How to drill steel plate, need suggestions

I want to mount the bolt shown into the steel plate size shown with a nut on the other side (I think it's 3/16 inch thick plate), need to make holes into the steel plate. Hole diameter is larger than half inch, probably 5/8 inch. Steel plate is not hardened to my knowledge, that scrap was cut yesterday with a sawzall and metal blade. Can you suggest the best method to create the holes?

Any help would be appreciated.
