Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, heat oil and melt butter. Sear steaks for 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Transfer meat to an ovenproof dish, salt and pepper generously, and continue cooking in oven (to desired doneness) while preparing sauce.

To prepare sauce, cook shallots in the same frying pan. Sprinkle flour over shallots and continue cooking over medium heat until flour becomes reddish-brown. Deglaze pan with wine, add stock and thyme. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened.

Add blueberries and cheese, season to taste. Let cheese melt and spoon over sliced steak (be sure to slice meat against the grain). Serve with new potatoes and green beans.
