Get ready for a delicious recipe: Garlic butter steak bites!

In almost every post I write, you’ll hear me talk about time, and our lack of it lately. We bought a house in a neighborhood we love (#wemissthecity), but it’s far from our jobs, so we spend A LOT of time commuting.

B and I are getting better about cooking healthier meals for ourselves at home. I recently stumbled across ButcherBox and decided to give it a try.

We buy most of our meats from Whole Foods or HEB, but having meats delivered straight to our home just seemed like a better option.

I was inspired by some beautiful steaks in the box, and I whipped up garlic butter steak bites. In less than 20 minutes.

They are really delicious. If you’re a garlic fan, you’re going to love these. They get a nice char from the high heat of the pan. I also enjoy the depth of the garlic flavor. It’s powerful without being overwhelming.

What are the ingredients for Garlic Butter Steak Bites?

I love these because they’re versatile. They include all of the usual suspects for steak: salt, pepper, butter fresh garlic, and powdered garlic.

You could add other ingredients you love, like rosemary. But, I wanted that garlicky flavor to stand out, and it sure does.

What temperature should I cook the steak?

This is up to you. I cooked our steaks to medium, let them rest, and then let it simmer in the garlic butter sauce for 2 minutes.

That brought the temp up to medium-well, but our ribeye was still tender, and not a chewy mess. Go with an internal temp your comfortable with and use a meat thermometer.

How do I make these?

Begin by bringing your steak close to room temperature. Note: You want to do this because you want the steak to cook evenly across the board – no cold spots for uneven cooking.

Heat your pan to high heat.

While the pan is getting hot, mince garlic. and set aside.

Rub your steak with salt, garlic powder.

Add butter and garlic to your hot pan. Then, lay the steaks down, building a crust on the outside. Sear the steak on all sides, and pull it off of the stove to rest. (Measure the internal temp with a meat thermometer, so you know where you’re at.

While the steaks rest, turn your heat down to medium-low heat add two tablespoons of butter and minced garlic to a pan.

Keep stirring until the garlic starts to brown.

Add your steak back into the pan, and toss it in the butter and garlic mixture for 1-2 minutes.

Pull the garlic steak bites out, let them rest again (2-3 minutes), and enjoy.
