1. Season steaks all over, then sprinkle over combined spices on both sides and massage into meat. Rub all over with oil. Bring to room temperature.
2. Meanwhile, to make mayonnaise, process egg yolks, lemon juice and a pinch of salt in a food processor until well combined. Add garlic and tarragon and process to combine. With the motor running, gradually add oil, drop by drop at first, then in a thin, steady stream until thick and emulsified. Season and refrigerate until needed.
