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
The key to juicy steak bites is to lock in the flavor by searing the meat first. Next, you will make the buttery sauce to pour over top of the steak.
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.
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.
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.
STEP FIVE: Pour the garlic herb butter mixture over the steak bites in the serving dish and toss them to coat evenly. Sprinkle parsley over the top to garnish, and serve your juicy steak bites!
How To Serve
You could also serve the steak over egg noodles or zucchini noodles if you prefer.

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 it 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.

Once the steak bites are frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or freezer bag. They will keep well in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Five simple steps are all it takes to make these delicious sirloin steak bites. The garlic butter sauce that coats them is full of flavor and enhances the steak perfectly. It’s a great new way to prepare your next steak dinner.
