How to Cook The Steak Bites

  • I used sirloin steak for this recipe. Other steak cuts like rib eye, new york strip can also work.
  • To get a crusty seared exterior, you need the pan to get very hot. A cast iron skillet works best.
  • The steak bites only take a few minutes to cook. Rather than constantly stirring the steak, they should not be flipped until they develop a nice sear.
  • Once the steak is almost cooked, they are tossed in a garlic butter sauce.

Seared steak bites are tossed in a flavorful garlic butter sauce and served with garlic butter flavored zucchini noodles. This is an easy dish that comes together in minutes and can be made ahead of time for weekly meal prep. 

Ingredients:

  • 3 tbsp 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
  • 1 tbsp parsley chopped
  • 4 large zucchini spiralized

Directions:

  1. In a small saucepan, and butter and garlic. Cook over low medium heat until butter is melted and garlic starts to brown and the flavor of the garlic is infused with the butter. Stir in the garlic powder and soy sauce. Taste and adjust as needed. Set aside.

  2. Add the canola oil to a large cast iron skillet and bring to high heat. When oil is hot, add in the steak.

  3. 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). 

  4. 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.
  5. Remove steak from pan and divide into meal prep containers.
  6. Using the same pan (and keeping in any remaining sauces from the steak and sauce), add in the zucchini noodles and remaining garlic butter sauce. Stir zucchini noodles until they are fully cooked. Season with salt as needed. Drain water from zucchini noodles and then add to meal prep containers.

I use these Meal Prep Containers* and this spiralizer.

  1. What did you  use to make zucchini noodles?

  2. I made this tonight and it came out okay – probably because I used some short cuts and don’t have a cast iron skillet. I used 3 tbsp of margarine instead of butter, 3/4 tsp of garlic powder, and I used Shirataki noodles (4 carbs and 30 calories for the whole bag). I think my math was off and I should have done 3/4 tbsp of garlic powder because it came out not nearly garlicky enough. I ended up dumping some extra powder on the finished meal and the noodles were pretty tasteless but that could just be because of the kind of noodle.

    It came out to ~315 calories for 3.5 oz of steak and 56g of noodle. I should’ve bought more of the noodles but I went with one bag (which only has two servings, but I split it into 4 smaller servings) incase I didn’t like it lol. Next time I’ll try zucchini noodles, though I’ll probably buy them already prepared since, as you can probably tell, I’m a lazy cook lol.

    Thank you for this recipe!

    How do you reheat without over cooking the meat or zucchini?

  4. Do your zoodles get soggy at all the longer they’re in the fridge? I’ve read that tends to happen if they aren’t eaten within a day or two.

    • The zoodles do release some water when they are stored in the fridge but I haven’t noticed the amount increase significantly if it’s stored longer

  5. Do you keep these refrigerated, or can they be frozen?
