- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper, divided
- 1 cup diced plum tomatoes

Whisk together vinegar and oil in medium glass bowl. Place steak in shallow bowl; spread with garlic. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper over steak. Spoon 2 tablespoons vinegar mixture over top of steak. Marinate in refrigerator at least 20 minutes or up to 2 hours.
