The seasonings for most steaks are as variable as the recipes themselves; even \Japanese teppanyaki steak has its unique flavor!

Steak seasoning usually involves cornstarch, sugar, garlic powder, chili powder, salt, pepper, and other herbs and additives, but they’re all designed to augment the taste of the steak more than the usually burnt flavor of the meat.

But for this article, I’ll only talk about the most common seasoning for steaks, as the seasonings for teppanyaki steak were already discussed above.

Now, teppanyaki doesn’t usually require seasoning, but rather a mild sauce is added after the cooking. But if you like your steak seasoned, this recipe will complement any sauce, OR make you forget all about it!

Sometimes, teppanyaki steak seasonings add soy sauce and paprika to the mix to give it an exotic taste.

But if you think you can come up with an amazing seasoning mix yourself, then by all means try it! We need new and non-traditional flavors to introduce to people.

Experimenting with a few herbs, vegetables, chili powders, peppers, and other liquid extracts from fruit trees that’d have a great taste after thoroughly mixing them in the saucepan can make a big difference!
