If you love fresh, minced garlic, you’ll love Ellbee’s!
A freezer full of beef, a jar of minced garlic & a spice rack…
No, it’s not the beginning of a riddle! These three delicacies are what started Ellbee’s Garlic Seasonings in 1996. Having experienced the richness and flavor that garlic brings to a steak, we mixed minced garlic with a pinch of this and a dash of that, rubbed it on our steaks, and fell in love. While perfecting the Ellbee’s Garlic recipe and exploring more concoctions, we found it enhances just about everything–barbecue, bread, vegetables, soups, chili, appetizers–you name it! Friends and family couldn’t get enough and soon Ellbee’s Garlic Seasoning & Rub was born.
How We’re Different
Early on, everyone that tried Ellbee’s Garlic Seasoning noted there was something different about it–a freshness that nothing else could match. We soon realized pouring the moist, chunky blend over your favorite meat or pasta dishes elevated the food’s flavor beyond what dried spices can do. And the presentation makes your meal more desirable. We still hear it all the time, “There’s something about Ellbee’s that just makes our mouths water!”
Our Ellbee’s Seasoning Family Has Grown
We didn’t think it was possible to have anything taste as good as Ellbee’s Original until we created these seven other distinct flavors. We worked hard to get the flavor profiles just right so you don’t have to! Now you can cook delicious, come-back-for-seconds food with ease. Oh–we can’t forget to mention they’re all natural, all American, with no MSG and gluten-free!
The 7 Sisters…always putting garlic first!
- Zesty–because some like it hot!
- Tuscan–a sun-dried tomato and herb blend; wonderful flavors for Mediterranean dishes.
- Lemon Zest–just the right mix of garlic, citrus, and herbs for chicken, fish or any dish.
- Sweet & Smokey–the perfect ratio of brown sugar and smoked paprika makes pork chops and ribs on the grill finger-licking-good.
- Chili Lime–flavor galore without the heat.
- Asian Zing–fresh ginger with a hint of lemongrass infuses meats, fish, stir-fry and seafood with flavors that’ll knock your socks off.
- Chipotle Herb–a unique, fiery heat from chipotle peppers and a great herb blend.
Try all eight and find out how easy it is to turn ordinary dishes into gourmet meals! Looking for a bridal gift or something for a new mom? Ellbee’s takes the guess-work out of making delicious meals and frees up a ton of time.
What’s In a Name?
We are often asked how we got the name Ellbee’s. After much praying about our potential business, whether we should move forward with it and what it should be called, Ellbee’s was the name our Lord gave us. “Ell” is for (L)inda, and “bee” is for (B)rent. Ellbee’s Garlic Seasonings…The Best Buzz Your Food Has Ever Had! How creative and fun for us! With prayers answered, away we went to create the small-town, all-American business we’ve been so blessed to call ours. Linda Styer, a former hair stylist now turned Spice Gal, and Brent Styer, a former painter now Ellbee’s Production Manager, are the proud purveyors of Ellbee’s Garlic Seasoning & Rubs located in Wentzville, Missouri.
