In a small dish, combine the salt, pepper, and curry. Coat each side of the steak with about 1/2 of the olive oil, and then generously rub with the spices, coating each inch.
Heat the remaining olive oil in an oven safe sauce pan over medium to high heat. Once hot, sear each side of the steaks for approximately 1 minute and 30 seconds, until a crust begins to form. The transfer pan to the oven and set time for 3 minutes. After three minutes, flip the steaks and cook for another three minutes. This is so they cook evenly on both sides.
For my thinner steaks, this turned out a perfect medium rare. Adjust the cooking times to fit your steak size and preference. I served with mashed sweet potatoes for a healthier version of "steak and potatoes".
