Steak Bites with Garlic Butter

1 ½ pounds breast steak

1 teaspoon kosher salt

½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

6 garlic cloves, minced

4 tablespoons butter divided

Optional: thinly sliced ​​green onions

Cut the tenderloin into small pieces about 1/2″ – 3/4″.

Generously sprinkle the meat with 3/4 teaspoon of salt, pepper and garlic.

Heat a flat-bottomed stainless steel skillet over medium-high heat and add 1 tablespoon of butter.

When the butter has melted, turn to cover the pan. Add about half of the meat and roll it over the pan.

Cook for 1 minute then use a large spatula to flip the pieces.

Cook 1 minute more. Use a spatula to remove the meat to a plate, then repeat with the second batch of meat pieces.

Add an additional tablespoon of butter to the skillet. The whole process of cooking the meat should only take a few minutes in total. When the meat is cooked, loosely place foil over the cooked tenderloin bites on the plate.

Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter in the hot skillet.

Scrape the browned bits of meat from the bottom of the pan.

Pour the juices from the pan with butter over the meat bites on the plate. Serve hot.
