  • Sirloin Steak: Cut into 2-inch cubes.
  • Salt & Black Pepper
  • Paprika, Garlic Powder, And Italian Seasoning: A mix of herbs that add depth and character to the steak bites.
  • Vegetable Oil: Used for searing the steak cubes.

How To Make Steak Bites With Mushrooms

An easy and quick dinner recipe with seared Steak Bites and tender mushrooms sautéed in our favorite garlic butter sauce. The butter adds richness and keeps those steak bites juicy with the added flavors of seasonings and garlic.

  1. Season the steak bites with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and Italian Seasoning.
  2. Heat the oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan or cast iron skillet – make sure the oil is hot before adding in the steak bites.
  3. Sear steak bites for a minute; flip over and add butter and garlic. Continue to cook for a minute longer, or until done. The steak bites should not take longer than 2 to 3 minutes to cook through. If you cook them too long, they will be very tough and chewy.
  4. Transfer steak bites to a plate and set aside.
  5. Add mushrooms to the same skillet and cook for 3 minutes. Stir in butter and more garlic and continue to sauté until done.
  6. Stir steak bites and drippings back into the skillet; cook for 30 seconds or until heated through. Serve.

Tips For Making The Best Steak Bites

  • Steak Selection: While Sirloin is recommended, feel free to substitute with Rib Eye, New York Strip, or Tenderloin based on personal preference or availability. The quality of the steak plays a pivotal role in the outcome.
  • Skillet Choice: A cast-iron skillet retains heat well and provides a consistent sear, but if you don’t have one, any heavy-bottomed pan will do.
  • Don’t Overcrowd: When searing the steak bites, ensure they are in a single layer with space between them. Overcrowding the pan can cause the steak to steam rather than sear.
  • Temperature Matters: Steaks should sizzle instantly when placed in the skillet. If not, the skillet may not be hot enough.

Serving Suggestions

  • Store the steak bites in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. For best results, reheat in a skillet over medium heat until warmed through.

  • Place steak cubes in a mixing bowl; season with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, and Italian Seasoning. Toss to combine.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large cast iron skillet or a heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak bites to the hot skillet in a single layer. If it doesn't sizzle, the skillet is not hot enough.
  • Sear the steak bites for 1 minute – do not move them around. Using tongs or a spatula, flip the steak bites over; add 2 tablespoons butter and stir in half of the minced garlic. Continue to cook for 1 to 2 more minutes or until the steak is done. Do not overcook the steak.
  • Transfer the steak bites to a plate and keep them covered.
  • Add remaining vegetable oil to the skillet and heat over medium-high heat. Stir in the sliced mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 3 minutes, or until browned.
  • Add remaining butter and stir in the rest of the garlic; let cook for 2 to 3 more minutes or until soft. Stir the steak and drippings back into the skillet and cook for 30 more seconds or until heated through.
  • Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.


  • Skillet Choice: A cast-iron skillet retains heat well and provides a consistent sear, but if you don’t have one, any heavy-bottomed pan will do. If your skillet isn’t big enough, you may have to cook the steak bites in 2 to 3 batches.
  • Steak: If you can’t find/don’t have Sirloin Steak, you can also use Rib Eye, New York Strip, or Tenderloin Steak.
  • Seasonings: While the recipe provides specific seasonings, feel free to adjust or add according to what you like.
  • Storing Leftovers: If you have any leftovers, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat gently to avoid overcooking the steak.

    Amazing!!!! I bookmarked this recipe, delicious and easy!

  4. LMSCSM says:

    Excellent flavors! Terrific instructions. I discovered year old filet mignon in our freezer…..used this recipe and it was fantastic. Of course, I added extra garlic. The sauce/glaze made me wish I’d served bread to soak up every little bit.

    1. Katerina Petrovska says:

      That’s great! I’m very glad you enjoyed it! Thank YOU! 🙂

  5. Catherine says:

    Loved it. Great recipe

  6. Michelle says:

    Seriously all of my favorite things in a pan! Thanks for sharing!

  7. Rick says:

    I’d prefer to cook the sirloin whole with the spices THEN cut into bites. Much easier to do and able to cook med rare.

    1. Dianna says:

      I like your idea, Rick! It would eliminate the concern of overcooking the meat. I think I will try that and maybe double the sauce.
