Prepare barbecue at a medium-high heat. Place steaks on grill and flavor all sides with pepper. Grill steaks nearly 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Thinly slice steaks diagonally across grain. Put slices on platter and garnish with thyme and rosemary sprigs. Finally, we recommend using a heavy frying pan or griddle rather than an electric grill as you can control the temperature more easily.
