Steak Bites is a delicious and easy way to prepare a delicious steak meal. This three ingredient dish is the perfect thing to feed all the men in your life!
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!
I made this dish the first time for my husband right before he left for a week long business trip. I wanted to fix him a hearty steak and potato dinner before he left. For my Idaho boy there is nothing he likes better! But steak bites are great when you have lighter eaters at your dinner table too. No need to deal with a large piece of meat. Just take as many bites as you like. No waste!
The Steak Bites were so yummy and so incredibly quick and easy to prepare! I started with a nice piece of Sirloin Steak and cut it up into large bite size pieces.
The trick is to cook them up in a cast iron frying pan with some butter. Make sure your pan is nice and hot.
Just cook to your desired doneness. I like my meat medium well. And the small pieces make the cooking time quick! So make sure to watch your meat.
I served them with some roasted sweet potatoes and a spinach salad.
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
