  • 1-1/2 tablespoons butter

  • 4 pieces white bread, rectangles

  • 1/2 tablespoon oil

  • 4 steak fillets

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons minced green onions

  • 1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced

  • 1/3 cup Madeira wine


1.  Heat butter in frying pan and saute bread in clear melted butter.  Remove from pan.
2.  Add oil to butter and heat until butter foam has almost subsided.  Dry steaks on paper towels, then saute for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.  Meat is medium rare as soon as a little pearling of juice appears on top, and meat feels slightly springy when pressed.
3.  Place steaks on toasted rectangles and arrange on a hot platter.  Season with salt and pepper.
4.  Pour fat out of pan, add green onions, mushrooms and wine.  Boil down rapidly, scraping meat juices, then pour over steaks and serve.
