Steak vs. steak bites
When I first started recipe developing for these garlic herb steak bites, I was determined to figure out what was easier: cooking steak or cooking steak bites?
Full disclosure, I'm not a pro with steak. I've had my fair share of dinner parties where I totally destroyed the steak.
Now that I've learned about steak bites, I'm never going back.
They're perfectly sized bites of steak (no heavy duty steak knives necessary), easy to portion out to many guests, and basically fool-proof to make!
How to make them
One thing that doesn't change whether you're making steak or steak bites, you need a good quality frying pan. I like to use this All Clad frying pan but truly, any good cast iron or stainless steel pan will work.
Once you've got a good pan warming up with your oil, it's all about browning your steak bites on every side.
Be patient here, they will take a minute or two on each side.
After that, we're draining any excess oil, and adding allll the goodies to our pan. I'm talking butter, fresh garlic and herbs. And that's it!
If #quarantinelife has rendered you fresh herb-less, worry not. I used FROZEN cilantro and FROZEN parsley. You could totally get away with using canned, pre-minced garlic too.
Steak goes well with...
As much as I'm sure we'd all enjoy eating a bowl of steak bites as is, it's probably best to incorporate some veggies in the meal.
