How To Make a Perfect One Pot Steak Bites and Potatoes Skillet Dinner
Delicious, juicy, and tender steak isn’t made by accident – steak can be tough, chewy, and dry when not cooked right.
While this steak bites recipe does reduce cooking time by making smaller bites of steak, the cooking can be a bit more complicated by adding other ingredients into the cast iron skillet.
These Tips will help your blue cheese steak bites and potatoes skillet dinner to be packed with tons of flavor from perfectly cooked steak!
-Slice potatoes thin before cooking.
Since potatoes take longer to cook, it is important to cut your fingerling potatoes to small bite sized slices.
This will help the potatoes cook faster and crisp up more.
-Use high heat.
Steak responds best to fast cooking with a very high temperature.
-Cook in batches.
For the best results, I like to cook the potatoes first to crispy – which will help the cast iron get nice and hot as the potatoes cook.
When the potatoes have softened and crisped up, remove to rest, covered with foil on baking sheets, and then add bite sized steak chunks to pan and sear on high heat.
When Steak has browned on all sides, add mushrooms, salt and pepper to pan and toss in olive oil.
When mushrooms have started to brown, add potatoes back to pan and mix.
Sprinkle with blue cheese and then enjoy!
How To Cut Steak into Steak Bites
For this recipe to give the best tender and delicious steak flavor, it’s important to cut your steak into small 1″ bites – allowing it to cook faster without making the steak get tough or dry.
Follow these tips for perfectly cut steak bite cubes:
Trim off the excess fat from the meat, and then cut sirloin steak into strips that are just less than 1-inch wide.
Cut strips into 1″ cubes, trying to keep the shape and size of the steak cubes uniform so they can cook evenly at the same time.
If you see any more large chunks of fat, gristle or long silvery membrane, remove them from sirloin steak before cooking for best texture and taste.
What Temperature To Cook Steak Bites To
What temperature to cook steak to is a hotly contested subject – and in the end, your personal preferences will determine whether you’d like your steak bites cooked to medium rare, medium, done, or well done.
No matter how you prefer your steak, this recipe is easy to get the temperature you love, in just one pan!
For Best results, I like my steak bites cooked to medium rare – seared on the outside and a touch red in the middle.
A medium rare steak bite will cook in about 4 minutes if you’re using high heat, stirring occasionally to prevent burning.
Rare steak will be very soft to the touch, almost “jello” like.
Medium rare steak will have a bit firmer texture when pressed, but still has some give.
Medium steak will be much firmer to the touch and have reduced slightly in size.
Well done steak will be much firmer to touch, and will have reduced in size.
