2 – Rub the steak pieces with 1 tablespoon olive oil and a teaspoon of salt and pepper. Allow to rest while you prepare the Blistered Tomatoes.
3 – For the tomatoes, heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a pan over medium high heat, and add the halved tomatoes spreading them evenly over the pan. . Allow them to cook for about 7 minutes.
4 – Add the herbs and garlic and stir to incorporate.
5 – Reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 5 minutes.
6 – Remove the tomatoes form the heat while you prepare the steaks.
7 – Over a high heat, 500* grill – grill the prepped steaks for one and a half minutes on each side (smaller half of steak for just a minute on each side.
8 – Remove form the grill, cover and rest while finishing the tomatoes.
9 – Add the anchovies, breaking up with a spoon and add the capers and wine. Stir to incorporate and continue to cook until wine is reduced to half.
10 – Taste and season with salt & pepper and fresh squeeze of lemon before serving.
11 – Carve the steak into desired pieces and serve with Blistered Tomato Sauce and Risotto. So good!
