How to make it
- In pie pan or similar, combine the flour and the black pepper.
- Drizzle a heavy, large pan, cast iron, if possible,( you can do this step in 2 batches if you don't have a pan big enough to hold all 6) with olive oil and heat over medium heat.
- Dredge the steaks in the flour mixture, lightly coating both sides, and place in the heated oil.
- Add garlic and onion in between the steaks.
- Cook about 4 minutes, then flip and cook another 3 or 4, until lightly browned.
- Continue with other batch, if needed.(if you have to do 2 batches, cook the onions and garlic during the second batch so they don't burn)
- Break up all the yummy bits on the bottom of the pan, then add all the steaks back to it.
- Add stock, tomato juice, mushrooms, carrots, honey and Worcestershire sauce.
- Bring to a high simmer, then reduce temperature to maintain a medium simmer for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally. You want the mixture to thicken about to a gravy consistency.
- Add asparagus tips and cook about 5 more minutes.
- Don't forget the mashed potatoes! ;-)
