We seriously couldn’t think of a better combination than garlic, butter and steak. Add these garlic butter steak bites to salad, rice, tacos, mashed potatoes or you can just eat them alone if that’s your thing. They are great as a main dish but they are also a really good appetizer. They are also perfect for kids if you are looking to feed your family. They don’t take long to cook since they are cut into bite sized pieces.
It’s important to make sure that your skillet is hot when you add your steak to the pan so that the steak will get a nice crust. With the pieces being so small, you want to make sure not to overcook them or they will be chewy!
Adding fresh herbs to these steak bites adds another layer of flavor. We recommend a combination of 2-3 herbs. There is no right or wrong way to do it. Here are some herbs that typically go great with steak: oregano, thyme, parsley, and rosemary. But feel free to get creative. This step is totally optional, but we do recommend it for extra flavor.

Garlic Butter Steak Bites
10 minutes minutes

These easy garlic butter steak bites are crowd-pleaser. They take less than 15 minutes to prepare and they are super flavorful.
3 (8oz) sirloins
1 tbsp olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
4 tbsp butter
2-3 tbsp fresh herbs (optional)
Salt and pepper to taste
Let the sirloin sit out at room temperature for 30 minutes. Cut the sirloin into bite sized pieces and then season with salt and pepper. Heat the olive oil in a cast iron skillet (or pan of your choice) over medium/high heat. Once the oil is shimmering, add the steak and cook for about a minute or so on each side depending on the size of the pieces. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook the steak in batches if necessary
Once the steak is done cooking, remove it from the skillet and add it to a glass bowl or serving dish. Reduce the heat of the skillet to low and add the butter, garlic and herbs if you are using them. Stir the butter until the garlic becomes fragrant and browns a little which should take a minute or so. Then pour the butter over the steak. Serve immediately.
