2) Remove with a slotted spoon, drain on paper towels, sprinkle with the salt and pepper and keep warm in the oven.
3) Rub the steaks evenly with the mustard and season with salt and pepper.
4) In a heavy saute pan or skillet, saute the steaks over a medium-high heat in the oil for about 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare or 3 to 4 minutes each side for medium. Remove and keep warm in the oven.
5) In the same pan, saute the shallots over a medium-high heat for 1 minute.
6) Stir in the wine, scrape sides of the pan, then add the cream and heat thoroughly.
