Add eggplant and cook, stirring, for 2 to 3 minutes or until soft. Add capsicum and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes. Add vinegar, sugar, capers and olives. Reduce heat to medium. Simmer for 6 to 8 minutes or until mixture is thick. Transfer to a bowl. Stir in parsley. Season with salt and pepper.

Spray a cold barbecue plate or grill with oil. Preheat on medium- high heat. Cook steaks for 2 to 3 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate. Cover. Stand for 3 minutes. Serve steaks with warm caponata and crusty bread rolls.
