Irresistible, marinated steak bites are served with perfectly browned gnocchi in this quick and easy, family favorite meal.
Steak and potatoes go together like peanut butter and jelly, cookies and milk, spaghetti and meatballs, Superman and Lois Lane — well, you get the idea. It is an irresistible pairing. What we don’t love is how long it takes to cook those potatoes, especially considering how quickly steak bites cook. Years ago we decided to try gnocchi instead of potatoes, and have never looked back. We are all about quick and easy weeknight meals, and this is one of our family’s absolute favorites.
The best cuts of steak for this recipe are sirloin steak, ribeye, New York, and tenderloin. Most importantly, you want your steak to be uniformly cut into bite-sized pieces for quick and even cooking.
Gnocchi is a potato dumpling — a traditional style of Italian pasta. You should be able to find it in the pasta aisle of your local grocery store.
Serving Suggestions for Steak Bites and Gnocchi:
Keep this meal simple with a salad on the side or your favorite roasted veggie, or both!
Make Ahead and Freezer Instructions:
If you don’t want to worry about the time to marinate steak for this recipe, you can always dice and marinate your steak ahead of time.

This dish was delicious even with a short marinade time. A keeper
Loved this recipe! It was super easy and felt so upscale. The family also all loved it.
Looks delicious. Will try it soon.
The marinade makes this dish. It is so flavorful and good, especially with the fresh garlic added towards the end. I will definitely be making this quick and delicious dinner again.
Loved this recipe! The only thing I changed was the meat. I used venison back strap. This is a keeper.
Made this tonight and it was a HUGE hit!
This was absolutely lovely.
I was looking to have something a little different than the usual meat and 3 vegetables.
The meat was very tender, lots of flavour and was finished off with grated parmesan cheese.
