15-Minute Heavenly Steak Bites
When I call this heavenly, I mean it—this dish is pure indulgence. One bite, and you’ll wish you doubled the recipe. Sure, it’s a lot of butter . . . but it’s worth it! In fact, I suggest buying a high-quality Irish-style or grass-fed butter for this. Grass-fed butter is loaded with healthy fats and has much more flavor than your standard butter, so this is one occasion where it’s really worth the extra cost. And because this dish is super low-carb, treat yourself to one of the most delicious meals ever. Just don’t hold back on the garlic (and make sure you have mints nearby).

- 1 lb (454 g) top sirloin steak (see Pro Tip)
- 1 tablespoon (15 ml) avocado oil
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper
- 1/4 cup (57 g) salted Irish-style butter
- 6 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 sprig fresh rosemary
- 1 tablespoon (6 g) grated Parmesan cheese
Cut the steak into ½-inch (1.3-cm) cubes, removing any large pieces of fat. Place a large (12-inch [30-cm]) skillet over high heat and add the avocado oil. Meanwhile, toss the steak bites in the salt and pepper until evenly coated. When the oil is smoking hot, place the steak bites into the oil in an even layer. Without moving them, let the steak sear for 1 minute on the first side. Flip over each piece individually to another side with tongs, and sear for 1 minute. Repeat this step on a third side, until the total cooking time has been 3 minutes, and your steak bites have some noticeable brown edges.
Note: If you’re making a double batch of this, you still want to sear the steak in two batches to ensure proper browning of the meat.
Take the bites out of the pan and set them aside to rest. Place the same pan back over medium heat and add the butter. As soon as the butter is mostly melted, add the minced garlic and rosemary sprig. Let the garlic sauté for 2 minutes, or until it’s just turning golden. Turn off the heat and put the steak bites back into the pan, along with the Parmesan. Toss everything together and serve family-style in the pan while it’s hot and bubbly.
It’s tough to make this recipe any more delectable, but for a real treat, try making this with filet mignon instead of sirloin. The filet will be incredibly tender and luxurious . . . sounds like a date night to me!
