Garlic Butter Steak Bites with Zucchini Noodles
- 3 tbsp of butter
- 6 cloves garlic minced
- 1 tbsp low sodium soy sauce
- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tbsp canola oil or olive oil
- 1 lb sirloin steak cut into bite size pieces
- salt to taste
- pepper to taste
- 1 tbsp parsley chopped
- 4 large zucchini spiralized (in the form of noodles)
- In a small saucepan, add butter and minced garlic. Cook the butter over low medium heat until it is melted, and the garlic starts to brown. This will signal that the flavour of garlic is infused with the butter
- Stir in the garlic powder and soy sauce into the butter. Taste and adjust as needed. Set aside.
- Add the canola oil to a large cast iron skillet separately and bring to high heat.
- When oil is hot, add in the steak. Cook steak about 1-2 minutes on each side, letting them develop a golden sear before flipping them.
- Lightly season steak with salt as needed. (Keep in mind that the sauce will add sodium to the steak).
- When steak is almost finished cooking, pour two-thirds of the garlic butter sauce over the steak. Stir steak until it is cooked and evenly coated in sauce.
- Garnish with parsley.
- Using the same pan (to keep in any remaining sauces from the steak and sauce), add in the zucchini noodles and remaining garlic butter sauce for flavourful zoodles.
- Stir zucchini noodles until they are fully cooked.
- Season with salt as needed.
- Set the plate with a side of zucchini and your tender steak bites. Garnish with parsley and serve.
Chef’s Special Tips for this Garlic Butter Steak Bites with Zucchini Noodles dish
- Recommended cut of steak for this recipe is sirloin steak. You can also go for Rib Eye or New York strip cut as well.
- In case you prefer eating a crusted exterior of the steaks, always heat the pan at high heat. You can use iron skillets for this purpose as they work best for crusted steaks because of high heat property.
- The steak bites are small in size; hence they take only a few minutes to cook through. Avoid overcooking the steak bites by stirring them. The ideal steak sear will always come by cooking at one side properly, and then flipping to other side.
- Toss the Steak bites in the Garlic Butter Sauce only after they are cooked through.
