A mix of spices -- coriander, cumin, caraway, cinnamon, and turmeric -- complements the caramelized crust that forms from either pan-searing, grilling, or broiling the versatile T-bone steak. Oven directions are given but better on the BBQ or pan grilled
1Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Fit a wire rack over a baking pan and set aside.
Rub steaks with olive oil, season with salt, and set aside
2Coarsely grind the coriander, cumin, caraway, and rosemary using a mortar and pestle or an electric grinder.
Transfer ground spices to a bowl and mix in the black pepper, cinnamon, and turmeric.
3Rub each steak with 1 tablespoon of spice mixture, making sure to cover both sides.
Let the steaks sit at room temperature for 20 minutes.
4Heat a large skillet over high heat until very hot.
Add the canola oil and sear the steaks until a brown crust forms.
Turn and repeat on the other side.
5Transfer the steaks to a wire rack set over the prepared baking pan, place in oven, and cook to desired degree of doneness -- about 9 minutes for rare, 11 for medium rare, 15 for medium, and 18 for well done.
