Garlic butter steak bites are bite-sized pieces of a cut of steak marinated in a garlicky butter sauce and then tossed into a hot cast iron skillet to sizzle away. Did I mention that it includes simple ingredients? Now, don’t these juicy garlic butter steak bites sound delicious and tempting, folks? Oh, another thing about these juicy steak bites is that you can cook your steak pieces in the oven or air fryer!
Steak- I used top sirloin steak, but you can use any good steak, such as tri-tip steak, ribeye steak, or a New York strip steak. It’s your preference.
Worcestershire Sauce- This is where all the flavor comes in. You want to try to let your garlic steak bites marinate in that sauce.
Seasoning- Garlic Powder, black pepper, thyme, and Montreal steak seasoning.
Minced Garlic- This easy meal would not be the same without the garlic. This, along with the Worcestershire sauce, complements things well.
Butter- Salted or unsalted is just fine.
Olive Oil- This, combined with the butter, will give you a lot of flavor.

This has got to be one of the easiest and most convenient ways to cook a meal. These steak bites are, again, so easy to make.
The very first thing you will want to do is gather all of your ingredients together.
Next, in a bowl, add your diced steak. Season your steak, add minced garlic, and pour Worcestershire sauce over the steak.
Take your hands and mix those ingredients together well. Once you have everything mixed up, at this point, you can let them marinate overnight or for up to 12 hours. This step is optional.
You want to preheat your pan to medium-high. Add in your butter, along with a small amount of olive oil.
Next, you want to add in your steak bites. Don’t overcrowd the pan.
Lastly, let them cook on a hot sear until lightly browned. Once the outside of the steak becomes brown, drain the butter mixture from the pan and add them back into your steak bites. Allow them to cook until they have a nice crust. Add in some more butter, and enjoy! Optional: Add your favorite sauce or enjoy it with leftover steak bites sauce.
If you don’t have Montreal seasoning, you can use any steak seasoning you choose. McCormick and Kinder's seasoning has some awesome ones. You can also try using fresh herbs other than the thyme.
If you want to spice things up, you can add red pepper flakes to these little bite-size. This is an easy way to spice things up. Also, you can add your favorite steak sauce.
Leftover steak bites can be stored in an airtight container.
I used 2 pounds of sirloin steak for this recipe, but you can definitely use any other type of steak you would like. I have used rib eye steak with this recipe as well, and the recipe came out great either way.
This garlic butter steak bites recipe can easily become your favorite way to make a nice steak meal for your next special occasions, such as Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day. Lastly, make sure you add a delicious side to this meal. I love zucchini noodles. Well, until next time, folks.
