Surf and Turf

My friends think that they are dining in a fancy restaurant when I make this for them. Most people think surf and turf is a very difficult dish to make, but you will see how simple it is. 
2 filet mignons or 2 shell steaks (any steak you wish is fine)
2 frozen lobster tails (4 oz. each)
1/4 c. butter
2 tsp. lemon juice
2 tbsp. butter
1 (12 oz.) pkg. sliced mushrooms
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp. cornstarch, blend with 1/2 c. Madeira wine

Salt and pepper steaks and put in broiler. Broil 4-6 minutes on each side for medium.  Bring pot of water to boil. In small sauce pan sauté onion and mushrooms in 2 tbsp. of butter. Combine cornstarch and Madeira wine and pour into mushrooms and onions. Whisk until thick and heated through.  Once steaks are cooked, drop lobster tails in boiling water for about 4 minutes.  Cook tails completely. Meanwhile melt butter. Place steak and lobster tail on plate. Pour Madeira wine sauce over steak and squeeze lemon on lobster tail.

I serve both over mashed potatoes and remove tails from shells.
