DIRECTIONS

  • To prepare tomato sauce place about a tbsp of oil and a crushed clove of garlic in a medium size pot.
  • Let garlic turn slightly golden but remove from pot before it becomes too brown.
  • Add tomatoes with their liquid and simmer until there is little to no more liquid on top of the sauce.
  • Set aside.
  • Season steaks on both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat remaining oil in a large skillet (it should be able to hold both steaks without overcrowding) over medium-high heat until hot.
  • Add garlic and saute for 1 minute then add steaks.
  • Quickly brown 1 minute on both sides then transfer to a plate.
  • Add the red pepper flakes and oregano to the pan the steaks were cooked in, then add the wine and cook stirring until the liquid is slightly reduced.
  • Add tomato sauce, stir then return steak to pan.
  • Reduce heat to medium and cook 6-8 minutes turning once (or to your desired doneness).
  • Put steak on a serving dish and pour sauce over top.
