Take a look at the recipe on the above link for some wonderful ideas. Do you have an ovenproof skillet? That would work, and you could simply cover the top with foil.

If you have the afore-mentioned ovenproof skillet, here's a foolproof method that only takes about 10 minutes prep time:
Heat the pan with some olive oil and/or butter.
Coat the steak in well-seasoned flour (salt, pepper, Paprika). Sear it.
Remove it from the pan. quickly saute some sliced onions. Put the steak back in the pan.
Add a little salt, some black pepper, some garlic if you like, and some herbs - I like fresh Rosemary, fresh or dried Thyme, and maybe a bay leaf.
Add equal parts orange juice, beef stock, and red wine - enough to come about halfway up the steak.
Cover it as tightly as you can and put into a preheated 300• oven.
Cook for about 3 hours, or until fork tender.
Depending on how tightly sealed the lid is, you may need to reduce the sauce - just fish the steak out and put it on a cutting board (tent w/foil) and boil the sauce down on the stove. Fish out the bay leaf, rosemary and thyme stems before serving.

if you don't have an oven-proof skillet, you could to this on the stove - use a flame-tamer (or make one out of a ring of aluminum foil) and make sure the liquid is only barely simmering.
