prefer to use my own freshly ground black pepper in my seasoning blend, but you can of course use store-bought ground black pepper for this recipe as well.
  • Granulated Garlic – while I prefer to use granulated garlic in this recipe, if you are in a pinch and only have garlic powder, you can use it as well. The flavor will change slightly, but it will still work. I provide the amount in the recipe below.

It only takes a few moments to blend together the salt, pepper, and garlic but saves so much time in the long run!

Just add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and stir until well combined. Then, transfer to an airtight spice jar or divide into multiple spice jars if you’d like to share with friends and family!

How Long Does Stone House Seasoning Last?

Since you are using pantry staples, the freshness of your Stone House Seasoning will depend on the freshness of your spices – especially the granulated garlic. Using fresh ingredients, your seasoning blend should last in an airtight container for up to a year.

Favorite Recipes Using Stone House Seasoning

I use this house seasoning on a daily basis with everything from meats to vegetables and a pinch on top of my avocado toast in the mornings! It is a definite essential ingredient in my house!

If you are only making Stone House Seasoning to add to one recipe without making it in bulk to have on hand, you’ll use the following:

1 teaspoon Stone House Seasoning
½ teaspoon Kosher salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon granulated garlic

Here’s my Stone House Seasoning recipe. I hope you find it as delicious and useful as I do!

    1. Hi Lisa!
      We use this all the time! I put it on steak and all types of meats – and yes chicken too sometimes. You should be able to find spice jars from Amazon or a kitchen section in your favorite department store. I hope you enjoy it! xo

  1. 5 stars
    I always save my spice jars that I purchase that always contain spices. When empty, I thoroughly wash them and remove all of the the label and then this leaves you with a sticky residue which is easily removed with a bit of mineral spirits, was them again in hot soapy water i drain them on a rack and when dry, they’re ready to use with my own mixes such as Robyn’s Stone House seasoning.
    Wishing everyone a prosperous 2018.

    1. Such a great idea, Margo! Thank you for sharing how your reuse your spice jars! I hope you have a wonderful 2018! xo

    I have made this several times. I make sure I always have an extra one ready. Love the difference it makes on food. 

  3. Love reviewing your recipes and have tried several. Your Alfredo sauce is out of this world great!  

  4. 5 stars
    Your recipes are fantastic. ( I have tried many) So flavorful and easy to make. I wish I lived next door to you in case you have left overs.

    1. I’m just so happy to hear this, Jackie! I’m glad that you enjoy the recipes and love hearing from you! Thanks for the kind comments! Hope to talk to you again soon! xo

    After 40 plus years as a chef I have never aged seasonings as a blend not to doubt you in fact this sounds great,something I may do your, your BBQ sauce is like one of my many I’ve done in the past, it’s a damn good one I do everything myself.I never buy sauces of any kind even my dressing I make from scratch , your a amazing cook and I love your style, and your southern recipes. Thanks
    Chef Ernie

      I am going to use both garlic powder and onion powder.
      Also, I am going to use minced onion and garlic.
      I am on a LOW SALT DIET?

  6. i made this with sea salt and it was too salty. I’ll make it again but next time maybe use 1/4 c. sea salt. It’s a handy combo to have on hand. Thanks, Robyn! Our family has enjoyed so many of your salad entrees this summer! I look forward to your soup recipes this Fall.

    1. Hi Senora,
      I am happy you and your family enjoy the recipes! I will say that your seasoning was too salty because you used the sea salt. I make the recipe with the recipe amount of kosher salt, not sea salt. I hope you try it next time with the regular kosher salt as I think you will enjoy it even more! We keep it on hand all the time and use it on so many dishes!
      I do hope you enjoy the soups and other recipes coming in the fall and all the weeks to come! Thanks! Xo

    I love this seasoning. Used it on a pork roast in the he crock pot and my husband said it was delicious.

    Made a fresh batch for grilled chicken tonight. YUM!

  8. Loved the seasoning…use for french fries (anything potatoes) also. Thank u so much….Now let me tell u how the beef turned out using this seasoning……the best we have ever used. It was soooooooooooooo delicious. Easy too do.

  9. Any thoughts about substituting a jar of sliced pepperoncini instead of whole? Looking forward to giving this one a try. Love your recipes!

    Oh. Em. Gee this stuff is amazing!!!! Decided to try it on a whim and it’s sooooo good! Tried it on baked chicken and steak so far and it is the beeeesssstttt!!! Super quick and easy and really affordable. Will be keeping my kitchen stocked with this stuff.

    1. I’m just thrilled to hear that Desiree! We keep it on the table and by the stove ALL the time! Glad you enjoy it! xo

    Good day from sunny South Africa Robyn. I was looking for a BBQ recipe when I came across yours and the Stone House recipe. I love different salts and I have Black Hawaiian, Pink Himalayan, Brown Oryx Desert and more. But, I do not have any Kosher. What do you suggest instead? Now that I have discovered your page I shall surely visit it again. Ida

  12. Going to the Kitchen right now, to make the Recipe for The Stone House Seasoning.

    Really have enjoyed reading your Blog. Thanks Bunches!!

    Your stone house seasoning is an amazing idea! I put together a jar of it last week, while I was making your bbq recipe, which was a huge hit by the way. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used this seasoning already. Totally in love with the it. Thank you so much.

    I made your stonehouse seasoning. It was great! However, I also made it with white pepper, but cut the amount in 1/2 because white pepper is much stronger, and has a more pungent aroma. It was fantastic too. Something you may want to try.

    Hi Robyn. Just wanted to thank you for this amazing yet so simple seasoning mix. I have just refilled my jar for the second time, this time doubling the amount.

    It really is great on everything…I even tell my sons to take it to the beach when they BBQ. No need to pack multiple bottles of seasoning…just the Stone House will suffice!

    By the way…LOVE your recipes!

    Aloha from Hawaii,


    1. Aww, thank you SO much, Gale! I am so glad to hear that you and your family enjoy this too! It’s become such a part of so many of our meals!
      Thank you so much for the super sweet comment! xo

    I season all my meats with this – it is simply fabulous and so simple. Simple is always best. Tonight I’m using it on my faux veal scallopini with peppers and mushrooms. Molto Bene!

    1. Hi Vincent,
      I’m glad to hear this! We enjoy this seasoning on so many things too! Your dinner tonight sounds fabulous!!! Thanks!

  17. 5 stars
    This is such a practical and easy recipe. I use this almost daily and frankly don’t know how I managed without it in my kitchen.

    1. I’m so glad to hear that this is helpful to your in your kitchen too, Alice! And love to know that you are enjoying it too! Thanks so much for telling me! xo

  18. How much sea salt would you suggest in place of kosher salt? Im wanting to make this but sea salt is all I have!

    1. Hi Krystine,
      The sea salt will make it taste much saltier than the kosher salt I use in the recipe. I’d really suggest using the kosher salt for the best results so that your blend is not too salty.
      Thanks so much! Enjoy! xo

    Robyn, we absolutely love this seasoning. My husband puts it on everything – meats, vegetables, etc. Sometimes when I’m making something, he will say put some of your special seasoning on it. I tell him it’s called Stone House Seasoning, but he can’t seem to remember this. 🙂 Anyway, I wanted to let you know again how much we appreciate finding this seasoning and how much we use it.

    Who knew this was a thing? I’ve been using a 2:1:1 mix of SP&G as my go-to seasoning for beef (especially steaks, burgers, and smoked brisket) for about 50 years. I’ll use other “flavor enhancers” on pork, poultry, etc., but SP&G are all you ever need to bring out the great taste of beef.

    1. Hi Ka Honu,
      Isn’t that funny that you have been using this seasoning mix this long. I was always using this combination and decided to mix a batch so I could keep it on hand all the time!

  21. Hi Robyn, I was planning on making this tomorrow and I am wondering if you use Morton Kosher Salt or Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt because the measurements would differ between the two? I have them both.

    1. Hi Carol,
      I hope you like this seasoning as much as we do. I use Diamond Crystal Kosher salt for this recipe. Thanks!

  22. Not all Kosher salts are created equal. For instance a measurement of Morton’s salt weights almost twice as much as the same measurement of Diamond’s salt. Meaning Morton’s would taste twice as salty as Diamond’s. What brand of Kosher salt was used to make this seasoning?

    1. I’m so glad you like my Stone House Seasoning, Douglas. We use it on just about everything. Thanks!

    1. Hi Robyn,
      Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I made ribeye steak the other day with an SP&G spice that I bought from the store then I saw this recipe. I cannot wait to try to make it and use it on another ribeye steak again. 😊 Can you share what brand of granulated garlic you used? Thank you.

    2. I use McCormick granulated garlic, Ivy. I keep a large container of this seasoning as well as smaller spice jars all the time. We use this on so many foods. Thanks.

  23. Can’t wait to try this! But I have a question. Your one teaspoon recipe has different ratios than the larger batch recipe. Should the larger batch recipe be 2 TABLESPOONS instead of teaspoons? My blend smells great, but mostly of pepper!

    1. The amounts in the recipe are correct, Maura. You use 2 tablespoons of ground pepper and 2 teaspoons of the granulated garlic. Hope you enjoy!

  24. 5 stars
    Best seasoning ever! It goes great with you anything you put on. Chicken, steak, pork, veggies, eggs, pretty much anything!

    1. Gary, I use Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt which is less coarse than some others I have tried. Their company site describes the texture as “coarse enough to pick up and fragile enough to crush between your fingers for perfect seasoning”.

  25. When making the larger quantity, should the amount of granulated garlic be 2 teaspoons as stated in the recipe above or should it be 2 Tablespoons granulated garlic. The ratio of the smaller serving calls for 50% of the amount of black pepper and granulated garlic of the amount of kosher salt. ( 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper, 1/2 tsp garlic).
    If the ratio is the same for the larger quantity, the granulated garlic should be 2 Tablespoons.

  26. 5 stars
    My mixture of spices do not look like your spice jar. Mine looks like lots of pepper with a little garlic salt. Why does your picture of this mixture of spices look so light?

    1. Kelley, did you add the kosher salt? Make sure you mix the spices well and that you have the correct amount of each spice as listed in the recipe.

  27. A tip that may be helpful to readers making this recipe:

    1 teaspoon table salt = 1.5 teaspoons Morton Kosher salt = 2 teaspoons Diamond Kosher salt


  28. Very good. I just used it on skillet rib eye and roasted brussels sprouts.
    Saving the recipe. Knowing me, I would lose the recipe by the time I need a refill.

  29. Do you use 2 Tablespoons of Ground Black Peppercorns that you grind yourself? I prefer Ground Black Pepper from the store. Will I need the same amount?

    1. I use 2 tablespoons after it is ground, Antoinette. Hope you enjoy.

  30. I noticed in the bulk recipe you halfed the garlic powder when subbing for the granulated garlic. If I am making a single serving using garlic powder should I also only add 1/8 tsp instead of the whole 1/4 tsp of granulated garlic?

    1. Ashley, for future reference, I list the ingredients to make one teaspoon of Stone House Seasoning in the post: 1 teaspoon Stone House Seasoning: 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt, 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, 1/4 teaspoon granulated garlic.

  31. My husband loves this recipe. He adds it to everything. It’s a staple in our kitchen.
    Thank you for the recipe!

    1. Thanks, Sylvia. My husband puts it on everything, too. So glad your family likes it as much as mine.

  32. 5 stars
    I have used this recipe for seasoning most of the meals I prepare for the family. It is easy to mix and store, as it is to use. It has replaced the store bought seasoning salts I use to buy.

    1. Thanks so much, Judy. We love this at our house and use it on most meals, too. I’m so thrilled you love it, too.

    1. Bea, kosher salt is the preferred salt in this recipe. When testing, I tested using regular table salt as well as sea salt, but found that I greatly preferred the kosher salt in this recipe. If you substitute with another salt, please be sure to consult salt conversions (I’m not providing them here since I still didn’t like it with them) and realize that it is not a 1 to 1 ratio with kosher salt.

    1. I’m so happy you love this seasoning mix, Jean. I use it every day at my house.

  33. Have tried and enjoyed a couple of your low-sodium seasonings. My husband and I are on a strict no-salt diet. I was curious what the value of the salt content with the kosher salt is, in the Stone House Seasoning. Is it small enough that I shouldn’t even worry about it? I would love to try it, everyone has great reviews on it. Thank You.

    1. Linda, the Diamond Crystal kosher salt has 280 mg sodium in 1/4 teaspoon. A 1/4 teaspoon table salt has 575 mg sodium. Hope this helps.

  34. I want you to know how much I use your recipe, twice weekly. I have also made it for family & friends, (because they are so lazy)! I use it for steak as well as roasted chicken. I’ve made one addition to the original. I strip rosemary from the stem and grind it to to a powder and add it to the mix, and I always double your recipe! Thanks for sharing such a good little secret!

    1. I love that you use Stone House Seasoning so much, Dawn. We use it on just about everything at our house, too. Thanks!

  35. Do you use fine or coarse kosher salt?
    I used to use fine in all of my cooking but I can’t find it in my stores anymore. Looking forward to trying this recipe!
