Garlic Butter Steak Bites with Creamy Mustard Dipping Sauce are the perfect appetizer to serve at your next party or serve them up for dinner with a couple sides. The best part? They’ll be on your table in under 15 minutes! 

These steak bites are quickly going to become one of your favorite recipes. Why? 

  • They’re buttery. 
  • They’re garlicky. 
  • They cook in just 15 minutes. 
  • They’re amazing. 

Steak Bites Ingredients

You only need 5 ingredients to make these delicious, tender bites: 

  1. Steak
  2. Butter
  3. Olive Oil
  4. Garlic
  5. Parsley

Best Steak for Steak Bites

  • I like to use top sirloin in this recipe since it cooks up tender, is widely available and is affordable. You could also use tenderloin, rib eye, or strip steak. Steak bites in skillet after cooking but not yet topped with parsley.

How to Make Steak Bites

  • Get your skillet super hot. Add olive oil and heat over high heat until a drop of water into the skillet sizzles immediately. 
  • Don’t crowd your skillet. I like to use my largest skillet for this recipe. If you find that you cannot fit all the steak bites in the skillet without them touching each other, you should cook them in batches. If the bites are too close together, they will steam rather than get that golden crust that we really want here. 
  • Add butter and garlic. Once the steak is cooked, turn the heat down to medium-low (so the garlic won’t burn) and add the butter and garlic. Stir to coat the steak bites in the butter sauce and serve with a sprinkling of parsley and the creamy mustard sauce.

Steak Bites Dipping Sauce: 

The sauce for these Garlic Butter Steak Bites takes just four ingredients:

  1. Sour Cream
  2. Mustard
  3. Hot Sauce
  4. Garlic

But, if you want to make things even easier, you could just mix up the mustard with a bit of sour cream (or mayonnaise) and season it with salt and pepper.

I like to use Maille Old Style Mustard in this recipe. It’s flecked with whole mustard seeds that pop on your tongue when you bite into them. It’s the perfect ingredient to elevate a simple appetizer with a gourmet touch. 

By adding a spoonful of it to this creamy sauce, it elevates the flavor so much and makes for the most delicious, rich & tangy sauce that’s just perfect paired with these bites.  

What to Serve with Steak Bites

Wine Pairings for Steak:

  • A big, bold hearty red wine makes a great match for these bites – Try a Cabernet, Syrah or Zinfandel.
