- 1.5 lbs steak (see note 1), cut into bite sized pieces
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- 6 Tbsp butter
- 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup parsley, chopped
- Salt & pepper to taste
These only take 4-5 minutes, so pay attention. This isn’t the time to be multitasking. Sear your steak bites 2 minutes undisturbed, give them a stir, 2 more minutes then get them out of the pan.
Don’t overcrowd the pan. Cook in batches if need be. You can afford the extra five minutes, but you can’t afford poorly cooked steak bites after bragging to your Valentine about what a nice dinner you’re cooking.
What to serve with these steak bites
They go great with steamed, roasted or sautéed veggies. Today, as you can see from the pictures, we had asparagus. Other options would be green beans, broccoli or zucchini.
