  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 green onion, finely chopped
  • 2 tsp rosemary leaves

    Place steaks in a large bowl. Season with salt and pepper, add half of the garlic and mix well so that the seasoning penetrates the meat. Stand in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours.

    Heat oil in a frying pan and brown steaks on both sides. Place them on a plate. Deglaze pan with vinegar. Stir in onion, green onion, rosemary and remaining garlic and cook gently, stirring constantly, for 1-2 minutes. Top steaks with sauce. Serve hot.
