Steak Tidbits

  • ½ cup Soy Sauce low sodium
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 Large Garlic Cloves minced
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper optional
  • 2 tablespoons Canola Oil
  • pounds Top Sirloin Steak cut into 1 inch cubes

Garlic Toast

  • ¼ cup Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2-3 Large Garlic Cloves peeled and smashed
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • Pinch of Black Pepper
  • 1 Baguette Bread sliced into ½ inch rounds
  • 1 teaspoon Parsley finely chopped


Prepare the steak

  • Add the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, minced garlic, black pepper, salt and crushed red pepper to a medium bowl. Stir well with a fork or whisk to combine. Refrigerate the marinade while you prepare the steak.
  • Remove any fat from the sirloin steak. Then, cut it into roughly one inch cubes.
  • Add the sirloin steak cubes and the marinade to a large zip-top bag. Seal the bag well and massage the steak to make sure it’s all covered in the marinade.
  • Place the bag on a pan or plate, just in case the bag leaks, and refrigerate for 2 hours, up to 24 hours.
  • Remove the steak from the refrigerator about a ½ hour before cooking to get the chill out (provided that it is cool in your kitchen).
  • Remove the sirloin steak tidbits out of the zip-top bag using tongs or a slotted spoon, and place them in a bowl. Discard the leftover marinade.

Prepare the garlic toast

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F
  • Add the extra virgin olive oil to a small bowl. Add the smashed garlic cloves, salt and pepper, stir well to combine. Let the olive oil sit at room temperature for about a ½ hour to let the garlic flavor the oil.
  • Cut the baguette bread into roughly ½ inch rounds and arrange them on a large baking sheet.
  • Use a pastry brush to lightly coat the bread with the garlic infused olive oil. Place the bread in the oven for approximately 5-10 minutes until it’s lightly toasted.
  • Remove the bread from the oven, sprinkle the top with chopped parsley.

Cook the steak tidbits

  • Heat the canola oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high to high heat. When the oil is very hot, add the steak.
  • Cook the steak for about 1½ - 2 minutes. Turn each piece and cook another 1½ - 2 minutes, or until the steak bits are completely browned and cooked through.
  • Remove the skillet from the heat and transfer the steak tidbits to a plate or pan along with any juices remaining in the skillet.

Build the steak tidbits

  • Place a couple of steak pieces on each garlic toast and spoon a little bit of the cooking juices over the meat. Garnish with chopped parsley and arrange them on a serving platter. Serve warm.


Keep in mind that the steak needs to marinade for at least 2 hours and the olive oil for the toast needs to sit for about a ½ hour to let the garlic flavor infuse the oil.
