I'm excited to share a recipe that strikes the perfect balance between indulgence and health: Garlic Butter Steak Bites. With the holiday season approaching, this dish is an ideal choice for those seeking a delicious yet health-conscious appetizer.

This recipe combines sirloin steak, a lean protein source, with the rich flavours of garlic and butter. While butter is often seen as a treat ingredient, it can be part of a balanced diet when used in moderation. It adds a depth of flavour to the steak bites, making them a real crowd-pleaser. Plus, the garlic isn't just for taste; it's known for its health benefits, such as boosting the immune system and providing antioxidants.

So, grab your apron and let's get cooking!

Garlic Butter Steak Bites

(about 6-8 people as part of an appetizer table)


• 1 lb sirloin steak, cut into small cubes
• 2 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 cloves garlic, minced
• 3 tablespoons butter
• Salt and pepper, to taste
• Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
• Red chili flakes (for garnish)


1. Pat the steak cubes dry with paper towels. This helps in getting a good sear. Season them generously with salt and pepper.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak bites in a single layer, making sure not to overcrowd the pan. You might need to do this in batches. Sear the steak bites for about 2-3 minutes, turning them midway until they're nicely browned on all sides. Once cooked, transfer them to a plate.
3. In the same skillet, lower the heat to medium. Add the butter and minced garlic. Sauté the garlic for about 1 minute until fragrant but not browned.
4. Return the steak bites to the skillet. Stir well to coat the steak in the garlic butter sauce. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes.
5. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and red chili flakes. Serve hot.

These Garlic Butter Steak Bites are a testament to the idea that healthy eating can be both delicious and satisfying. The combination of lean protein, heart-healthy olive oil, and a touch of butter makes this dish a balanced choice for your holiday table. It's a simple yet elegant appetizer that's sure to impress.
