Steaks cooked in butter and garlic is everything I live for. This meal gets cooked in my house at least once a week for either a quick lunch/brunch or an easy dinner. You can’t ever go wrong with a nice share of beef, garlic, and butter!
I made it last night and everyone at the table, from 4 to 64, loved it. It is not a difficult recipe, but it is a technique I had never thought of, and it worked, and it’s so blessedly easy. I used twice the amount of meat but should have made more because it was such a hit.
Garlic Butter Steak Bites
- Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat with the 1 tbsp olive oil.
- Cut the steak into cubes and season with salt and pepper. I usually do 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper.
- Once the skillet is hot, add in the steak pieces. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Stir occasionally. For the steak to get really crispy, make sure to drain any excess water out of the skillet towards the end of cooking. Once liquid is removed, place the skillet back on the heat and brown another minute or so. This will give the steak a nice crispy texture.
- Transfer the cooked steak to a large bowl and place to the side.
- Transfer the steak back to the skillet and mix together with a large wooden spoon. Make sure to coat the steak evenly with the butter and garlic mixture.
- Season with salt and pepper and serve with your favorite roasted or steamed veggie.
My husband and I prefer a tenderloin/filet because it’s lean and extra tender, but also its price speaks for it; this is entirely up to you. My second preference would be a sirloin because it’s inexpensive and of excellent quality for the cost you pay. A ribeye will have more fat. Tritip is good but a little firmer than the others. Pick any of the ones and surprise your family!
