Steak Bites

The three boys in our house LOVE steak, and are always asking for it!
I don't cook it often because of the cost, and my lack of love for steak.
However, when I cook this recipe the Steak bites are gone very quickly.
Having steak cooked in bite sizes is a a fun and different way to serve steak, and also makes dinner cooking time quicker.
Serve with your favorite sides and enjoy!

Steak Bites

What You Need:

-1 sirloin steak


-1 pkg. pre-cut beef tips

-Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper


How To Make:

1. Trim off the large obvious pieces of fat that run along the side of the meat. Cut strips less than 1 inch wide. Cut into small bite-sized pieces. If you see anymore large chunks of fat, gristle or long silvery membranes cut them off.

2. Sprinkle generously with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Toss the meat around a bit to thoroughly coat with the seasonings.

3. Heat the skillet over medium high to high heat. As the pan heats, add about 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet. Allow the butter to melt, then brown, before you add the meat.

4. 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 completley cook the inside, or in will be over-done.

5. 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 and drippings all over the meat.

Serve with Vegies, potatoes, or any other side.
