• 1 1-inch thick bone-in rib eye
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp hot paprika
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F.
  2. Mix the spices together with sugar; sprinkle the steak with the spice mixture and rub it into the steak.
  3. Drizzle the steak with olive oil and rub to coat evenly.
  4. Put the steak in a hot oven-safe nonstick skillet over medium high heat, and place another smaller skillet on top of the steak; apply pressure for about 30 seconds for a good sear and then remove the top skillet.
  5. Turn the steak over and transfer the skillet to the oven.
  6. Roast the steak 8 minutes for medium.
  7. Transfer the steak to a cutting board and let it rest for 10 minutes before slicing.
