  1. Heat a heavy-based frying pan over a high heat, then add the olive oil and garlic. Season the meat; then, two at a time, quickly brown the steaks on both sides.

  2. Put all 4 steaks in the pan, add the tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, then turn down the heat. Sprinkle the oregano over the meat and tomatoes, partially cover the pan, then simmer gently for 10 mins.

  3. Lift the tender pieces of meat from the pan, cover with foil, then set aside. Increase the heat, then simmer the tomato sauce for about 10 mins, until it has reduced by half. Spoon the sauce over the steak and serve with new potatoes and a handful of rocket.
