23ouncessteak, cut into 2 inch cubes(can use Sirloin, Rump, New York, Porterhouse or Rib-eye, I used Sirloin)
1 -2tablespooncanola oil
1⁄4cupbutter (sliced to melt faster)

1⁄2 – 3⁄4teaspooncayenne pepper, add more if you like heat

**This is Homemade Cajun Seasoning mix. Feel free to use your own recipe or store bought, we just use about 2-3 Tbsp of seasoning. Use more for more spice.
Combine cajun seasoning in mixing bowl. Add the steak bites and toss to evenly coat.
Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a skillet or pan over medium-high heat until hot.
Sear the steak bites in batches for 2-3 minutes each side (about 3-4 for more well-done bites) until edges are crispy and browned, adding extra oil as needed. Remove from pan (I use tongs to place them on a cutting board/bowl–this will also allow the meat to cool a bit, soaking in its juices!).
Reduce heat to medium. Add butter to the skillet and heat until melted. Sauté the chopped garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds), while scraping up any browned bits from the pan.
Take the pan off heat. Throw the steak bites back in and toss through the garlic butter to evenly coat.
I served this to my family with Rhodes rolls, mashed potatoes/gravy, and "Mamas Kitchen Hope" 24K Carrot recipe. Very easy recipes that you can make into a wonderful meal!
