1 Heat a frying pan. Add 2tsp olive oil and garlic. Add tomatoes, sugar and half the basil. Season with salt and ground black pepper and fry for 5 mins until tomatoes are softened and breaking down.

2 Meanwhile, heat a griddle pan. Oil the steak on both sides and season generously.  Fry for 2-4 mins each side – this will give you a medium rare  steak. If you prefer yours well done, cook for a few extra mins each side. Put on to plates and rest for 5 mins.

3 Add balsamic vinegar to tomato sauce, with rest of basil and any steak juices.

4 Serve the steaks with sauce on the side, a green salad and crusty bread, if you like.
