1 Preheat the oven to 200°F. In a large skillet, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter over medium heat. Add the pancetta. Cook until the pancetta is golden, about 5 minutes. Remove the pancetta with a slotted spoon and pour out the fat.
2 Pat the steaks dry. Melt the remaining tablespoon of the butter in the same skillet over medium heat. When the butter foam subsides, place the steaks in the skillet and cook until nicely browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Turn the meat over with tongs and cook 4 minutes on the other side for rare, or 5 to 6 minutes for medium rare. To check for doneness, make a small cut in the thickest part. Transfer the steaks to a heatproof plate and keep warm in the oven.
3 Add the shallots to the pan and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the wine, broth, and balsamic vinegar. Bring to a simmer and cook until the liquid is thick and syrupy, about 3 minutes.
4 Stir the pancetta into the pan juices. Spoon the sauce over the steaks and serve immediately.
