About this recipe:Be careful when making this dish. Like a magic love potion, it brings out the lover in anyone. I learned very quickly not to prepare this for a mere 'casual date' - unless you want that date to become something more!

In a medium saucepan, mix together wine (reserving 1 teaspoon), oil, soy sauce, oyster sauce, garlic and oregano. Bring to a boil, and then remove from heat. Chill for 1 hour.
Place fillet steaks in a 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish, and pour the chilled marinade over them. Cover tightly with foil, and chill for a minimum of 5 hours.
In a medium bowl, cream butter and 1 teaspoon of Burgundy wine with a hand mixer. Mix in shallots, spring onions and white pepper by hand; cover tightly, and refrigerate.
Preheat barbecue for high heat. Preheat oven to 110 C / Gas mark 1/4.
Barbecue the marinated fillets to desired temperature, turning once. Place fillets in a clean 23x33cm (9x13 in) baking dish. Dollop with the Burgundy butter mixture, and place in the preheated oven for a minute, or until butter is melted.
Allow 5 hours for the steaks to marinate.
Alternatively, cook the steaks on the hob in a ridged griddle pan, or under the grill.
