Savory Pot Roast Seasoning Recipe

Homemade pot roast seasoning that is savory and the best beef dry rub recipe you’ll ever use. Bake in the oven, in the air fryer or smoke on the grill after coating the outside well with this.

Beef Rub

We have used this dry rub roast seasoning for all different cuts. From a chuck roast to bottom round roast it adds a ton of flavor so you don’t need any gravy or sauce when it is served at all. Creates a thick crust baked on to your protein and makes it go from good to WOW. (affiliate links present)

We have used this on a sirloin tip roast which was amazing, tri tip, top round, chuck roast in oven and even steaks become out of this world delicious. There aren’t hard to find items in this, I don’t do that. Instead we start with salt and pepper, add garlic which we love, and a dash of steak seasoning and cumin worked quite well too.

I don’t like really really spicy and peppery but I did add a pinch. If you don’t have or want to buy the McCormick blend I used you could leave that out but it gives this just a bit more of a punch. I will say that I’m not a plain beef or steak kinda’ gal. I need LOTS of flavor. Even with our Slow Cooker Pot Roast Red Wine recipe I will sprinkle some of this in.

We started with a pretty simple steak dry rub which we still use today. That one does have a bit of sweetness to it though with brown sugar which we left out this go around. I mean I do like the combo of the two but I find that longer times in the oven sometimes makes the sugar melt, fall off and isn’t quite as successful.

  • 3 tbsp garlic powder or half garlic and half onion powder
  • Kosher salt or sea salt and pepper
  • Cumin
  • Smoked paprika
  • 3/4 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 tsp chili powder

Try it just this way first. We have adjusted it a few times until we came to these measurements which we found to be perfect. If you want a bit more heat let’s say you could add red pepper flakes or dry Sriracha with our Pot Roast Chicken version. Make note of it on your printable recipe below for the next time.

If you love this rub for beef as much as we have to put it on Cross Rib Roast, shoulder, arm roast and all the things, you can make it in bulk. This will save you time the next go arounds so there is no measuring. Then you just spoon all over, pat on, allow the excess to fall off and cook.

Let’s talk a bit about the cut of beef you might want to try with this. Like I said, there are many and could be used to toss even steak bites in. Once you have all the herbs and spices out you could choose from one of the following;

  • Tenderloin roast will be the most tender of them all
  • Tri-Tip has a great flavor to it
  • Top sirloin petite roast is different than the thinner sliced steak varieties
  • Eye of round roast isnt as easy to find but has a great texture and works well with this spice blend.
  • Our top round roast recipe featured here and bottom round roast are great choices for the dutch oven
  • Ribeye roast and the list goes on…….

Dry Rub Pot Roast

Now you will need a fresh or defrosted one of these. You won’t be able to immediately coat a frozen roast because well it won’t stick. BUT if you do want to do this in your slow cooker you can just sprinkle some on halfway thru. That way it will be softer, wetter, and it won’t be as thick but still will add plenty of flavor.

When it comes to an Instant Pot roast that is thawed it should stay on quite nicely. You typically set the meat on a trivet so it isn’t sitting in the liquid which may make it sluff off. You can jump to recipe or take a peek at this quick rundown;

  • Mix all seasonings together in a bowl.
    • if you make in bulk store in a sealed container and just take out 1 tbsp at a time to coat the meat.
    • do not put back any that falls off when lifted up before baking
  • Blot your roast with a paper towel.
  • Then coat the roast with dry rub ensuring as much sticks on to the top, bottom and sides as possible.

You can use this really on all different cuts of meat. I have coated chuck roast, eye of round and Bottom Round Roast, the list goes on and on…..

Best Pot Roast Seasoning

Cook, grill or bake as you wish. It is best to start off with a higher temperature for just a bit so it browns and bakes on and then get middle to temp at a lower temp. We bake for 15 at 450, then for 1 hour at 350 until center reaches 135 F.
