Directions:
Saute bread rounds in one tablespoon of butter until lightly golden brown. Saute mushrooms in 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter and 1 tablespoon of oil for 4 minutes, then add shallots and saute for 1 minute more. Dry steaks with a towel.

Saute steaks in 1-1/2 tablespoons of the butter and 1 tablespoon of the oil for 2-5 minutes on each side, to taste. Remove steaks from pan and hold on a warm platter. Discard bacon wrap if you wish.

Pour the fat out of the pan. Add bouillon and tomato paste and cook over high heat to boil down rapidly to 2-3 tablespoons liquid, stirring to scrape up cooking juices. Add Madeira or Marsala and cornstarch and continue to cook over high heat to boil down rapidly for 1 minute. Add mushrooms and cook over low heat for 1 minutes.

Place steaks on bread rounds. Pour sauce over steaks. Sprinkle parsley over sauce.
