    Spray 12- to 13-inch round grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Remove beef from marinade, and place in pan; discard any remaining marinade. Cook 10 to 20 minutes, turning once, until instant-read thermometre inserted in thickest part of steak reads 135°F/60°C (for medium). Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with foil, and let stand 5 minutes.
