Step-by-Step

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in heavy medium saucepan over medium heat. Add shallots and saute until tender, about 4 minutes. Add brown sugar; stir 1 minute.

Transfer steaks to plates. Add sauce to skillet; bring to boil, scraping up any browned bits. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  3. Slice steaks; fan slices on plates. Top with sauce and garnish with chives.
