- Add the Demi Glace and bring to a boil.
- Remove the pan from the heat, strain the sauce through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean saucepan or double boiler, and keep warm.
- Heat the butter in a sauté pan or skillet.
- Add the steaks to the hot pan and sear over high heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare and 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium.
