Does anyone have a copycat recipe for McCormick thick and zesty spaghetti seasoning? If not, can someone come up with a recipe similar to it?

Well - good news McCormick's Thick & Zesty Spaghetti Sauce Mix has not been discontinued and should be back on grocery store shelves soon. McCormick has been having problems getting some of their ingredients from suppliers due to the COVID-19 virus but state they will be making this again soon.
Usually it is best to check online to see when it is available again.
I hope no wishes to pay the price some sellers are asking right now: (Affiliate Link)

Here are a couple of recipes that I have used in the past but everyone has different 'tastes' when it comes to spaghetti sauce.

I was using McCormick Spaghetti mix and could no longer find it in the store so my daughter got on line and ordered it for me. They sent a box of Lawry's instead of McCormick. My daughter called and inquired about it. They refunded the money and told us to keep the sauce. I found out that McCormick has bought out Lawry's. The sauce is just as good as McCormick and may be even a little better and we love it. I will definitely be ordering more when we finish up this box of 12

Does anyone have a homemade mix recipe for McCormick's Bag 'n Season cooking bag for pork chops?


January 22, 20210 found this helpful
Best Answer

If anyone has developed a copycat recipe I cannot find it.
There are plenty of pork chop recipes but most recommend using McCormick's which it appears has been discontinued but maybe not as it is not on their discontinued list and some Amazon sellers are selling these with an April delivery date. (Affiliate Link)
Some sellers on eBay have some for sale at about $16 - $20 for 3 packs. Sad..

McCormick's has been having problems acquiring ingredients for some of their other products so this may just be another one and it may be back on the market in a few weeks or so.

Recipes are scarce for just this way of cooking pork chops but it appears Kroger has a similar bag but may not be anything like McCormick's. I'm not sure you can even find this.
There is also a Sauer's similar but no idea of ingredients.

I did find this one recipe but never tried it:
You may just have to find a seasoning mix/rub that you like and buy some of the oven bags and try creating a recipe that suits you and your family.
I feel sure other members will be along soon with lots of suggestions.

It is very hard to find out all the ingredients that are in the package. I know for sure that they have to list them on the package if they are selling it. I would read what is on the package and then start off with adding the ingredients to a bowl to make your own. This is about the only way to find out what is in the package. You can adjust the spices until you get what you like.

Hi, does anyone have a recipe (clone) list for McCormick Beef Stroganoff Mix and Lawry's Fajita mix ?

It is so frustrating when they just stop making things.


October 12, 20200 found this helpful
Best Answer

I have tried this recipe in the past and it comes the closest to the Beef Stroganoff seasoning from McCormick. it is a great recipe and simple to make. This one might work for you if you want to make it and try it.

As for your Fajita mixes, I have used this mix for a very long time and it is delicious. This one is simple to make and you can store it in a bottle and use as much or as little as you like. You can try this one

Just keep in mind a lot of recipes like this are to your liking and taste. I find out that they are actually better than the real deal and you can spice them up a bit if you like them a bit more spicy.

McCormick Beef Stroganoff Mix and Lawry's Fajita mix have not been discontinued but there is a shortage of both of these spices according to McCormick. McCormick Beef Stroganoff Slow Cooker Mix has been discontinued.

Message from McCormick:
"We still make our Beef Stroganoff Seasoning Mix. We are temporarily out of stock on some of our products due to the heavy demand on our packaging supply. We are working hard to get these products back on shelves. ~ Erica
McCormick Spice
Manufacturer · September 17, 2020"

Lawry's Fajita mix can still be found online: (Affiliate Link) (Affiliate Link)

There are some very good recipes for both mixes but most will need to be changed in some way to suit your own personal taste.

I have a friend who owns a small restaurant and since we are in Florida she has remained open (In some capacity) for most of this difficult time and she says it is difficult to find any of these mixes not only McCormick but all brands.

Does anyone have a homemade recipe for the now discontinued McCormick's Slow Cooker Chicken Noodle Soup Mix?

Best Answer

Everybody ask this question and wants a copycat recipe for McCormick's seasonings. Unfortunately there aren't any available. On the package they list the ingredients but they do not say how much they add of each sprice. I know a few people who have just made their own from the ingredients on the package. it is a trial and error but in the end you can come close to copying this seasoning mix.

I'm afraid that you will find very few true copy-cat recipes for any of McCormick's mixes.
It just so happens that my local Walmart (Florida) has a few packets of this particular item in stock but I'm sure they will not last very long (in store only - cannot be ordered) but you might try online at some of your local stores to see if they have any left.

You might want to try another mix and maybe check ingredients against McCormicks to see what may be different/missing.

They probably have this brand at your local stores.

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


March 29, 20110 found this helpful
Best Answer

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!
