Garlic Butter Steak Bites Recipe

Deliciously juicy and tender, these garlic butter steak bites are perfect for a quick and easy dinner or a savory appetizer. They are cooked to perfection in a garlic butter sauce that adds incredible flavor to every bite.


  • 1 lb (450g) sirloin steak or ribeye, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme)
  • 1 teaspoon fresh rosemary, chopped (or 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional, for garnish)


  1. Prepare the Steak:
  • Pat the steak pieces dry with paper towels. This ensures a good sear.
  • Season the steak pieces generously with salt and pepper on all sides.
  1. Heat the Pan:
  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot and shimmering.
  1. Sear the Steak Bites:
  • Add the steak pieces in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. Sear for about 2-3 minutes on each side until they develop a nice crust and are cooked to your desired doneness (for medium-rare, cook to an internal temperature of 135°F or 57°C).
  • Remove the steak bites from the skillet and set them aside on a plate.
  1. Make the Garlic Butter Sauce:
  • In the same skillet, reduce the heat to medium and add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the minced garlic.
  • Sauté the garlic for about 1 minute until fragrant, being careful not to burn it.
  1. Combine and Serve:
  • Return the steak bites to the skillet, and toss them in the garlic butter sauce.
  • Sprinkle the chopped thyme and rosemary over the steak bites, stirring to combine.
  • Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes to let the flavors meld together.
  1. Garnish and Serve:
  • Remove from heat and garnish with fresh parsley if desired.
  • Serve immediately, either on their own or with your favorite side dishes like mashed potatoes, steamed vegetables, or a crisp salad.

Enjoy your mouthwatering garlic butter steak bites!
