  1. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat (I make this on my electric frypan).
  2. Add in the mushrooms; saute until tender (about 10 minutes).
  3. Add in shallots with HALF the minced garlic; saute for about 3 minutes.
  4. Add in thyme and season with salt and pepper; transfer the mushrooms to a bowl.
  5. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter with 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. Season steaks with salt and pepper, and add to skillet.
  7. Cook the steaks to desired doneness (I cook them about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare).
  8. Transfer the steaks to a plate.
  9. Add in remaining 1/4 cup shallots and garlic to the same skillet; sate for about 2 minutes.
  10. Add in Madeira and boil until reduced by half (this should take about 3 minutes).
  11. Add in broth and boil until the mixture is reduced to about 2/3 cup (this should take about 6 minutes).
  12. Add in cream and boil for about 2 minutes.
  13. This is optional, do this only for a thicker sauce: in a small cup using a small whisk, mix together melted butter with 1 tablespoon flour; add to the simmering cream sauce; stir until thickened.
  14. Stir in the mushroom mixture, and then season the sauce with salt and pepper.
  15. Return the steaks to skillet and cook until heated through (about 1 minute).
  16. Transfer to plates and spoon the sauce over.
