Spray lightly with olive oil spray. Bake in oven for 10 minutes. Add reserved tomato tops to tray. Bake for 5 minutes or until tomatoes are tender but still hold their shape.
  4. Meanwhile, brush steaks with 1 tablespoon oil and season. Heat a char-grill or barbecue over medium-high heat. Cook steaks for 3 to 4 minutes each side or until cooked to your liking. Set aside on a plate loosely covered with foil to rest for 5 minutes.
