Bistecca alla Fiorentina

4-1" think T-bone steaks. You can use something else but you’d have to call the dish something else.
3/4 cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 Tbsp. freshly chopped Italian parsley
2 finely chopped garlic cloves
1 healthy pinch of dried oregano
Sea salt

Steak Florentine. Sounds like a lot of people have this (and pasta) their last night in Italy because they're jonesin' for some 'American' food yet want to have something Italian.

In a large, shallow baking dish, marinate the steaks in other ingredients for 4-6 hours in the refrigerator, turning from time to time. Preheat the broiler on high. Pat the steaks dry with paper towels and place on broiling pan 3-4 inches from broiler. Cook for about 4 minutes on each side or until done to your liking. 4 minutes is usually medium rare. Finish the steaks on a platter by drizzling a little of your best olive oil and sea salt over them.

Serving Suggestions and Tips: Pair this with a tomato, red onion and cucumber salad and a Chianti = dinner!
