instructions

 
Sauce
In a food processor, combine the tomatoes, onion, garlic, capers, chili, sugar, paprika and 2 teaspoons salt. Process until slightly chunky. Pour the sauce into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook for 25 minutes until thickened.
Steaks
Place a grill pan over medium-high heat or preheat a gas or charcoal grill. Drizzle the steaks on both sides with olive oil. Season on both sides with the salt and pepper. Grill for 5 to 6 minutes each side for medium-rare. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes.

Slice the steaks across the grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices and serve with the sauce.
