A Quick and Easy Steak Dinner Idea

Steak bites and Yukon gold potatoes, they go together like peanut butter and jelly, coffee and cream, and, well – meat and potatoes! But, this isn’t your average meat and potatoes meal. This meal is loaded with pops of deep and fresh flavor and the entire meal cooks up in less than 30 minutes.

All I have to say is – steak marinated in soy sauce and hot sauce!?! WHAT? But trust me, it’s so good. Add the herbed potatoes cooked in the same skillet and you’ve got a meal like nothing you’ve ever tried before!

What Are Steak Bites?

Steak bites are bite-sized pieces of cubed steak. You could use just about any type of steak for this. I really like my steak bites to be tender and juicy, so I use flank steak.

Flank steak comes from the flank of the cow, below the loin and sirloin. In your grocery store, you might find flank steak labeled London broil or jiffy steak. It’s most well known for its flavor and texture.

How to Make Steak Bites with Potatoes

  4. Remove potatoes from the skillet and set aside.
  5. Sauce: Set the skillet back over medium heat and add the remaining butter. Allow it to melt.
  6. Add the garlic to the skillet and Italian seasoning. Stir and cook for 20 seconds, or until fragrant.

Tips for Juicy Steak Bites

If you want to make sure your steak bites are as juicy as possible, make sure you follow these easy tips.

  • If you can’t find a flank steak, feel free to swap it for sirloin, rib eye, tenderloin, or a New York strip steak.
  • When cubing your flank steak, make sure to cut against the grain. This will make each bite of steak super tender.
  • Don’t skip the marinade. Marinating steak helps to tenderize the meat.
  • Keep a close eye once you add the steak bites. They cook quickly and you don’t want them to be overcooked.

Serving Suggestions

What I love about this meal is that it’s almost a whole meal in one skillet. All it’s missing is some green. You’ve got two options here. Cook up an easy green veggie side, like roasted green beans, grilled asparagus, or a mixed veggie medley.

Or, you could simply serve your steak bites and potatoes with a large family style side salad. A super simple and fully balanced dinner!

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

  • Before storing your leftovers, let them come to room temperature. Then place the leftovers into an airtight container. You can then store them in your fridge for about 5 days, or your freezer for 3 months.
  • To reheat, add everything to a skillet over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until the steak and potatoes are heated through. If it’s become too dry, you can add a bit more soy sauce or a splash of beef broth.

    Made this last night. Beyond delicious! We loved it. I used a small filet mignon steak and also added a little sliced onion with the potatoes. Cut down on the hot sauce a bit. All in all an excellent recipe we will repeat often.
