Cumin-Coriander Sirloin Steak

Randy Mayor; Melanie J. Clarke
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces)
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.

Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1 pound boneless sirloin steak (about 1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed
