Ingredients
  

  • 2 pounds Sirloin Steak or NY Strip Steak, cut into cubes or bite sized pieces
  • 2 tbsp Cajun Seasoning or Creole Seasoning
  • 1 tsp Red Pepper Chili Flakes optional
  • 1 tsp Salt more or less to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper more or less to taste
  • 1 tbsp Canola Oil or any neutral high heat oil
  • 3 tbsp Butter or Ghee for a Keto substitute
  • 5 cloves Garlic minced
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Parsley Leaves chopped, optional

Instructions
 

  • Season steak bites with cajun (creole) seasoning, salt, black pepper, and red pepper flakes (optional), stir until well coated.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Pan sear steak bites in one layer, ensuring not to overcrowd until browned on all sides (be sure not to overcook your steak). You may need to work in batches depending on the size of your skillet. Once steak has browned, remove from skillet and set aside.
  • In the same skillet melt butter, and add minced garlic. Sauté for about 1 minute until softened and fragrant. Return steak back to skillet, and toss in garlic butter. Remove from heat, add in fresh parsley, toss well and serve!

Notes

What Steak to Buy - NY Strip or Sirloin Steak, Ribeye or Tenderloin work well.
Pan Sear – make sure you let your skillet or pan get real hot before searing. This will give a nice browned crust, as well as builds flavour and texture.
Work in Batches – pan sear steak in batches to prevent steak bites from boiling instead of frying. When tossing in the garlic butter, you combine all the steak – only if your skillet or pan allows.
See detailed notes above for additional tips.
