Tender and Juicy Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Tender and juicy garlic butter steak bites are a delectable and flavorful dish that can be served as a main course or as a delightful appetizer. Here’s a quick recipe for this delectable dish:


  • 1 pound (450g) sirloin steak, trimmed and cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  1. Cook the steak: Cut the sirloin steak into bite-sized pieces to begin. Make sure to trim off any extra connective tissue or fat. To remove excess moisture and help achieve a nice sear, pat the steak pieces dry with paper towels.
  2. Season the steak: Generously season the steak bites with salt and pepper, making sure to coat them evenly.
  3. To sear the steak bites, heat the olive oil in a sizable frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Once fragrant, add half of the minced garlic and cook for about 30 seconds. Then, being careful not to crowd the pan, add the seasoned steak bites in a single layer. To prevent the steak from steaming instead of searing due to overcrowding the pan, you might need to cook the steak in batches.
  4. The steak bites should be seared for 1-2 minutes on each side, or until they have a nice crust and are cooked to your preference. Keep in mind that the amount of time required to cook a steak will depend on its thickness and the degree of doneness you prefer (rare, medium-rare, etc.). Flip the steak bites with tongs to evenly brown all sides. When finished, place the warm seared steak bites on a plate and wrap them in aluminum foil.
  5. Melt the remaining butter in the same pan over medium heat to prepare the garlic butter sauce. Be careful not to burn the garlic as you add the remaining minced garlic and cook it for about a minute. As the butter cooks, a delicious garlic flavor will develop.
  6. Combine the steak with the garlic butter: Add the seared steak bites back into the pan with the garlic butter sauce. Toss the steak bites gently to coat them evenly with the garlic butter.
  7. Serve: Transfer the garlic butter steak bites to a serving dish, and if desired, garnish with freshly chopped parsley for a pop of color and added flavor.

For a complete and satisfying meal, serve these tender and juicy garlic butter steak bites with mashed potatoes, rice, or a fresh salad. Enjoy the savory flavors and delectable simplicity of this delectable dish!
