Season steak on both sides with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a heavy skillet until very hot, but not smoking. Add steak and brown on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side, until done to your liking. Remove and cover to keep warm.

Add shallots to pan and cook until fragrant and starting to brown, 1 to 2 minutes. Add wine and stir, scraping up brown bits from bottom of pan. Bring to a brisk simmer and cook for 3 to 4 minutes to reduce wine to a glaze consistency. Stir in parsley and chives. Take the pan from the heat and whisk in butter, just until it melts into the sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Slice the steak and drizzle sauce over it. Garnish with additional chopped parsley and chives.
