2. In a big, heavy-based pan, fry the mushrooms in the butter and olive oil over medium to high heat. Add the garlic and season to taste. Set aside in the pan.
3. Heat a griddle pan until piping hot. Brush each steak with olive oil, season on both sides with salt and sear for 2 minutes on each side.
