  • Adjust the spice levels: You can use more or less crushed red pepper to adjust the spice level of your seasoning for beef.
  • Adjust the sweetness: Use more or less brown sugar to make the steak seasoning a little sweeter or less sweet if you prefer.
  • Add more garlic: If you really love garlic (I know I do!), adjust to use more garlic powder for an extra garlicky flavor.
