Heat 1 tbsp of the oil in a heavy-based frying pan and sauté the shallots, garlic, pancetta and thyme together over a moderate heat until the shallots are soft and the pancetta lightly golden. Remove from the pan and set aside
Place another tablespoon of olive oil into the pan with the mushrooms and continue to fry until the mushrooms are just cooked. Combine them with the shallots and pancetta mix. Keep warm.
Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat the remaining oil. Add the steaks and fry for 2 ½ minutes on each side for rare. Add the butter for the final minute of cooking to help brown the steak and to keep it moist, spooning it over as the beef cooks. Spread some mustard over the top of the steaks. Transfer the beef to a warm plate and leave to rest.
Deglaze the pan with the red wine vinegar and reduce until almost fully evaporated. Add the tomato puree, stock and crème fraiche. Reduce the liquid down by a third until thickened slightly. Return the shallots, pancetta, garlic and mushrooms and their juices to the pan then check for seasoning. Finish with a few knobs of butter for a velvety finish. Add the parsley to the sauce just before serving.

Darwin ---the capital city of the Northern Territory Darwin has a pace that might - almost - be described as brisk, at least by Northern Territory standards. The city's populace now reflects its proximity to Asia: the mix of some 50 cultures including Aborigines, Vietnamese, Filipinos, Malays, New Guineans, Pacific Islanders, Japanese, Indonesians and European Australians, provides a strong cosmopolitan flavour. The Northern Territory’s capital, Darwin was founded in 1869, after more than 40 years of failed settlements in the north – abandoned one after another because of malaria outbreaks, cyclones, Aboriginal attacks and supply failure due to the sheer distance from the other white settlements. It was named after Charles Darwin, one of whose shipmates on the Beagle discovered the bay in 1839. The best way to appreciate Darwin's multiethnic mix is to visit this market, held every Thursday and Sunday evening from April to October, with stalls selling foods from around the world and handmade craft including crocodile products, indigenous art and jewellery.
