While your cast iron pan is pre-heating, heat olive oil in another small pan over medium heat. Add garlic and cook for 30-60 seconds. Add the crab, lemon juice and Old Bay, and cook until just heated through.
Preheat your cast iron pan as hot as you can get it. Remove the steaks from the bag and dry well. Sear steaks on the first side for 30 - 45 seconds. If you want, you can use a torch to brown the sides while the bottom sears. After 30 to 45 seconds, flip the steaks and sear for another 30 to 45 seconds or until nicely browned.
To assemble, place some steamed asparagus on a plate. Place one steak on top of the asparagus. Add half the crab mixture on top of the steak, then cover with a couple tablespoons of Béarnaise. Garnish with extra tarragon and a sprinkle of Old Bay.
