How to Make Garlic Butter Steak Bites:

heated skillet with oil

Step 1. Prepare the hot skillet. Heat the oil in a large skillet over high heat.  I recommend using a large cast iron skillet.  

Placing steak bites in skillet

Step 3. Allow to cook. Cook the steak for 2 minutes without flipping it so that they get browned.

Topping cooked steak with butter and garlic

Step 4. Stir the steak. Then gently toss the steak and cook it for 2-3 more minutes until the steak is cooked through and browned. 

  • Step 5. Reduce the heat. Turn the heat down to medium. Add the minced garlic and butter to the skillet.  Cook for about 30-60 seconds until the butter is melted and the garlic is aromatic. 
  • Step 6. Garnish with parsley. Remove from heat, top with parsley, serve warm and enjoy! 

Recipe Tips

  • Remove excess moisture from the steak. Pat them dry with a paper towel before cutting into pieces. This will help them to have a nice crust and brown perfectly.
  • Room temperature meat. Allow the steak to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before cooking it. It will help the recipe turn out even more tender.
  • Make sure the pan is hot. It should be preheated before adding the steak. This will help the steak to cook evenly and have the perfect sear.
  • Cook in batches. The steak needs to be cooked in batches so the pan is not overcrowded. You do not want the steak to be steamed and this will occur if overcrowded.
  • Allow to rest. The steak bites need to rest after cooking. This will help the meat to stay juicy and tender. This simple step results in perfectly tender steak.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What are steak bites made from?

Steak bites are typically made from Sirloin Steak with a blend of butter, herbs and seasoning.

Should you melt butter on steak?

Butter adds richness to the steak and also helps to make it more tender.

Why do my steak bites come out tough?

Overcooking the meat can make the steak bites tough. They do not take long to cook at all and should be watched carefully to prevent over cooking.

Is it better to cook steak with salted or unsalted butter?

We prefer to use unsalted butter as some cuts of meat are already salty. Using unsalted butter allows you to control the salt content and add additional salt later if needed.
