Steak Bites are a delicious and easy way to prepare a delicious steak meal and you only need three ingredients.
3 Ingredient Dinner Idea
If you love steak, but want a quick and easy way to prepare it indoors, these steak bites are for you! I have made these twice in the last few weeks because they are so easy and delicious. If you are eating Paleo or Whole30 these are a great recipe choice!
They are great when you have lighter eaters at your dinner table. No need to deal with a large piece of meat. Just take as many bites as you like. No waste!
How to Make Steak Bites
- Choose your type of meat. I used a sirloin steak but you could use your favorite cute of steak.
- Cut steak into large bite size pieces.
- Heat up a cast iron pan nice and hot. If you don’t have a cast iron pan use a heavy skillet.
- Add butter and let it melt.
- Cook steak to your desired doneness. I like my meat medium to medium rare. And the small pieces make the cooking time quick! So make sure to watch your meat.
What to Serve Steak Bites With:
I use my cast iron pan for so many things it really is a must have in the kitchen for me. In fact I have 3 of them!!

Steak Bites Recipe
- 1 lb sirloin steak
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- Trim off the large obvious pieces of fat that run along the side of the meat
- Cut strips less than 1 inch wide
- Rotate the meat and cut into small bite-sized pieces
- If you see anymore large chunks of fat, gristle or long silvery membranes cut them off
- Sprinkle generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- Toss the meat around a bit to thoroughly coat with the seasonings
- Turn on your ventilation fan overhead
- Heat the skillet over medium high to high heat
- As the pan heats, add about 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet
- The point here is to allow the butter to melt, then brown, before you add the meat
- Place some of the meat in the pan in a single layer
- It should sizzle loudly when it hits the pan – if it doesn’t, the pan isn’t hot enough
- Don’t stir or disrupt the meat for 30 to 45 seconds
- You want it to sizzle and brown on one side
- Now scoop as many steak bites as you can with your spatula and flip them over
- Repeat until all the meat is turned
- Cook for an additional 30 seconds or so – just long enough to sear the outside of the meat but NOT cook the inside
- (LA Note: I like my meat medium to medium-well so I cooked mine longer.)
- Remove the meat to a clean plate
- Add a little more butter to the pan and repeat the cooking process with the next batch just as before
- Lastly when all the meat is nicely browned and removed to the plate pour all that browned/blackened butter all over the meat
