Technically, yes, you *can*, but, you shouldn't. Here's why: Although it is oil-based, there is a lot of stuff in there that is not oil, and a lot of it is not friendly to heat. Sugars will burn, as will garlic, spices, and herbs. Vinegar or other water-based flavorings in the marinade will boil off and evaporate, concentrating the already burned and extremely un-tasty flavors you have going. Plus, there's no need to. Cooking tightens proteins, so, no additional flavor is going to be imparted to the food. So, in conclusion, it's not tasty and it's unnecessary. If you want to use a marinade as a sauce, and get the flavor of the marinade on after it's cooked, then reserve some of the marinade BEFORE it hits the food. Some people will tell you to boil it after you take the meat, etc. out of the marinade to use as a sauce, but, it can't get hotter than boiling temperature, and some bacteria can survive 212 degrees. So, I think it's better safe than sorry. Nut, it's your choice.

Do you cook the steak in a marinade?

No, the idea of a marinade is to infuse the meat with flavor. If you then cook it in the marinade, it will be too strong a taste. Plus, it'll boil, making it pretty tough. The exception would be braising, which is slow-cooking at a low temperature in either wine, stock, tomato sauce, or combinations of them, with some chopped aromatic vegetables and herbs. In that case, you simply brown the meat (some don't) and put into the liquid to cook. Technically, this is cooking it in a marinade.
