"To eat steak rare... represents both a nature and a morality."
-Roland Barthes, Philosopher
Simple, simple, simple. This great steak dish takes all of about 20 or 25 minutes to make and is so satisfying. If you want it a bit spicier, you can add more (or less) cayenne pepper, but your favorite hot sauce can give it an altogether different flavor.
Cumin is a thin spindle shaped seed that resembles a caraway seed. It has been used as a spice for millennia. When the spice is ground, it has a slightly hot, piquant flavor that is used in Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, Spanish and Asian cuisines. It was imported to the Americas and is a staple in Mexican and South American recipes.
A little goes a long way and too much can quickly overpower a dish. As with any spice, buying whole seeds and grinding them results in a much fresher flavor.
