HOW TO MAKE HONEY GARLIC STEAK BITES
We are going to start with making our honey garlic sauce: in a small mixing bowl you will want to combine water, low sodium soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, dried oregano, and cornstarch.
Next, you are going to heat up a cast iron skillet until it is smoking hot. Literally smoking hot. The best sizzle for these steak bites can only happen if your skillet is really hot.
Season the steak bites however you like, but I suggest to use some salt and pepper, plus sweet paprika. If not using low sodium soy sauce, I advise not to salt the steak at all.
Add steak bites to the hot oiled skillet and sear for only a few minutes. TIP: DO NOT crowd the pan – cook the steak bites in 2 batches.
Place all steak bites back in the pan and stir in the honey garlic sauce. Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes, or until sauce thickens.
Remove from heat; transfer to a serving plate, drizzle the pan sauce over your steak, garnish with sesame seeds and serve.
Drizzle the sauce over some rice, or broccoli, or mashed potatoes, too! YUM!
CAN I MAKE STEAK BITES AHEAD OF TIME?
The steak bites are really good when reheated, but I wouldn’t make them hours ahead of time. What you can do is prepare the sauce a day or two ahead and just keep it in the fridge until ready to use.
Same with the steak; cut it up in cubes and keep in the fridge for a day. Take out from fridge and let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes before using.
Also, to keep the steak bites warm, cover them with aluminum foil until ready to serve.
