In a medium sauce pan, combine Pomegranate Glaze ingredients and cook over medium heat. Reduce mixture by 30 percent. Strain and cool the mixture; set aside.
Toast the caraway seeds, coriander seeds, cumin and garlic powder in a dry pan until fragrant. Add remaining Harissa Steak Sauce ingredients, except the chives, and bring to a simmer. Simmer for 10 minutes, remove from heat and let cool. Stir chives into finished sauce.
Preheat the grill using Kingsford charcoal, until briquets are consistently ashed over.
Season the steak liberally with salt and pepper.
Grill the steaks over a medium high fire until lightly charred on one side, approximately 4 minutes. Flip the steak and baste with the Pomegranate Glaze. After an additional 2 minutes of cooking, baste the steak again.
Remove the steak from the grill and allow to rest for 6 minutes.
Baste the steak again after resting and serve with a side of the Harissa Steak Sauce.
