Place the steak in an electric vacuum marinator and pour the marinade over the meat. Create a vacuum seal and marinate on the tumble setting for 20 minutes according to the manufacturers instructions. When the marinator stops, reset it for 20 minutes more.
Preheat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinator and place it on the grill pan. Cook, turning once, 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or until done to your liking.
Transfer the steak to a cutting board, cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steak into thin slices and arrange on a warmed platter. Serve with baked beans. Serves 6 to 8.
