1. Remove the beef from the refrigerator so it returns to room temperature. Pat dry the meat with paper towels.
2. In a regular frying pan, place the steaks, fat side first and render the fat from the beef.
3. Sear and brown the meat on both sides for about 2 minutes. It's important that you do not pierce the meat (use tongs) so it remains tender. The meat will finish cooking in the butter. Transfer to a plate.
4. Remove half the amount of the drippings from the pan. Add butter and the cloves of garlic.
5. Return the steaks and continuously baste the steaks with butter, using a large tablespoon so the meat is always coated with melted butter.
6. Cook the steak for about 7 minutes per side. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
7. Remove the steaks from the pan, cover with a piece of aluminum foil and let the meat sit for at least 10 minutes before slicing.
8. Serve immediately with the Sauce Chasseur and mashed potatoes on the side.
Note:Make sure the steaks are sliced against the grain, so the meat remains tender.

How to make Sauce Chasseur:
1. Melt 3 tablespoons unsalted butter in a saucepan.
2. Add 1 finely chopped shallot and ¾ teaspoon pink peppercorns. Once they're translucent and fragrant, add ½ cup coarsely chopped button mushrooms and pour in 1 cup of beef stock and 1/3 cup red wine. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat.
3. In a small separate bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon cornstarch with 3 tablespoons water. Add 1 teaspoon tomato paste. Stir well and add to the pan. Mix well.
4. Add 1 tablespoon crème fraîche (optional). Adjust consistency of the sauce (with more water or cream). Season with salt and pepper.
