Steak Bites

Pin It
These were originally titled "Steak Fingers." Gross name, right? I guess when you think of Chicken Fingers it doesn't sound too bad anymore, but still. Fingers? That you eat? Yuck.

Therefore, I decided to make an executive decision and change the name to Steak Bites. Much more appealing. And they really are quite tasty, regardless of what the name is. They're basically a grown up version of Chicken Nuggets since they're made with beef. And since they're bite-size I'm sure kids would like these as well. You can also serve them as an appetizer to a crowd of rowdy men while they're watching all the NFL games lined up this Sunday. Enjoy! 

Printable Recipe

  • 2 lbs. tenderized round steak or cube steak, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 tsp. seasoned salt
  • 1/2 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1 cup reduced-fat milk
  • Vegetable oil and light butter for frying

Combine flour, seasoned salt, pepper, and cayenne in a dish.

Whisk together milk and eggs in a separate dish.

To bread the meat, first dredge in flour, then dip quickly in egg mixture, then put back into the flour to coat on both sides. Continue until all the meat is breaded.

Heat vegetable oil with 2 tablespoons light butter in a large skillet over medium to medium-high heat. Fry steak strips 4 or 5 at a time, turning midway through. When golden brown, remove from the pan to a paper towel-lined plate. Cover loosely with foil to keep warm. Continue until all the meat is done.

Serve steak bites with ketchup and a salad.
