  3. When you are ready to eat,heat up a grill pan or a heavy,large frying pan for cooking the steaks.Drizzle steaks with olive oil and sea salt and pepper.Place the steaks on the hot pan and cook on either for a few minutes if you want it rare,approximately 6 minutes for medium rare or 8-10 minutes for well done.When the steaks are cooked,take them off the pan,allow them off the pan,allow them to rest for 2 minutes then serve with a lovely helping of mushrooms and Sherry/brandy sauce and the tomato fondue.
