Garlic Butter Herb Steak Bites with Potatoes

My steak-loving son is always begging for steak every single week. He loves steak and potatoes, and I love easy meals, so it is a win-win situation! This meal is so delicious, though, that everyone loves it, even those who normally prefer chicken or pork.

These small steak bites are covered with a delicious buttery garlic herb sauce that brings the most delicious flavor. It makes my mouth water just thinking about it! Plus, this is a one-skillet meal which means that since everything is cooked in the same pan, you get a blend of all of the flavors all at once. Trust me because this isn’t a recipe that you want to miss!

Ingredients in Steak Bites

These garlic butter herb steak bites pack a punch with the flavor, and yet achieving that delicious taste is so easy! Check out the recipe card at the bottom of the post for all of the exact measurements.

  • Olive Oil: You will cook the steak and potatoes in this.
  • Butter: I used unsalted butter in this recipe.
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes: Once you slice these up into quarters, then they will be the perfect size to complement the steak bites.
  • Garlic Cloves: You can use minced garlic if you don’t have fresh garlic cloves on hand. 1/2 teaspoon equals about 1 clove of garlic.
  • Dried Thyme, Rosemary, and Oregano: These dried herbs bring together a delicious aroma of flavors.
  • Sirloin Steaks: The better the cut of steak, the better your meat will turn out!
  • Salt and Pepper: These enhance all of the flavors in the steak bites.

Let’s Make Garlic Herb Butter Steak Bites

  1. Cook the Potatoes: Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat and then add olive oil and butter, potatoes, garlic, thyme, rosemary, and oregano. Cook for about 3 minutes, stir, and cook an additional 3 minutes until fork tender. Remove and set aside on a plate.
  2. Add Steak: Turn the skillet to high heat. Add the steak bites. Let the steak sear for a minute, and then continue to stir the steak until they are golden brown.
  3. Garnish: Top the steak with fresh chopped herbs (optional).

Do I have to use Sirloin Steak?

No! You can use other steaks in this garlic herb and butter steak bite recipe. You can substitute with a tenderloin, or New York strip steak.

Storing Leftovers

These garlic herb and butter steak bites make delicious leftovers, and I love having them for lunch or dinner the next day! You can store leftover steak bites in an airtight container in your fridge for 2-3 days. Then, when you are ready to reheat them, cook them in a skillet on low until they are heated through.

    1. Make some seitan and chop it up? Cook the same way as you would the steak. There are plenty of videos on youtube about how to make/season seitan if you do not know about it and are interested. It’s a wonderful meat substitute texture-wise but definitely needs seasoned correctly or it is bland 🙂

  1. 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

    1. Hi Koni!
      You are welcome to use either slice type. Whichever you prefer. Thanks for selecting one of my recipes to try! Thanks for follow along with me!!

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

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

      2. @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.

      3. 5 stars
        This is the only way I will every cook this recipe and I have and it’s so very tender and flavorful!!!
