Easiest Mediterranean Steak Bites Recipe

A simple stove top steak dinner that whips up in no time! This Mediterranean Steak Bites recipe is juicy and delicious, and perfectly balanced with a tangy yogurt sauce

While I really prefer my steak on the grill, that’s not always the easiest thing since the weather isn’t always on our side. We definitely fire up the grill year round, but there are most certainly times we say, ok, it’s way too cold for that.

And these Mediterranean Steak Bites are for times just like that–nights when you really want some juicy steak, but the grilling is not looking like it’s going to happen.

Instructions For Easiest Mediterranean Steak Bites Recipe

For the Steak Bites:

⭐In a medium bowl or a large ziplock bag, combine olive oil, garlic, oregano, thyme, rosemary, lemon juice, salt and pepper and shake or whisk to combine well.

⭐Add in raw steak bites and allow to coat each piece.

⭐Marinate for at least 30 minutes if possible and can be marinated several hours and up to overnight.

⭐Heat a cast iron or nonstick skillet over medium high heat. Add steak and any extra olive oil from mixture into the skillet.

⭐Allow steak to cook 2-3 minutes per side, flipping once, trying to touch or flip minimally.

⭐If you like a steak that’s more done, you can leave the steak on for an extra minute or so.

⭐Remove skillet from oven and toss halved tomatoes in allowing to heat slightly. Sprinkle with feta before serving.

For Yogurt Sauce:

⭐Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and stir well. Chill until ready to serve. Salt to taste.

⭐Spoon over steak or use it as a dip and enjoy!

NOTES:

Marinate for as long as you can for even more flavor. If you can only marinate for 10 minutes for so, they will still be delicious, but with any meat recipe, the more time flavor can soak in, the better.

Do not overcook your steak bites. These cook pretty quickly so you will want to stay near the stove at all times. They will cook a bit more after you remove the skillet from the stove so pull them off just before you think they are ready.
