  2. Transfer steaks to serving plates. Return skillet to heat, add shallots to hot pan; reduce heat to low. Stir, scraping any brown bits from pan (about 1 minute). Add vinegar to skillet, bring to a low boil and cook, reducing by half.
  3. Remove pan from heat, stirring in butter to melt. Pour over steaks; serve immediately.
