The real gem of this recipe isn’t just the delicious, tender beef cubes of sirloin steak, but the garlic steak butter sauce. You can easily make the garlic butter sauce for steak using just a few ingredients that you may even already have on hand.
1/2 cup soy sauce
1/3 cup olive oil
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 Tablespoons dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried parsley
1 teaspoon black pepper
1-1/2 lbs. flat iron or top sirloin steak, cut in 1-inch pieces
1-Place all ingredients, except steak, in a large ziplock baggie. Stir with a spoon to combine.
2-Drop steak pieces in and seal shut. Shake gently to coat steak entirely in marinade. Place bag in refrigerator to marinate for at least 3 hours or up to 24.
3-Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Heat skillet until it’s very hot. Remove steak pieces from marinade using a slotted spoon and place in hot skillet. Discard marinade. Cook steak according to your desired temperature. We like medium-well so I cooked ours for about 3 minutes.
4-Serve warm and enjoy!
* If you are sensitive to salt, you may want to use low-sodium soy sauce.
* The marinating time is important to how tender the meat is when cooked, but do not feel as if you must leave it overnight. Marinating causes the muscle fibers to break down which makes the beef more and more tender the longer it marinates.
