Can I cook steak IN sauce

I'm not a big fan of grilled steak in general, even if it is a wonderful expensive cut.

My husband bought two Delmonico cut steaks from the farmer's market and is going to marinate his own in just some olive oil and balsamic and then pan sear.

But I made a pesto like salad dressing last night and had more than would fit in the bottle left so asked if I could marinate my own in the pesto sauce (thinner than a paste but not watery like a marinade). So my steak has been marinated in pesto and now I'm not sure how to cook it. The sauce is awesome and I'm not sure, even with 24 hours, if it will have flavored the meat at all. So I'm hoping that I don't have to get ride of the marinade and just pan sear.

Has anyone cooked a steak in sauce like you would poach a plain chicken breast in mushroom sauce? Or will I ruin a good steak?
