What’s the best steak to use?

Because the steak is meant to cook quickly, it’s best to choose a tender cut. I like to use sirloin, but you can also use beef tenderloin (filet mignon), New York strip steak or stir fry meat. It’s best to avoid tougher cuts like skirt and flank steak.

What are the best potatoes to use?

I like to use Yukon Gold for this recipe. They hold their shape well, but are moderately starchy so that they still get soft and fluffy in the middle. It’s best to avoid Russet potatoes as these are too starchy and can fall apart.

Waxy potatoes like reds or fingerlings, will work well in this recipe.

What do you serve this with?

These garlic steak bites are great to serve with your favorite veggies sides like green beans or asparagus. A simple accompaniment of steamed broccoli would be a perfect pairing.

Tips!

  • Other choice of meat can be used as well such beef tenderloin (filet mignon), New York strip steak or stir fry meat.
  • Substitute red-skinned and fingerling potatoes for Yukon gold. (Russet potatoes may not hold they shape well)
  • If potatoes are not tender (after 8 minutes) but are starting to get too brown, turn down the heat to medium-low, add 2 tablespoons of warm water, cover and cook for about 3-4 minutes until water evaporates.
