I just decided to stick with the Steak Bites …. it describes them perfectly!
I love steak. And would love to eat it daily, but alas, I’m on a mission to live a little more Frugal and pay off some debt and the mortgage as soon as possible, so I figured, bits of steak are better than NO steak … right?
Oh, yeah, there’s the Pantry Challenge too … so we pretty much are using what we have, which luckily, consists of some bits of steak!
This is a quick and easy set up … and I can’t wait to do it again!
1 1/2 pounds or so of steak. I used a flat iron steak as that’s what I had in the freezer
2 tbs of ghee. Yes, I have ghee. If you don’t, you can use butter …
Steak seasoning (I used this Montreal Steak Seasoning that I’ve had like forever … it’s being used a lot in the past few weeks!)
Cut your steak in to cubes, about 1 inch or so. Toss the cubes in a bowl and season generously with the seasoning, salt and pepper.
Turn on your stove vent and maybe crack a window open.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add ghee or butter. Melt, swirl around the pan and add half the meat cubes.
Let cook for about 2 minutes and then flip all the pieces over quickly. Allow to cook til desired doneness and move them to a bowl or serving platter. Repeat with balance of the steak bits … you should NOT need more ghee or butter but if you do, add a little more.
Stick a few random toothpicks in a couple of pieces if desired and serve up family style.
*Note – I was serving potato soup alongside. I also had rice cooking in the rice cooker and some black beans simmering on the stove. The kids (all 4) opted to make burritos with a tortilla wrap, rice, black beans, green onions and cheese (for the soup) and the steak bits … I’m glad they did because I was a little apprehensive about not having enough beef to go around! So thankful that my kids are innovative!
