Skillet Steak Bites with Mushrooms - Our quick and easy Skillet Steak Bites recipe is perfect for feeding the family and sharing at parties. These steak bites with mushrooms are flavorful and rich... and low-carb!
Cut the sirloin steak into 1 ¼ inch bite-size pieces. Cut the mushrooms in half and mince the garlic. Sprinkle the steak pieces generously with salt and pepper.
Set an extra-large skillet (preferably cast iron) over high heat. Add the oil and swirl around the pan. Once hot, add the steak pieces. Sear the steak bites for 4 minutes, stirring every minute to brown on all sides. Then remove the steak bites from the pan and place on a plate.
Add the butter, garlic, and mushrooms to the skillet. Sauté for 1-2 minutes. Then add the sherry, beef base, and dried thyme. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Sauté the mushrooms for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until they are caramelized on the bottom and most of the liquid has evaporated.
Stir in the steak bites in their juices and chopped parsley.
Toss and sauté for another 1-2 minutes to finish cooking the steak.
Serve warm as-is or with a side of dressing for dipping.
You can use other cuts of steak, but sirloin in great for this recipe because it’s lean, inexpensive, and a great platform for seasoning.
