1 1/2 lb
boneless striploin steak
750 g
1/2 tsp each
salt and cracked black pepper
2 mL
1 tbsp
canola oil
15 mL
1/4 cup
Compliments Unsalted Butter
60 mL
2 tbsp
minced garlic
30 mL
1/4 cup
crumbled blue cheese (optional)
60 mL
2 tbsp
chopped parsley, plus more for garnish
30 mL
16 to 18
small wooden picks or skewers


Step 1

Pat steak dry with paper towel. Trim off and discard excess fat. Cut the steak into 1 in. (2.5 cm) cubes – 16 to 18 cubes. Season all sides with salt and pepper.

Step 2

Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed or cast-iron frypan over medium-high heat until shimmering. Working in batches if needed, sear the steak cubes on 1 side for 2 min. until well-crusted and golden brown. Tip: When searing, don’t shake the pan, poke or move the steak. Cook the meat undisturbed to create a crust. Turn cubes over and sear the opposite side. Only brown the 2 sides of the cubes to avoid overcooking. Aim for an internal temperature of 55°C (130°F) for medium-rare. Transfer seared steak bites to a plate.

Step 3

Using the same pan, reduce the heat to medium-low, swirl in the butter and minced garlic. Cook, stirring constantly, just until the garlic is golden, about 1 min. Remove the pan from the heat and, if using, stir in the blue cheese until melted. Return steak bites to the pan, any juices collected on the plate, plus the parsley. Gently toss to coat the meat in the garlic-butter sauce.

Step 4

Transfer steak bites to a serving plate, spooning the garlic-butter sauce overtop. Insert a pick or skewer into the top of each piece. Sprinkle with additional chopped parsley, if desired. Serve immediately.


The blue cheese is optional, but it boosts the umami flavour of the beef and will have guests guessing at the delicious secret ingredient.
Try garnishing with finely chopped chives or green onion for added fresh flavour.
