"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Ingredients:  
2 (6-ounce) beef fillets, cut from the tenderloin
salt and pepper
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 tbsps butter
1 tbsp minced shallot or onion
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1 tsp Worcesterchire sauce, or to taste
cup heavy cream or half-and-half
lemon juice, to taste (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Flatten fillets a bit with the palm of your hand, the back of a skillet or a small mallet; they should be about 1 inch thick. Sprinkle with salt and a lot of pepper. In small skillet, preferably one that is just large enough to hold the fillets, combine oil and tablespoon of butter over medium-high heat. When butter foam melts, sear steaks on both sides, just until browned, no more than 2 minutes per side. Remove to platter.

Wipe pan clean with towel; add remaining butter over medium heat, with shallot or onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and cream. Add some salt and a fair amount of pepper. Stir once or twice, then taste and adjust seasoning.

Keep mixture at a steady simmer, return meat and accumulated juices to pan. Cook, turning two or three times, until meat is done to your liking (125 degrees internal temperature for mediumn-rare). Remove to plate, and add lemon juice, if using, salt and pepper to the sauce as needed. Spoon sauce over meat, garnish with chives or parsley, and serve.
