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

I came across this forum looking for McCormick Top Chop seasoning. I know it was discontinued back in '92 (showing my age ;-D). If anyone could help me with it I would appreciate it.


My mother used to use it and I can remember her complaining about it being discontinued back then LOL. Thanks in advance everyone!

Here is the contact page for McCormick. They may be able to help you. They probably won't give you the recipe, but they may tell you some of the ingredients in it and you can experiment on your own.

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!

Looks like Judy found your recipe.

Thank you for sharing this seasoning. It is relatively new and not a lot of bottles being on sale. Someone is even selling them on eBay 2 for $14!

They do have packets for $1 at Walmart, Amazon.

I believe you are asking about the seasoning mix and not the marinade. There does not appear to be a copy-cat recipe for this blend and since it is no longer being made it will continue to climb in price until all sites have sold out.

Step 1
The least expensive that I found was about $14 for 2 small containers plus $8 shipping! Some of the Sam's clubs may have it but if so, not for long. Amazon no longer has any for sale.

Step 2
You may have to check the ingredients on your container and experiment (start with a basic Brazilian seasoning recipe) and add small amounts of the other listed ingredients until you find a taste that suits you.

The only ingredients I found for McCormick's had several "out of the ordinary" spices.
Sea salt, spices (including black pepper, paprika, jalapeno pepper, parsley), garlic, onion, red and green pepper & natural flavor (?)
Maybe these are the ingredients on your container. Good luck and maybe you can post a "copycat" recipe sometime in the future.

Too bad this has been discontinued but I feel sure they will have something similar soon. Somehow copycat recipes are not always the same and need to be adjusted/changed to create what everyone feels tastes like the "original".

Has anyone duplicated this recipe? McCormick's maple multigrain seasoning is a wonderful seasoning for salmon or chicken. It used to be carried at Sam's Club and I more recently found online at, but ordered their last odd lot.

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?


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!
