Succulent Garlic Butter Steak Bites are the name of the game today!

Today we start a new adventure on the WGC Instagram - we're taking back dinner time and we're doing it in under 30 minutes. Lots of details to come (as I just decided this last night and have to work it all out - 30 videos in 30 days is slightly unhinged) but stay tuned because it's going to be fantastic. I thought since we're tackling dinner in under 30, we kick things off here on the website with Steak Bites!

I'm in my "bites" era. I've made Salmon Bites and Chicken Bites most recently on IG live and today, Steak Bites. Maybe it's because I had a toddler or maybe it's just because things that are small are more fun to eat. Regardless, these Steak Bites are delightful. Little morsels of steak (cut into about a 1ish inch cube) seared to perfection and then finished in a fragrant garlic shallot butter sauce. You'll want to add these to your menu on a weekly basis. They are addictive.

How to Make Garlic Butter Steak Bites

Step 2: Heat a large cast iron skillet to medium-high heat. Once the skillet is hot, add in an additional 2 tablespoons of oil and let heat until shimmering. Once shimmering, add in the cubes of steak and cook in small batches making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Cook for about 1-2 minutes and then flip to get a great sear.

Tips & Tricks

  • Get a good sear. You'll want to use a heavy bottom cast iron or enamel pan. Think Lodge or Le Creuset those yield the best sears.
  • Don't mess with the steak. Once it's in the pan, let it really sear for about 2 minutes before trying to turn it over to the over side. The meat should naturally release from the pan when it's ready to flip. If you try to flip it too early, you'll see some stickage.

    OMG these are good! Adding to weekly rotation. So easy!! I didn’t have a shallot and they were still delightful. Tip: pick up Prime Sirilon steaks from Costco. Perfection.
