Meat-eaters… this one is for you! We love steak here in The Chunky Chef household… even our youngest will go to town on a big ol’ steak.

This recipe is a fun way to make steak that will stretch a buck. You’ll need 1 1/2 lbs of steak, but that will make enough for 4 to 6 people!

You could also cut the steak into slightly smaller pieces and serve this up as an appetizer (just set out some toothpicks and let your guests go to town).

The homemade cajun seasoning is loaded with bold flavors, but not overly spicy, and it pairs so well with the rich flavor of steak.

Once the seasoned steak is seared and mostly cooked through, a glorious garlic butter sauce is made in the same skillet (hellllloooo amazing flavor!). Then the steak is added back to the skillet and tossed in the garlic butter… prepare for your mouth to water!

How to make cajun garlic butter steak bites?

This is just an overview; the full ingredients and directions are in the recipe card toward the bottom of this post.

step by step how to make cajun garlic butter steak bites
  1. Make seasoning. If you use a store-bought seasoning blend, skip this step.
  2. Season the steak.
  3. Sear. It’s important not to overcrowd the pan, otherwise the steak won’t really sear well.
  4. Remove to a plate. You may have to cook the steak in batches, so just transfer the cooked steak to a plate while the next batch is cooking.
  5. Make garlic butter. Make this sauce right in the same pan – that’s where a TON of flavor comes in.
  6. Return steak to pan. Just to really combine the seasoned steak with the garlic butter.

Variations of this recipe

  • Seasoning – while I really love the homemade seasoning blend used in this recipe, if you’d rather save a little time, a store-bought cajun blend will work just fine.
  • Garlic – this is nice and garlicky, but if you prefer a more subtle garlic flavor, use 2 garlic cloves.
  • Herbs – I really love using the fresh parsley as a garnish, since the freshness brings out the smoky spice, but it’s entirely optional and not necessary for this recipe.
  • Spicy – if you like things nice and spicy, add additional cayenne pepper, black pepper, or add some red pepper flakes.
  • Mild – feel free to reduce or omit the cayenne pepper to tame the heat level.

Making steak bites ahead of time

I think steak tastes best when made fresh, so for that reason, I don’t advise making this recipe entirely ahead of time.

However, you can certainly prep ahead!

How to prep ahead for this recipe:

  • Spices – the cajun seasonings can be combined and kept at room temperature until ready to use.
  • Steak – the steak can be sliced into bite-sized pieces and stored covered in the refrigerator until ready to use.

Storage

Leftover steak bites should be refrigerated in an airtight container and enjoyed within 4-5 days.

Reheat gently on the stovetop with a bit of butter, or in the microwave.
