Cooking with Sara: Steak Bites

Recently, a new friend told me about how amazing Pioneer Woman's Steak Bites recipe is, so of course, I had to try it. 

The recipe itself is a little wordy and detailed, but the whole thing goes together in under 10 minutes!  And it really is goooood.  I'll definitely be making this again.  I might even experiment with adding other flavors with the butter - wine?  Fresh herbs?  Soy or teriyaki sauce?  Just a smidge of any of those would probably taste really good.

Also, I have to put in my two cents here about red meat:  First off, I really don't know a thing about cuts of meat.  I typically wait until Filet is on sale and then buy it.  Because, it's hard to screw up Filet Mignon; it really doesn't need much of anything added to it, and it's delicious.  Aside from that, I really like to buy "natural" meat.  I know, I know - that "natural" label is impossible to regulate, and you don't truly know how much more natural the meat is than regular stuff.  But I will say this:  Bo and I can totally taste the difference.  Whenever I spring for "natural" meats in the butcher case, they've tasted better.  I'd like to think that their claims of zero hormones are, indeed, better for me, but who really knows.
