Teriyaki Steak Bites

When Ryan and I went to Hawaii last September to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary, we arrived to our hotel a couple of hours before our room was ready. So we do what we do anytime we go somewhere, we look for a great place to eat. This time we picked Steak Shack on the beach and, lordy, was it ever good. I just remember taking the first bite while staring out over the ocean. It was the perfect way to kick off our trip.

That trip inspired these Teriyaki Steak Bites.

The steak bites that we enjoyed at Steak Shack were a little different than these in that they were spicy. I chose to go the Teriyaki Steak Bite route because I knew teriyaki sauce would be a bigger hit with the boys than spicy sauce. But the gist of the dish is the same. Bite size pieces of tender beef cooked to perfection.

To make Teriyaki Steak Bites you do have to plan a little bit ahead of time because you will need to marinate the steak bites at least 6 to 8 hours, preferably overnight. Marinating overnight gives the best flavor by really allowing the meat to soak up the flavor of the teriyaki.

Like all of my steak, I recommend cooking these steak bites to medium rare to medium. If you cook them any longer than that they have the tendency to get tough.

Just as predicted, Teriyaki Steak Bites were a hit with the kiddos. They gobbled them up and asked for seconds. They especially loved them served alongside garlic rice and salt and pepper roasted Brussels sprouts.

Yeah, my boys like Brussels sprouts. Who would’ve thought?!

    Is there any reason that I can’t cook the marinade after cooking the steak bites and use it too? We like a sauce with our rice and I hate to waste all that good flavor.

      I don’t see why not! As long as you bring the marinade to a boil for several minutes first :)
