Sicilian Steak

This recipe comes from the super fabulous Teresa Giudice's new book "Skinny Italian"
This was REALLY good.

Sicilian Steak

2 (1lb each) shell steaks (also known as strip steak) 1" thick
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/3 dried bread crumbs
2 tablespoons freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

1. Trim excess fat from the steaks. combine oil and garlic and marinate steaks on each side for 15 min each side.
2. Mix bread crumbs, cheese, oregano, salt and pepper together and put in shallow bowl. remove steaks from oil, letting the oil cling, and dip each steak into the bread crumb mixture, patting the bread crumbs to make sure they stick. let stand for 10 minutes to set the crumbs.
3. Position a broiler rack 6 to 8 inches from the source of heat and preheat the broiler. (if the crust starts to burn move rack down)
4. Place steak on the rack and broil until the crust is lightly browned, and flip and do the same for the other side. cook until done to your liking.
transfer to a platter and let stand for 3 minutes, cut across the grain into 1/2 inch thick slices and serve.
