Instructions
  1. Mix all seasonings together in a small bowl.
  2. Pat steaks dry with a paper towel.
  3. Sprinkle seasoning mixture evenly over both sides of each steak, and rub to cover the meat.
  4. Heat olive oil or butter in a skillet (preferable iron skillet) over medium high heat. When the skillet is very hot, add steaks and allow them to cook without moving them for at least 5 minutes on each side. Cook until desired level of doneness. (I like an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.)
Recipe Notes

Try this with chicken or fish too!
You don’t have to measure the spices. Just sprinkle them over the meat and rub to coat if you prefer.
