Directions

  1. Sprinkle the steaks with salt on both sides. Season with the peppercorns and press into steaks so they adhere.
  2. Heat oil in a heavy skillet over high heat until almost smoking. Add steaks and cook about 3 minutes and turn. Cook about 2 minutes, or longer, if you prefer them well done; remove to a platter and keep warm.
  3. Pour off fat from skillet, then add 2 teaspoons butter. Add shallots and cook, stirring, until wilted. Add wine and cook, while stirring, until wine is almost evaporated. Add cream and cook 1 minute. Swirl in remaining butter and pour gravy over steaks.
