1 oz. butter, melted
1 tablespoon soy sauce

Preheat the grill to high and line the grill pan with aluminium foil.
In a small mixing bowl, combine the salt, peppercorns, garlic, turmeric, card-amom, cayenne and cumin. Using a small wooden spoon, stir in the butter and soy sauce, stirring until the mixture is smooth.
Place the steaks on the rack in the grill pan and, using a pastry brush, brush the upper sides of the steaks with half of the spice mixture.
Place the steaks under the grill and grill for 2 minutes. Turn the steaks over and brush them with the remaining spice mixture. Grill for a further 2 minutes.
Reduce the heat to low and grill the steaks for a further 2 minutes on each side. This will produce rare steaks. Double the cooking times for well-done steaks.
