To make anchovy butter, mix all the ingredients with softened butter in a bowl. Form butter into logs.
The best way to do this is to spoon the butter onto a piece of plastic wrap, roll it up tightly and tie the ends. Freeze butter until needed.
Season steaks with salt and freshly ground black pepper and place on a hot grill or a hot pan. To achieve medium rare, cook for 3 minutes on each side for a 1-inch steak.
Unwrap butter and cut into medallions, allowing 2 for each steak.
Once steaks reach medium rare, place butter medallions on top and flash under a hot grill, just until they start to melt.
To make salad dressing, mix olive oil and chardonnay vinegar. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper. Lightly dress salad and serve.
Serve steaks immediately with olive oil, mashed potato and endive and radish salad.
