Which kind of oil is best to fry steak in a cast-iron skillet with?? Olive, Canola, almond ?? I'm looking for the best taste profile also. Thanks.


Taste is a matter of opinion; best requires some sort of criteria with which to evaluate. See related:

Depending on the steak, your preferences,and the cooking method, either canola or olive might be the winner from the selection you have enumerated; almond oil is fairly exotic, at least in the US, and would not normally be used for steak cookery.
