1.Preheat oven to moderate, 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line an oven tray with baking paper.
2.Heat butter and oil together in a large frying pan on high. Cook steaks 1-2 minutes each side, to seal and brown well. Transfer to tray and season to taste. Bake 8- 10 minutes, until cooked to taste. Rest, covered loosely with foil, 5 minutes.
3.Meanwhile, melt extra butter in same pan on medium. Saute eschalots, garlic and herbs 2-3 minutes, or until tender. Increase heat to high and add mushrooms. Cook 4-5 minutes, until golden.
4.Add wine to pan to deglaze. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2-3 minutes, until reduced by half. Stir in stock and simmer 2 minutes.
5.Mix in cream. Season to taste. Serve steaks with sauce. Accompany with baby spinach leaves and chips.

Cooking time will vary depending on the thickness of your steaks. Always use good-quality wine, medium to dry, when cooking savoury dishes. Poor-quality wine could affect the flavour of the dish.
