The trick to making these really tasty, is to, of course....cook them in butter. It wouldn't be bar food if they were healthy, right?
Start with about 1 pound of meat. I used New York but Sirloin, Rib Eye or Fillet would be good too. Cut away any fat or gristle.
Cut the meat into 1 inch squares. Salt and pepper the meat.
TURN ON THE VENT!!! This is going to get smoky.
Heat a skillet until it is really hot (I like to use cast iron for this). Put 2 TBSP. of butter into the pan and let it sizzle and get brown. Don't burn the butter but let it get really brown. Put the meat cubes in the hot butter and don't move them for 1 minute. Now flip them over for 30 seconds more. Remove from pan and pour any dripping that may be left in the pan on top.
Serve with any kind of sauce you like for dipping. I put some chipotle pepper sauce in some mayonnaise and mixed it together. The other sauce was just a steak sauce from the bottle. You can also use your favorite barbecue sauce.
These are really good.
