Cumin-Coriander Sirloin Steak

Cumin-Coriander Sirloin Steak Recipe
Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
The combination of cumin, coriander, and ground red pepper create a tasty rub for the beef. Brown sugar aids caramelization. Heating the cast-iron skillet results in a flavorful seared crust on the sirloin steak without having to first brown the meat on the stovetop.
