Garlic butter steak bites


• 1 pound (450 grams) sirloin steak, ribeye, or your preferred cut, cut into bite-sized pieces

• 3 tablespoons unsalted butter

• 4 cloves garlic, minced

• 1 teaspoon olive oil

• Salt and black pepper, to taste

• 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)

• Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish (optional)


Prepare the Steak:Start by cutting the steak into bite-sized pieces, about 1-inch cubes. Season the steak pieces generously with salt and black pepper.
Sear the Steak:Heat a large skillet or frying pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil.
When the oil is hot, add the steak pieces to the skillet. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan; you may need to cook the steak in batches. Allow the steak to sear without stirring for about 2-3 minutes, or until it develops a nice brown crust. Flip the pieces and sear the other side for another 2-3 minutes for medium-rare. Adjust the cooking time to your desired level of doneness.
Remove the seared steak pieces from the skillet and set them aside on a plate.
Make the Garlic Butter Sauce:
In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium-low. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 1 minute, or until it becomes fragrant. Be careful not to let it brown or burn.
Combine the Steak and Garlic Butter:
Return the seared steak pieces to the skillet with the garlic. Add the butter and dried thyme (if using).
Stir everything together, ensuring the steak pieces are coated with the garlic butter sauce.
Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes, allowing the steak to absorb the flavors of the garlic butter sauce. You can cook it longer if you prefer your steak more well-done.
Remove the skillet from the heat and garnish the steak bites with fresh chopped parsley (if desired).
Serve immediately while hot, either as an appetizer with toothpicks or as a main dish with your choice of sides, such as mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a salad.
