  • 3 pounds top sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon fresh cracked pepper
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup or 113g) unsalted butter, divided if necessary


  1. Season steak cubes with salt and pepper. Toss to coat evenly.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over high heat. (I prefer cast iron here, a 12-inch pan fits 1 steak cut into bites nicely.) If you are working in batches, use only HALF the stick of butter, or 1/4 cup. Reserve the rest for the next batch.

  3. Place steak cubes in the skillet in an even layer. Remember to work in batches if your pan isn't large enough! The butter should sizzle when you drop the first batch of meat into the skillet. That means it's hot enough to sear, and you definitely want to sear them.

  4. Cook for 1-2 minutes on one side and then flip and repeat with the other side. Meat should be brown and crispy on the outside and pink on the inside. (Cook longer for a more well-done steak bite).
