How much do we love steak bites? Let me count the ways: fast, one pan, great for any cut of steak, quick appetizer, kid friendly and goes with any side dish.
Steak Bite Tips
- Choose your steak. Top sirloin is our go-to but any steak will work from ribeyes and new york strip to flat iron and delmonico.
- Cut steaks into 1 – 1 ½ inch bite size pieces. Be consistent with size so they cook at the same rate.
- Season steak bites evenly, tossing to coat. Salt and pepper works great or your favorite steak rub seasoning.
- The secret is in the sear. Get the skillet hot. Use an oil, like avocado oil, that works well with high heat. You want the crust to form on steak bites in 30-45 seconds per side. Any longer will overcook the steak bites.
- Don’t overcrowd the pan when searing. Work in batches and add more oil if needed.
- Remove the steak bites and let them rest while you deglaze the pan. Deglaze with butter and scrape up those flavorful seared pieces of steak.
- Need a non-dairy option? Deglaze with beef stock or red wine.
- Garlic is optional. My family isn’t a fan so we leave it out. It does add wonderful flavor but be sure to add at the very end with the heat turned down so you don’t burn the garlic. Burnt garlic is bitter and will ruin the flavor of your dish.
Steak Bites are a family favorite at our house. Serve alongside your favorite side dish, leftover side dishes or cut up some fresh vegetables for dipping.
Looking forward to warmer summer months and trying Steak Bites on the Flat Top Grill outside. A cast iron skillet on your traditional grill will work like charm taking the entire meal outdoors.
