Here’s another restaurant remake for you, Jefferson Place Steak Bites! This is a remake of an all-time favorite local restaurant! I just had to duplicate the recipe since the restaurant is not longer open. Jefferson Place Steak Bites are perfect as an appetizer or entree (make extra!) or over a green salad – rich and full flavored!

Jefferson Place Steak Bites makes a hearty appetizer and is great for game day watching. Men love game and steak so it’s a win win situation.

Fun times!

Additionally, not only is this a great tasting recipe, it has a lot of nostalgia for me. Let’s get to the details!

Jefferson Place Steak Bites

  1. Steak likes lots of pepper and steak likes lots of salt. I swear it’s the steak, not me!
  2. When cooking this recipe, use a very large skillet. If you don’t have a large skillet, cook the steak bites in batches. You don’t want to crowd the pan.
  3. I prefer a cast iron skillet, but any heavy-bottomed skillet will work. A Dutch oven will work beautifully as well.
  4. Use a good cut of steak. I prefer a ribeye or chuck eye steak. You can use a sirloin, especially if you’re feeding a crowd to keep the cost down. But, I recommend splurging on a better cut is you’re making it for a smaller group.
  5. Sear the outside while leaving the inside at your preferred level of doneness. We like rare to medium-rare steaks the best.
