Garlic Butter Steak Bites

These tender, juicy garlic butter steak bites are seared to perfection in a delicious garlic butter sauce, and make an easy, perfect meal or appetizer! Whole30, Paleo, Keto, and Kid-Friendly!

  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 lbs sirloin steak cut into small cubes
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 34 garlic cloves-minced
  • 2 tbsp ghee or your preferred vegan butter
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat with the 1 tbsp olive oil.
  2. Cut the steak into cubes and season with salt and pepper. I usually do 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. 
  3. Once the skillet is hot, add in the steak pieces. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. Stir occasionally. For the steak to get really crispy, make sure to drain any excess water out of the skillet towards the end of cooking. Once liquid is removed, place the skillet back on the heat and brown another minute or so. This will give the steak a nice crispy texture. 
  4. Transfer the cooked steak to a large bowl and place to the side. 
  5. To the hot skillet add the ghee and the minced garlic. Heat for 30 seconds. 
  6. Transfer the steak back to the skillet and mix together with a large wooden spoon. Make sure to coat the steak evenly with the butter and garlic mixture.
  7. Season with salt and pepper and serve with your favorite roasted or steamed veggie. 
  8. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Make sure to remove excess water out of the pan as the steak cooks. I prefer the steak to get really crispy and for this to happen, the water will need to be drained off. 
  • If you don’t want to use sirloin steak, feel free to use strip steak, tenderloin or rib eye.
  • Nutrition information provided is an estimate and will vary based on cooking methods and brands of ingredients used.
