Steak Bites Ingredients

Steak Bites raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need: 

  • 2 pounds sirloin steak
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 5 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

STEAK: Sirloin steak works best for these flavorful steak bites. However, you can also use a different cut of steak such as strip steak, flank steak, chuck, or filet as well. 

GARLIC: You can buy fresh garlic and mince it yourself. This is really easy if you use a garlic press. Alternatively, you can buy minced garlic in a jar instead. 

RED PEPPER FLAKES: If you like things with a kick, try sprinkling these juicy garlic butter steak bites with red pepper flakes.

How To Make This Steak Bites Recipe 

STEP ONE: Chop your steak into cubes that are about 2 inches in size. Toss the steak in salt and pepper to season it.

STEP TWO: Place the olive oil in a large frying pan or large skillet and heat it over high heat.

PRO TIP:

Because butter can burn at high heat, using the olive oil to cook the steak and preparing the garlic butter separately will ensure that everything cooks perfectly at the temperature that is best for each component.

STEP THREE: Place some of the steak pieces in the hot pan (only until you have a single layer of steak). You don’t want to add it all at once. Work in batches so that you are cooking single layers of steak and continue this until all of the steak is cooked. Fry each batch in the hot skillet for about 4 to 5 minutes until thoroughly cooked. As each batch is cooked, place it in a serving dish and set it aside. 

PRO TIP:

Try not to stir the steak bites for the first minute or so to allow the pieces to get a nice sear on them to lock in the juicy flavor.

STEP FOUR: Once all of the pieces of steak are cooked and in the serving dish, use the same frying pan to prepare the butter mixture. Place your butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning into the frying pan over medium-high heat and cook until the butter is melted and the garlic is slightly browned. This should take no longer than 2 minutes.

How To Serve

Our favorite sides to serve with these tender steak bites include creamy mashed potatoes and green beans. It’s also fantastic over fried rice.

You could also serve the steak over egg noodles or zucchini noodles if you prefer.

Storage 

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your garlic steak bites in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Be sure to pour all of the garlic butter in with the leftovers as well. It’s best to store in a container that can be reheated. That way, you can simply place the entire container in the microwave to reheat it and make sure you get all of the delicious garlic butter as well.

IN THE FREEZER: You can also freeze leftover steak bites for up to three months in an airtight container.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the best cut of meat to use for this recipe?

This delicious recipe calls for a sirloin steak cut but strip steak, flank steak, chuck, or filet are all great choices as well.

Can I freeze steak bites?

These delicious steak bites can be frozen for up to three months in an airtight container.

Can I cook the steak in the butter to save time?

Since butter can burn at higher heat but you need high heat to cook the steak, it is best to cook the butter sauce separately at a lower heat and use olive oil to cook the steak.

    My extremely picky 8 year old LOVED these, the whole family loved them. I had a bit of garlic and butter left in the pan so I cooked asparagus in that too, so yummy! Also made homemade mac n cheese in my insta-pot! Great meal, thank you!

    Can I give you five stars if it sounds wonderful…and easy!! But here is my question…what do you serve with this? Rice, potatoes, or pasta? I know any of those would be fine, but what does your husband prefer?
