In a mortar, pound the garlic and rosemary toa paste. Stir in the olive oil and season with pepper and a little salt. Place steaks in a shallow baking dish; rub both sides with salt and pepper and coat with the olive-oil mixture. Cover with plastic wrap; marinate at least 30 minutes at room temperature or up to 1 day in the refrigerator, turning once or twice.
If steaks are refrigerated, let them come to room temperature up to 2 hours before cooking. Prepare outdoor grill or place broiler rack 4 to 6 inches from heat source and preheat broiler.
Remove steaks from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Grill or broil a few minutes on each side, until done to taste(about 4 minutes on each side for medium rare). Place on warmed serving platter and squeeze lemon over each steak. Makes 2 to 4 servings.
