Generously season the steak with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper and allow to sit at room temperature for about an hour before cooking.
Cut the bottom inch from the asparagus, place in a microwave safe dish and rinse under cold water. Cover with cling wrap and set aside until after the steak has been cooked.
Heat a cast iron skillet, or a nonstick skillet over high heat for about 5 minutes.
Drop a teaspoonful of butter in the pan, and immediately place the steak on top of the butter. Do not move the steak and sear for 3 minutes. Turn the steak, and add another teaspoonful of butter to the pan and immediately place the steak on top of the butter. Sear for another 3 minutes without moving the steak.
Remove steak and allow to rest for about 5 minutes.
Place the asparagus covered with cling wrap in microwave and heat on high for 1 minute, remove, drain and cover with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain before serving.
After 5 minutes, slice the steak into 1 1/2" thick slices.
Top the steak with some Homemade Red Onion Jam and surround with Cook top Roast Potatoes and asparagus spears.
I found tri-tip steak at Fiesta Farms on Christie south of Dupont in Toronto. This store also has other unusual cuts and varieties. For instance, I have routinely seen venison tenderloin, loin and rack. Their produce section is also incredible and they also have what looks like a private label puff pastry. All in all, a great grocer. They also have a fairly extensive garden center.
