I came across a great zucchini main dish recipe on a website( us cuisine)I had typed in a search for zucchihi main dish

4 to 6 small zucchini squash, about 1 1/2 pounds

1 medium sweet onion

2 cloves garlic, smashed and minced

1 teaspoon dried leaf basil

dash Cajun seasoning, optional

1 cup chicken broth

juice of 1 lemon, about 2 to 3 tablespoons

1 can (14.5 ounces) diced tomatoes with juice

salt and pepper, to taste

Cut zucchini into sticks or slices. Quarter and slice the onion. Combine the prepared zucchini and onion, garlic, basil, Cajun seasoning, chicken broth, and lemon juice in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil; lower heat and simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, or until just tender. Add tomatoes and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper, as desired.


Serves 4 to 6.

I substitued a seasoning that is much like the Monterey listed for the Cajun and I added some ground beef.My family loved it.

Morning Kristi ~ I googled McCormicks, got their home pg. Looked all over but with out any luck. Perhaps you can send them an email asking about a substitute. Here is the web pg.

Also, how long have you been looking for it? Sometimes a small store will have some left but be sure of course to check the expiration dates.

Sorry I could not help you a bit better. I would send them a note and see what they have to say. :o) ~ Holly

What are the spices used in McCormick's brown gravy mix?

By Amber from FL

Hey Amber, if no one else is able to offer a better answer, look at the ingredients label on a package of McCormick's Brown Gravy mix to give yourself a clue. Also remember that in the USA ingredients are listed from highest amount (first listed ingredient) to lowest amount (last listed ingredient) on all labels and try to recreate accordingly.


Ignore most of the unpronounceable ingredients (they are usually additives that won't make the gravy any healthier) and experiment with other ingredients, spices, herbs, one at a time. This way you will be able to eliminate or keep that item on your next attempt at recreating a favorite brand name mix.

Some things to try in brown gravy mix (again, experiment with one per cooking session) assuming it is to make 4 -6 servings are:

2 T of Worcestershire sauce

2 t of Old Bay Seasoning

1 T Dijon style mustard

1 t of any dried spice or herb you would add to a beef soup or beef stew

If you are not into experimenting, try some popular recipe sites and type in an internet search for "Brown Gravy Mix Copy Cat Recipes McCormick's" (or a similar combination of words.) You just might find exactly what you are looking for! Good luck, gal!

Judy has a good link but I like to keep several sites that I can look up different seasoning since chicken is one of our favorites.

Take a look at these two links and you might find another favorite mix.

Do you have a clone recipe for McCormick's garlic pepper?

Answer Was this helpful? Yes
January 31, 20170 found this helpful

the listed ingredients are

Garlic, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Red And Green Bell Peppers.

You could just mix those to taste, and then come up with your own measurements, put them in a pepper mill, and voila.

My daughter loves the McCormick Bag and Season Pork Chops Seasoning packets. She loves it on pork chops, country style ribs and pork roasts , but they are very expensive. Does anyone have a recipe similar to these? My dad got her started on these and at $2 a pop when you need one for about every 3 pounds it adds up! Thanks!
