  • First, heat cast iron skillet over medium heat and add 2 tablespoons olive oil.
  • Season both sides of steak with pepper, thyme and sea salt and place steaks into skillet.
  • Sear steaks for 3 to 4 minutes on each side before removing from pan.
  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil to the pan and cut onion. Turn heat to low and cook onions for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until caramelized.
  • Once caramelized, add coconut cream, beef broth, garlic and onion powder to the skillet. Cook for 2 minutes.
  • Next, remove ¼ cup of the gravy in the skillet and add it to a small bowl. Whisk in tapioca flour to this bowl.
  • Once combined, pour into the skillet and bring gravy to a boil, stirring occasionally.
  • Once boiling, lower heat to a simmer.
  • Lastly, place steaks back in the skillet and cook for another 10 to 12 minutes or until steak is cooked through and gravy has thickened.
  • Serve steak and onions over mashed potatoes if desired. Drizzle gravy on top.


  • Be patient when cooking onions.  Low heat will yield the best results.
  • The longer the gravy cooks, the thicker it will become.
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
