1 . Stage

Combine basil, olive oil, Parmesan cheese, garlic, and pine nuts in a food processor and puree until smooth. Season with salt and pepper.

2 . Stage

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (95 degrees C).

Rub salt over steaks. Spread some pesto evenly on both steaks and place into an oven-safe glass dish. Pour oil into the dish, ensuring there is enough oil to submerge the steaks.

Cook steaks in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 135 degrees F (57 degrees C). Drain steaks and blot off excess oil.
