Yield: 6 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Mushrooms; chopped
½ \N Onion; chopped
½ cup Sherry
¼ cup Butter
½ cup Wine, white
2 tablespoons Tarragon vinegar
1 tablespoon Onion; finely chopped
2 \N Peppercorns; crushed

1 \N Parsley sprig; chopped
3 \N Egg yolks
¾ cup Butter; melted


Cook the first 5 ingredients in a frying pan till all liquid is absorbed and mixture resembles a paste. Cover tops of steaks.

Partially thaw patty shells and roll out thin enough to cover top, sides and part of the bottom of each steak. Cover with plastic wrap and store in refrigerator till serving time.

Sauce: Cook over direct heat until reduced by half, the first 6 ingre- dients. Strain mixture and cool. Before serving; in top of double boiler over hot (not boiling) water, beat in alternately the yolks and the melted butter. Preheat oven to 425. Cook steaks on a rack, uncovered, for 25 minutes. They will be rare but will continue cooking while sauce is added and dish is served.
