In a heatproof bowl, cover the anchos with boiling water and let stand for 15 minutes. Drain the chiles and take off the stems and seeds and coarsely chop. In a food processor, pulse the chiles and garlic a few times. Add the toasted almonds, almond butter, vinegar and 1/4 cup warm water. Process until it is a coarse paste, stream in olive oil and add more hot water until desired consistency.
Preheat the broiler or a grill. Sprinkle steaks generously with cumin and black pepper. Grill or broil for about 3 minutes per side. Let the steak rest and then thin slice across the grain serve with sauce.
Use any leftover sauce as a dip for veggies, chicken or whatever you like.
