Recipe Notes and Tips
- Cut the steak bites into equal sized bites. This ensures they cook evenly.

- Cast iron is by far the best type of skillet to use. If you don’t have one, try non-stick.

- Be careful not to overcook the steak bites. A minute or two per side is all they need.
- Steak – Cut into bite sized cubes.
- Marinade – Soy sauce, olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, garlic, red chili flakes, salt and pepper.
- Potatoes – Baby Yukon gold.
- For sautéing – Olive oil, butter, garlic, fresh thyme, dried oregano, salt and pepper.
- Garnishes – Fresh parsley and grated parmesan cheese.
