The steaks in this classic bistro dish are relatively small compared to those served in restaurants a few years ago. In addition, the meat is trimmed of all fat, leaving each portion with a weight of about 7 ounces, an ample serving.

Although these steaks can be grilled and served plain, I extend the dish with a sauce made of shallots, mushrooms, garlic, and a good, earthy wine, which I thicken with Dijon mustard and then garnish with some fresh chives.
