Dinner at the Zoo: Steak Bites with Garlic Butter

I feel like steak and potatoes in the quintessential comfort dinner.  It's definitely high on the list with just about every guy I've ever known.  So when I found a nice piece of sirloin, I decided the best thing to do was to cook it simply, and just let the meaty goodness shine.  This is a perfect application if it's hot and late and you don't want to get the grill cranking.

Note: If you don't have sirloin, I'm sure you could use some ribeye or just about any other steak you can think of.

Steak Bites with Garlic Butter
From Dinner at the Zoo blog

1¼ pounds sirloin steak, cut into small cubes
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons minced garlic
Salt and pepper to taste
1 tablespoon minced parsley

Heat the olive oil in a large pan over high heat. Season the steak with salt and pepper to taste.

Place the steak in the pan in a single layer; you may have to work in batches depending on the size of your pan. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Repeat with remaining meat, if needed.

Add the butter and garlic to the pan; cook for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring to coat the meat in the sauce.
Sprinkle with parsley and serve.

Makes 4 servings
