Why you’ll love Butter Garlic Steak Bites
- Quick and easy dinner (ready in 15 minutes).
- Only need one pan – easy clean up.
- Great as a dinner, but also an easy appetizer, just serve on a platter with toothpicks.
- Serve on top of mashed potatoes or rice.
- Family friendly and picky eater approved.
Ingredients for Butter Steak Bites
- Steak – We used sirloin steak cut into small squares.
- Oil – Olive oil is best for this recipe.
- Salt & pepper – You can adjust to your preference but I used 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of cracked black pepper.
- Butter – I typically use unsalted butter in most of my recipes. If you only have salted butter you will want to pull back on the additional salt you add to the recipe.
- Garlic – you can either use garlic cloves, but many times I will make it easier and buy the minced garlic in the jar (I know it is cheating!)
- Italian Seasoning – pick your favorite brand! They are all pretty delicious!
- Parsley – Go fresh and finely chop it.
Additions & Substitutions
Steak: Sirloin steak works best for these bites. However, you can also use strip steak, flank steak, chuck or filet as well.
Garlic: You can buy fresh garlic and mince it yourself. This is really easy if you use a garlic press. Alternatively, you can buy a jar minced instead.
Red Pepper Flakes: If you like things with a kick try sprinkling these with red pepper flakes.

How to make Garlic Butter Steak Bites
- Toss the cubed steak in the salt and pepper.
- In a large frying pan, heat olive oil over high heat and place a single layer of steak in the frying pan.
- Fry steak in batches for about 4-5 minutes. Remove and set aside.
- In the same frying pan, add butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning over medium-high heat. Cook for about 2 minutes.
- Pour the butter mixture over the steak bites and toss to coat.
- Sprinkle parsley over the top to garnish and serve!
Tips for Buttered Steak Bites
Tip 1: You don’t want to add all of the steak to your frying pan all at once. Work in batches so that you are cooking single layers of steak and continue this until all of the steak is cooked.
Tip 2: You can cook the steak to your preferred temperature. I like my steak bites more on the well-done side, but my husband prefers them medium. I usually cook one batch well done for me and one batch medium for him.
Tip 3: To make for a super easy clean up I recommend using the same frying pan for cooking your steak and making the butter mixture. This means there are only a couple of dishes to clean up!
How to serve Steak Bites with Garlic Butter
These can be enjoyed a variety of ways. To keep it simple, you can serve them as an appetizer to a meal. They are the perfect flavorful and light snack to begin any meal.
As I mentioned above, if you are serving them as a party appitizer, just throw them on a platter and stick some toothpicks in each one! The perfect finger food!
Alternatively, you could serve them as protein on a hearty salad (this is my favorite!) You could also serve them as the main course for a meal with a side such as mashed potatoes.
How to store Garlic Steak Bites
Store your bites in an airtight container in the fridge for 3 to 4 days. Be sure to pour all of the garlic butter in with the leftovers as well.
It’s best to store in a container that can be reheated. That way, you can simply place the entire container in the microwave to reheat it and make sure you get all of the delicious garlic butter as well.

Garlic Butter Steak Bites Recipe
- 2 pounds sirloin steak
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- ½ teaspoon cracked black pepper
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ cup unsalted butter
- 5 cloves garlic minced
- ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley finely chopped
- Chop steak into cubes about 2 inches in size. Toss steak in salt and pepper.
- Place olive oil in a large frying pan and heat over high heat.
- Place some steak in frying pan – only until you have a single layer of steak. Don’t add all of it at once – work in batches so that you’re cooking single layers until all the steak is cooked. Fry each batch for about 4-5 minutes until thoroughly cooked. As each batch is cooked, place in a serving dish.
- Once all the steak is cooked and in the serving dish, use the same frying pan to prepare the butter mixture. Place butter, garlic, and Italian seasoning into frying pan over medium-high heat and cook until melted and garlic is slightly browning (no more than 2 minutes).
- Pour butter mixture over steak bites and toss to coat evenly. Sprinkle parsley over to garnish.
Five simple steps is all it takes to make these delicious sirloin steak bites. The garlic butter sauce that coats them is full of flavor and enhances the steak perfectly. It’s a great new way to prepare your next steak dinner.
Used sirloin steak. Followed the directions! A very simple and easy way to make this meal.
Very easy and quick meal. My family loved. Made it just like the recipe.
Tried to print & got nothing??
Can this be sent to my email??
I just sent it to your email! Enjoy!
Can I use ribeye instead of sirloin steak?
About how many people will it feed as an appetizer.
Four of us easily
I substituted chicken and my family loved it!! It is a quick, easy and very tasty meal. I just added a side salad to complement the dish!
Great recipe and easy
Thanks for sharing
I made it with tri-tip strips…..very good!!
Steak bites looks easy and delicious
But will the sirloin be tender after 4-5 minutes? I don’t want tough steak bites.
If you are worried – just give it a little less time and test it. You can always cook it longer. But I think it is perfect!
