Here ishow to make Tangy Garlic Sirloin Steak Bites. They are sauted on the stove in olive oil and minced garlic, with freshly ground black pepper. They are the *best*! Even your kids will love these!


1.5 pounds boneless top sirloin steak; (You may substitute strip steak or ribeye steak)
1 meat tenderizer; to taste
ground black pepper; to taste
3 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Original recipe makes 2



With kitchen shears, trim the steak of excess fat, gristle, and other unwanted materials. Chop the cleaned steak into about 3/4-inch cubes, and place them in a small to medium bowl. Sprinkle meat tenderizer over the steak to taste. (The meat tenderizer will provide the salt for the steak.) Now, grind some fresh peppercorns over the steak. (Or, you may just sprinkle the steak with regular ground black pepper.) Now, add 3 teaspoons of minced, bottled garlic. Stir the steak mixture around to coat all sides of the steak with the meat tenderizer, pepper, and garlic. Heat 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil in a deep frying pan on the stove. Add the steak mixture, and start stirring immediately. Continue to cook and stir. You will notice that the mixture becomes soupy, because the juices of the meat are being cooked out. Continue to cook and stir, until the mixture is no longer soupy, but there is a little grease in the bottom of the skillet, and all steak pieces are brown and crusty. (This is what produces the wonderful tangy flavor, but the steak will remain tender, not tough at all.) It took me about 12 minutes to cook the steak bites to perfection. Remove the steak bites from the skillet to a tray that is covered with paper toweling to drain. Then, move immediately to your serving platter or bowl. Serve while hot. You will not need steak sauce; it will be overpowered by the zest of the steak. This is a splendid recipe! Don't miss our on it!!!

I tried this and it didn't have much flavor. Ended up using it for steak quesadilla so I could add flavor. Not sure what I did wrong.
