  1. Combine wine and sugar in a large pot and bring to boil; lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in cloves, orange zest, nutmeg, and cinnamon and remove pan from heat to cool. Put steaks in a large baking dish and pour marinade over them. Marinate steaks in refrigerator for at least several hours and up to 3 days. 
  2. Take steaks out of the marinade, season with salt and pepper, and cook them in a very hot skillet, about 2 minutes each side for medium rare.

Cook’s Note

You can grill or broil them if you prefer. Slice the meat about 1/4-inch thick and serve.
