1.  Preheat grill to medium-high heat.

2.  Season the steaks with salt and pepper and drizzle with the 3 tablespoons of olive oil.

3.  Grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

4.  Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a heavy large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.

5.  Season with salt. Add the garlic and oregano and saute until fragrant, about 30 seconds.

6.  Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in the wine.

7.  Simmer until the sauce reduces by half, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.

8.  Remove the skillet from the heat. Strain the sauce into a small bowl, pressing on the solids to extract as much liquid as possible.

9.  Discard the solids in the strainer and return the sauce to the saucepan and bring back to a slow simmer.

10.  Cut the remaining 4 tablespoons of butter into small 1/2-inch chunks and whisk in the sauce a little at a time.

11.  Season the sauce, to taste, with salt and pepper.
