Get packed-with-flavor Asian-influenced steak bites with our easy recipe even the most novice chef can follow, then dip them in a four-ingredient Sriracha-lime-mayo sauce to make them an appetizer worthy of turning into the main meal.

Asian Steak Bites
Prep: 1Hr 10 Mins | Total: 1Hr 30 Mins
Serves: 4-6 servings
Difficulty: Easy
2 Pound Sirloin, flank, or hanger steak , cut into bite-sized pieces
1/3 Cup Low-sodium soy sauce
3 Tablespoons Honey
2-3 cloves Garlic, minced (about 1 tablespoon)
1 teaspoon Crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 Tablespoons Rice wine vinegar
1 Tablespoon Sesame oil
1 Tablespoon Sesame seeds (Optional)
2 Tablespoons Canola oil (can use other neutral-flavored oil if desired)
Dipping Sauce
1/2 Cup Mayonnaise
1 Tablespoons Sriracha Sauce
1 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
1-2 Tablespoons Lime juice (juice of 1 lime)
1 teaspoon Lime zest (Optional) (zest of 1 lime)
In a large bowl or zip-top bag, combine soy sauce, honey, garlic, crushed red pepper flakes, rice wine vinegar, and sesame oil. Mix to combine.
Add steak to marinade and allow to sit 1-4 hours.
After steak has finished marinating, remove steak from marinade and allow to drain well.
If desired, place marinated steak bites on small skewers. Season steak bites with salt, if desired.
Add canola oil to a large, heavy bottomed pan over medium heat. Cook steak, in batches, until done to your liking. Make sure to keep a close eye on the steak so it does not burn due to the sugar in the marinade.
To make dipping sauce, mix together mayonnaise, Sriracha sauce, sugar, lime juice, and lime zest, if using.
Chef Tips
If after searing, the steak browns before it is cooked to your liking, you can finish cooking the steak in a 350F/175C oven on a lined baking sheet.

Worried about the mess of eating these marinated steak bites? Stop! There’s a simple solution: stick them on some skewers and call it an easy day.

We love the simplicity of the Sriracha-lime dipping sauce, but we wanted even more of a kick, so we added lime zest into the mix. You can add some too, or leave it out for a milder – but no less delicious! – flavor.

For us, the ultimate steak doneness is a medium-rare to medium, with a nice brown sear. If you’re more of a well-done kind of person, however, you can always finish them up in the oven after they reach browning. Just line a sheet tray, heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius), and pop them in until you’re satisfied.
