Delicious Garlic Butter Steak Bites: A Mouthwatering Delight

Imagine sinking your teeth into juicy, tender steak bites coated with aromatic garlic butter. These delectable morsels are not only quick and easy to make but also disappear in a flash! Whether you serve them as finger food on appetizer night, as part of your game day spread, or as a fun family dinner date, these steak bites are sure to impress.

Ingredients That Make the Magic Happen

To create these garlic butter steak bites, you’ll need the following ingredients:

  • Steak (any tender, boneless cut cut into cubes)
  • Butter
  • Fresh minced garlic
  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Optional: Chopped parsley for garnish

Cooking Instructions: A Flavorful Adventure

  1. Begin by taking the steak out of the fridge approximately 30 minutes before cooking to let it reach room temperature. Cut the steak into bite-sized pieces and season them to your liking. Leave them on a plate, ready to be cooked.

  2. Heat a cast iron skillet over high heat until it sizzles. Add the oil and sear the steak bites for about 2 minutes per side, aiming for a beautifully browned crust. Be careful of splatters and remember to wear something long-sleeved for protection.

  3. Once the steak bites are seared, reduce the heat to medium. Add the butter and minced garlic to the skillet, heating them for 1-2 minutes until the garlic becomes fragrant. Remove from heat.

  4. Toss the steak bites in the hot garlic butter, ensuring they are thoroughly coated. For an extra touch, sprinkle chopped parsley on top.

Tips to Elevate Your Culinary Experience

  • For tender steak bites, allow the meat to reach room temperature before cooking.
  • Customize the size of your steak bites to your preference – smaller bites cook more quickly, while larger ones retain a more medium middle.
  • Experiment with searing times and temperatures to achieve your desired level of doneness. Remember, shorter and hotter results in a rarer center, while longer and medium-high heat yields more well-done bites.

Serving Ideas: Pairing Perfection

These garlic butter steak bites can be enjoyed in various ways. If serving them as part of an appetizer spread, they pair wonderfully with air fryer potato wedges, homemade chipotle mayo, or stuffed mushrooms. As a main course, they can be served over rice, mashed or smashed potatoes, or alongside air fryer french fries. Complement the dish with roasted asparagus, broccoli, sautéed zucchini, or garlic butter baked mushrooms for a complete and satisfying meal.
