Nigella seeds, which come from the flowering Nigella sativa plant, have an oniony flavor and are popular in Middle Eastern and Indian cooking. Also known as black cumin or black onion seeds, they have been used in traditional medicine and in recent years have been studied by scientists for their powerful anti-inflammatory benefits.
Prepare a medium-hot fire on one side of a grill. Set the steak on the grill directly over the heat and cook, turning once, until starting to brown, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer to indirect heat, close the grill, and cook without turning until lightly charred and cooked to the desired doneness, 5 to 10 minutes longer for top sirloins and 5 to 15 minutes longer for rib-eye and filet mignons.
