What Type Of Steak For Steak Bites
To make steak bites, you can use a lot of different cuts of steak – but I recommend one of the three cuts of steak below:
-Sirloin. Sirloin is economical and easy to cook quickly, and is the perfect steak for making kebabs, steak bites, or other steak cube dishes.
-New York Strip. New York Strips aren’t the most economical, but give a tender, juicy flavor.
-Ribeye. While not the most economical, I love ribeye for steak bites because all of the marbled fat makes for incredible flavor.
How To Cut Steak Bites
Steak bites are one of the easiest, most delicious, and quickest ways to make steak – and they are full of juicy steak flavor.
To cut steak without compromising the quality and texture, it is important to pay attention to the grain of the meat.
To cut steak easily, very briefly freeze before cutting. Making steak very, very cold makes it easier to slice.
Use a sharp knife, and cut against the grain.
The Best Cajun Seasoning
This recipe can be made with store bought cajun seasoning, or homemade cajun spices.
My favorite cajun seasoning mix is super easy to whip up ahead of this recipe – store in a jar with a tight fitting lid and keep on hand so you can make this one pot cajun steak and shrimp skillet anytime you’d like!
