Steak rubbed with salt and cumin


I rubbed the steak with pounded cumin, (I think I have two kinds, the plump palay-like seeds and the thinner ones) and rock salt. I refrigerate it overnight. I like the contrasting sweet and pungent dizzying smell of cumin... I first tasted cumin in the yangrou (lamb) barbecue in Beijing. With this grilled porterhouse steak and with the right red wine, the New Year's Eve or Valentine's Dinner is ready to go!
