What are steak bites?

Steak bites are simply small pieces of steak that have been cut into bite-sized pieces. They can be cooked in various ways, but my favorite way to prepare them is by cooking them in a skillet on the stove and then adding a flavorful teriyaki sauce. Of course, I then serve the steak bites with my favorite sides!

Beef Steak Teriyaki Ingredients

Make sure you check out the ingredient list because this is an abbreviated version.

  • Sirloin steak: Go ahead and cut it into bite-size pieces!
  • Unsalted butter: The right amount of butter will help make this recipe perfect.
  • Low sodium soy sauce: The flavor is natural whenever you use a good soy sauce.
  • Honey: A little sweetness goes a long way in steak sauce.
  • Brown sugar: Trust me, you can’t go wrong using brown sugar in this recipe.
  • Minced garlic:  I don’t think there are many recipes to which I don’t add garlic.
  • Sesame seeds: You’ll never eat steak bites the same again!
  • Cornstarch: This will be used to thicken the sauce.

How To Make Teriyaki Steak Bites

  • In a medium bowl whisk together soy sauce, water, honey, brown sugar, minced garlic, rice vinegar, sesame oil, ground ginger, sesame seeds, and cornstarch until combined. Set aside.
  • In a large skillet heat butter over medium-high heat and add steak.
  • Cook steak until it reaches your desired temperature. I prefer my steak to be cooked medium well.
  • Once steak has reached desired temperature, pour teriyaki sauce over steak and bring to a boil.
  • Once sauce begins to thicken remove from heat and serve with rice and broccoli if desired. Garnish with sesame seeds and green onions if desired. Enjoy!

FAQs for The Best Teriyaki Steak Bites

Do I have to use sirloin steak?

You don’t HAVE to use sirloin steak, but I highly recommend it. It’s a leaner cut of meat and has excellent flavor.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?

Yes! You can marinate the steak in the sauce for up to 24 hours. I would recommend cooking the steak within a day or two, though.

How should I serve these steak bites?

I love to serve them over a bed of rice with some grilled vegetables on the side. They would also be great as an appetizer served with toothpicks.

What is the best way to store leftovers?

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days

What can I use instead of sesame seeds?

If you’re not a fan of sesame seeds, you can leave them out or substitute them with something like chopped peanuts or cashews.

Tips for Making This Easy Teriyaki Steak Recipe

  • You can serve the steak bites as big or small as you like. If you’re serving them as an appetizer, I recommend cutting the steak into smaller pieces.
  • Low sodium soy sauce is optional, but I prefer to use it in this recipe because it helps control the sauce’s saltiness.
  • You can quickly freeze the leftovers in a freezer-safe container. Just make sure to thaw them in the fridge overnight before reheating.

What to Serve with Beef Steak Teriyaki?

As I mentioned above, I love to serve this recipe over a bed of rice with some grilled vegetables on the side. But there are so many other great options for sides as well. Here are a few of my favorites:

  • Roasted potatoes: These would be delicious roasted in the oven with a bit of olive oil, salt, and pepper.
  • Steamed broccoli: A classic side dish that goes with just about everything.
  • Green beans: These can be steamed, roasted, or even grilled.
  • Zucchini and squash: Another great option for grilling or roasting.

The Best Teriyaki Steak Bites are the perfect combination of sweet and savory flavors. The steak is always so tender and juicy, and they’re the ideal size for an appetizer or main course.
