Buttered Steak Bites with Mushrooms

From the very first bite, these Buttered Steak Bites and Mushrooms became an instant favorite for my whole family. This is the most tender steak you can imagine and my whole family goes nuts for it.

I have two boys who aren’t the biggest fans of steak. (Yes, I know, it’s hard to imagine!) However, they dive right into these steak bites and always ask for seconds.

Served with Salt Potatoes and Honey Sriracha Roasted Broccoli, I love every bite of this meal.

Bite-size pieces of tender steak are seared in a hot skillet just for a couple minutes until each bite is crisply browned outside and juicy inside.

Then the mushrooms are seared in the same pan to absorb all of that delicious buttery flavor left in the pan.

How To Cook Steak Bites

The goal when cooking steak bites is to create a crisply browned outside and a lovely pink and juicy center for each piece of meat.

As the meat is cooking, if a piece is slightly larger and has a side that looks like it hasn’t browned, flip to that side again for 20-30 seconds. Take caution not to overcook the steak.

Steak Bites with Mushrooms are a quick dinner favorite.

Steak Bites and Mushrooms

  1. Cut the steak into bite-size pieces, about 1/2″ – 3/4″ in size. Sprinkle the meat generously with 3/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Heat a heavy, flat bottomed stainless skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter. When the butter has melted, swirl to coat the pan. Add about a third of the meat and spread it across the pan.
  2. Cook for 1 minute and then use a large spatula to flip the pieces over. Cook 1 more minute. Use a spatula to remove the meat to a plate and then repeat with the second batch of meat pieces.
  3. Add an additional tablespoon of butter to the skillet. The entire cooking process for the meat should only take a few minutes total. When the meat has finished cooking, loosely tent foil over the cooked steak bites on the plate.
  4. Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter to the hot skillet and toss the mushrooms in the butter. Sprinkle with the remaining salt and let the mushrooms cook without stirring for 2-3 minutes until browned. Stir and let cook a few more minutes until soft. Add the mushrooms and the buttery pan drippings to the plate with the steak bites. Serve hot.
