Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Tender buttery Garlic Steak Bites are crisp on the edges and juicy inside with just a few minutes of cooking time. I’ve been hooked on cooking steak bites for a few years now.

I can never resist sneaking a bite (or three) straight from the pan once they’re ready!

Plenty of fresh garlic and butter add flavor galore to this simple recipe for steak bites. If you haven’t yet tried steak bites, put them on your meal plan right now.

The juiciest steak you might ever eat can be ready in just five minutes! Crisp and browned on the outside, hot and juicy inside, there is never a single bite leftover when I make these.

In less time than it takes to heat the grill, you can have a steak dinner on the table. Served with a baked potato and roasted broccoli, Garlic Steak Bites are a huge favorite at dinner time.

Classic Steak Bites were the first steak bite I made and served them with Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, and Crispy Brussels Sprouts. and an awesome homemade steak sauce that I’ll be sharing tomorrow.

These Asian Steak Bites are briefly marinated in a honey soy marinade that gives them a crazy amount of flavor. They are phenomenal with a bowl of Simple Asian Rice on the side. I’ve also served these with Roasted Red Potatoes, Melting Sweet Potatoes, and Spicy Caramelized Cauliflower.

Garlic Butter Steak Bites are a fast and easy meal that is perfect for weeknight dinners!

I have two boys who aren’t the biggest fans of steak – but they love mushrooms, go figure. (Yes, I know, it’s hard to imagine!) However, they dive right into these Buttered Steak Bites with Mushrooms and always ask for seconds. Served with Salt Potatoes and Honey Sriracha Roasted Broccoli, I love every bite of this meal.

We like to serve these Indian Spiced Steak Bites over this Carnitas Salad Bowl (just swap the pork for these steak bites), with Turmeric Butter Rice, or with these Turmeric Roasted Potatoes and Green Beans.

Steak Bites drizzles with garlic butter are irresistible!

Cooking Tips

The goal when cooking the meat is to create a crisply browned outside and a lovely pink and juicy center for each piece.

As the meat is cooking, if a piece is slightly larger and has a side that looks like it hasn’t browned, flip to that side again for 20-30 seconds. Take caution not to overcook the steak.

Garlic Butter Steak Bites Recipe

  1. Cut the steak into bite-size pieces, about 1/2″ – 3/4″ in size. Sprinkle the meat generously with 3/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, and garlic. Heat a heavy flat bottomed stainless skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter. When the butter has melted, swirl to coat the pan. Add about half of the meat and spread it across the pan.

  2. Cook for 1 minute and then use a large spatula to flip the pieces over. Cook 1 more minute. Use a spatula to remove the meat to a plate and then repeat with the second batch of meat pieces. Add an additional tablespoon butter to the skillet. The entire cooking process for the meat should only take a few minutes total. When all of the meat has finished cooking, loosely tent foil over the cooked steak bites on the plate.

  3. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the hot skillet. Scrape up any browned bits of meat from the bottom of the skillet. Pour the buttery pan drippings over the steak bites on the plate. Serve hot.
