ender steak bites are cooked in the crockpot in a flavorful au jus that’s perfect for serving over mashed potatoes or egg noodles.
- 3 pounds sirloin steak, cut into bite-sized pieces
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 small sweet onion, thinly sliced
- 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
- 1 cup unsalted beef stock
- 1 1 ounce packet au jus gravy mix
- 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, thinly sliced
- fresh chopped parsley for garnish, optional
- Place the cubed steak into a large bowl with the salt and pepper; toss to combine.
- Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add half of the oil. Sear the steak pieces in batches and place them into the slow cooker. Add more oil to the pan if needed.
- Once all the steak has been seared, add the onion and garlic to the slow cooker. Toss with the steak bites.
- Pour in the beef stock. Sprinkle with the au jus mix and top with slices of the butter.
- Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 hours or low 6-8 hours. Stir every 30 minutes or so, if you can. Serve warm, garnished with fresh parsley, if desired.
- Round steak, stew meat, or chuck roast can be used in place of sirloin.
- The searing step is optional but gives the steak bites more flavor.
- You can use unsalted beef broth in place of the beef stock if needed.
- Refrigerate leftovers for 3 days. Freeze for up to 3 months.
