Preheat your oven to 325ºF.
Chop the shallots very very finely.
Grate or crush the garlic very finely.
Season both sides of steak with salt.
Place a frying pan on high heat with the grape seed oil.
Once the oil is very hot (do not smoke) gently ease your steak and sear each side until nicely caramelised. Flip steak on its side to sear each side too.
Add black pepper on each side and place in oven at 160ºC or 320ºF for approx 8 minutes, if you like your meat medium rare.
Once steak is cooked, remove from pan and leave aside on a warm plate, in a warm spot.
Place the pan back on full heat and add the chopped shallots, the rosemary and crushed garlic and mix well scraping all the meat residue stuck to the bottom of the pan.
Deglaze pan with the red wine (be careful as the alcohol can ignite) If unsure do it away from any flames.
Add the beef stock plus any juices from the resting steak that may have leaked out. Reduce liquid by approx one fifth, there still should be some liquid left but not much.
Turn the heat down to very low, add the butter to the liquid (jus) and mix well until all the butter is melted. Pour over your meat immediately.
Chop a little bit of parsley for garnish if you wish.
