My Mom always fully seasoned her roast meats before she seared them. Of course I did it the same way when I first got married. I nearly choked to death from the dusty effect that seems to rise up from the pan. I put only a bit of salt on the meat before searing to give it that nice crust, but wait until I'm ready to put the pan in the oven or the lid on the dutch oven before adding the rest of my seasonings.

I seared in a dry pan today....worked well! I also season before I sear.
