Sirloin steak is one of the most classic and delicious meats to enjoy. A top sirloin, taken from the upper portion of the cut, is tender, lean and lends itself well to being grilled.
There’s nothing better than a good grilled steak, but I also love to try meat in various ways, especially when it’s on sale, like this week at Brookshire’s.
Steak bites are a good alternative. You don’t mess with the integrity of the meat, but you get a different kind of meal out of a good cut of steak!
This would be delicious served with rice or over a baked potato with a huge green salad. This is based on a Pioneer Woman recipe; I just added the garlic because everything tastes better with garlic.
1 lb top sirloin steak
1 tsp each sea salt and fresh ground black pepper
4 Tbs butter
2 cloves garlic, minced
Trim off the excess fat from the meat, and then cut cubes about 1 inch in size.
Sprinkle with sea salt and freshly ground pepper.
Heat a skillet (preferably cast iron) over medium-high to high heat. As the pan heats, add about 2 tablespoons butter to the skillet. Allow the butter to melt and then get very brown before you add the meat. Add the garlic.
Place some of the meat in the pan in a single layer. It should sizzle loudly when it hits the pan. If it doesn’t, the pan isn’t hot enough. Don’t stir or disrupt the meat for 30 to 45 seconds. You want it to sizzle and brown on one side. Scoop as many steak bites as you can with your spatula and flip them over. Repeat until all the meat is turned. Cook for an additional 30 to 45 seconds, just long enough to sear the outside of the meat but NOT cook the inside.
Remove the meat to a clean plate. Add a little more butter to the pan and repeat the cooking process with the next batch just as before. Lastly, when all the meat is nicely browned and removed to the plate, pour all that browned/blackened butter all over the meat.
