    - Whisk the yolks into the vinegar mixture.
    - Set bowl over a double boiler and cook until hot.

    To assemble:
    - Add about 1/3 cup of the sauce to the bowl of crab and asparagus.
    - Lightly toss to coat.
    - Plate the steaks and top with a generous portion of the crab-asparagus mixture.
