  1. This dish looks yummie! Question: Steak Bites… your receipes show what seems to be a pretty quick cook time for the steak. I tend to avoid steak because it can be tough or hard to chew. How can I prepare steak (and steak bites) so that they do indeed “melt in your mouth” and aren’t hard to chew? Is there some pre-prep procedure I could do?

      This is a great recipe but steak can be terribly expensive and tough or hard to chew if not cooked properly. So – I changed the cooking method and the steak to stew beef. I cooked it in my Power Pro XL Pressure cooker. I browned the potatoes and the beef in the butter. Then added the rest of the ingredients but I also added 1/4 cup of water with a 1 teaspoon of Better than Bouillon base mixed into it. Locked down the lid and cooked it for 5 minutes. Did a natureal release for 10 minutes. Scouped out the potatoes and meat and then poured the remaining sauce over it. Yum and the beef was very tender.

    Hi, I just made this tonight…thank you for a delicious recipe! It’s super easy to make for a weeknight meal. The sirloin and potatoes cook quickly so just make sure to stay on top of that. I made a side of roasted brussel sprouts with bacon to complete the meal.

First, if I decided. to grill them In foil, also should ! Spray the foil with before adding potatoes? Also, could I put a couple corn on the cobs on the grill or carrots and corn the oven packets?
    Thank you, Michele

    Wow! This was a very fine meal. My only adjustment was to steam the potatoes for 5 minutes. I don’t have the best of luck cooking raw potatoes in a skillet without them falling apart. My husband is already looking forward to leftovers and I plan to make these for company soon. Thanks for the FABULOUS recipe.

  5. I made this last weekend and it was so fast and easy to make! I made it in a regular pan since I don’t have a cast iron and it cooked up just fine! Delicious! Definitely going in my recipe box.

  6. We had this for dinner tonight. YUM!!! It did take closer to 25 minutes for the potatoes to cook. I also added another minced clove of garlic to the final tablespoon of butter that’s used to cook the steak. Excellent flavors! We had a salad and rolls. I saved a piece of my roll to absorb the garlic butter that was left on my plate. Again, YUM!!

  7. Do you have a recommendation for a site that shows how to cut steak into bites because like another person said I have also had problems with steak being way too chewy to the point of impossible and I don’t think any marinade is going to make that big of a difference? I’m certainly willing to be proved wrong. Any suggestions ?

      To tenderize the steaks I put them in my Instapot after cubing them up and give them a 15 min pressure cook. This makes this recipe absolutely amazing. I have a 93 yrs old granni who has a hard time chewing meat and this is now her favorite dish.

      1. @KariJo did you do this instead of cooking on the skillet, or did you pressure cook them first and then add them to the skillet?

        1. @karijo what do you set your instapot on for the steak? Also then after you cook the steak in the instapot then you added it to the potatoes? I have just the regular nothing fancy instapot and not familiar with it much…lol… thank you so much 😊 in advance.

  8. I used cauliflower instead of potatoes because I didn’t feel like going out to get potatoes and I already had cauliflower. It was super yummy.

  9. This was really good, I added and onion and red bell pepper just for color, was quick and easy to make.

  10. Just made this with ribeye and it was delicious. Marinated the meat in Worcester sauce for a few hours, drained and patted it dry before cubing. And lots of extra butter

  11. This was yummy and fast , made it for my anniversary dinner at home ❤️
    I do think next time I will add the herbs and garlic toward the end of cooking so they don’t overcook or scorch . I might also parboil the potatoes prior to sautéing .
