Follow these cooking methods/directions:

  1. Combine garlic, Worcestershire sauce and tomato paste in a sealable freezer bag. Pierce steaks all over and add to bag, massaging marinade into meat; seal and refrigerate for at least 8 to 12 hours.

  2. Discard marinade from meat; pat steaks dry with paper towel. Season all over with salt and pepper to your taste.

  3. Grill steaks in a closed preheated barbecue over medium-high heat (400°F/200°C) for 6 to 8 minutes for ½ inch (1 cm) thick steaks, turning twice or more, or until a digital instant-read thermometer inserted sideways into centre of steak reads 145°F (63°C) for medium-rare doneness at the least. Transfer steaks to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes.

  4. Stir-fried Vegetables: Meanwhile, heat vegetable and sesame oils over high heat in a large skillet or wok. Stir-fry garlic, red and green peppers and onion for 2 to 3 minutes or until tender-crisp. Add Worcestershire sauce and stir-fry for 30 to 60 seconds or until vegetables are coated. Season to taste with salt.

  5. Slice steaks thinly across the grain at a 45-degree angle. Serve with stir-fried vegetables and garnish with green onions.
