DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400. To prepare steak, heat 3 tbsp olive oil in a large heavy bottomed pan.
  • Season steaks well with coarse salt and pepper. When oil is nearly smoking, add steaks and 2 tbsp butter; sear both sides of steak until well coloured. (Depending on size of steak, this may have to be done in two batches.).
  • Finish cooking in oven for desired doneness, about 5 minutes for medium rare. Remove from heat, transfer to cutting board and let rest, covered, for at least 10 minutes.
  • In same pan, add 1 tbsp oil and sweat shallot until softened and lightly coloured. Add port to deglaze and bring to simmer, reducing slightly.
  • Add beef stock and simmer; reduce volume by half. Remove from heat and swirl in 2 tbsp butter. Season sauce to taste with salt and pepper.
