These steak bites only take about 5 minutes to make in a skillet on your stovetop. Serve them over white rice, brown rice, or cauliflower rice to absorb all of the steak juices and garlic butter. Mashed potatoes are a nice option, too!
A cast iron skillet is best, but any pan will work.
Just about any boneless steak will do for this recipe including sirloin, rib eye, tenderloin, or anything else you can get at a decent price. You just want something that is easy to cut into small bite-sized pieces without a bunch of fat that needs to be trimmed off.
If you’re looking for healthy vegetable side dishes, frozen cauliflower rice is such a quick and easy option. It only takes 5 minutes to heat it up in your microwave with zero effort, and it pairs especially well with these juicy steak bites.

- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 1 pound sirloin steak (or rib eye, strip loin or tenderloin)
- 4 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp chopped garlic (heaping)
- salt & pepper (to taste)
- 1 (10oz) bag frozen cauliflower rice (optional)
Cut the steak into bite-size pieces and season with salt and pepper.
Add the olive oil to a large skillet over high heat. Once the pan is very hot, add the steak pieces to it and let them sit for about 2 minutes before stirring so that you get a good sear.
Stir and continue cooking for another 1-3 minutes or until the steak is done to your liking.
Transfer the steak bites to a bowl and turn your skillet down to medium heat. Add the butter to the pan and allow it to melt. Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds while stirring.
Pour the garlic butter over the steak bites and mix well.
Serve over cauliflower rice and enjoy!
