How To Make steak oscar

  • 1
    After the steak filets are grilled to the desired level, let them rest.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, boil a little bit of water in an asparagus steamer pot and put the asparagus in; steam them for 4 minutes.
  • 3
    During the same time, in a small skillet over medium heat, add butter. When melted and it starts sizzling, add the crab meat, stir well and heat it through, about 2 ½ to 3 minutes. To this, add freshly squeezed lemon juice, give it a quick stir and let it cook for only 1 minute.
  • 4
    To assemble: Place steak on a warm plate followed by mashed potatoes. Add a fair amount of crab meat on the top center of the steak keeping the larger pieces for later.
  • 5
    Spoon on the Béarnaise sauce carefully before placing 2 to 3 asparagus spears over – cut them to match for a neater presentation so they don’t hang over the edge.
  • 6
    Add more crab meat on top – it’s always good to keep the bigger pieces for this – and for the final touch, add a tiny pinch of paprika.
