HOW TO MAKE CAJUN STEAK BITES

The trick to perfect steak bites, like any steak, is getting your pan or skillet nice and hot before searing. Sear in batches to prevent them from boiling instead of frying and get a nice crust on the edges. The meat stays irresistibly juicy and tender on the inside.

  • Toss steak pieces in Cajun seasoning.
  • Heat skillet or pan to just smoking hot.
  • For medium steak bites, sear for two minutes each side. For well done bites, sear 3-4 minutes each side.
  • Once the steak is cooked to your liking, reduce the heat and add butter and garlic to the hot pan.
  • Take the pan off the heat and toss your steak bites in the garlic butter. THAT’S IT!

The Cajun seasoning oozes into the butter, creating a mouthwatering sauce for your bites.

THE BEST STEAK FOR STEAK BITES

For our steak bites recipe, we use tender New York Strip Steak (also known as porterhouse steak). You could also use:

  • Sirloin steak
  • Rump
  • Tenderloin
  • Eye Fillet
  • Scott Fillet
  • Rib eye

TIPS

To prevent butter from burning from the start of cooking, you’re going to sear your steak bites in oil. Use canola, vegetable or coconut oil. We add the butter at the end purely to create that Cajun sauce.

If you have a cast iron skillet, use it for this recipe. Nothing beats steak cooked in cast iron! If you don’t have cast iron, use a good quality nonstick pan that doesn’t warp at high temperatures.

Stay close to your steak bites while they are in the pan. They only need 2 minutes each side. Use tongs to check on them and make sure they’re not overcooking or burning.
