Cumin Steak Bites

How do you turn a cheap cut of meat into something you want to eat—in less than 10 minutes? Cumin Steak Bites, of course. Serve these tender nuggets with a raw green drink, a green salad, or some steamed vegetables. Leaving the meat rare not only keeps it tender, it preserves valuable enzymes as well as vitamins such as B6.

Ingredients

Serves 3–4
1 pound round or sirloin steak, cut into 1 1/4-inch cubes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon olive oil or virgin coconut oil

Preparation

1. Preheat a cast iron skillet over medium high heat for 4 to 5 minutes until very hot. Meanwhile, combine the spices in a small bowl and mix well. Place the steak in a medium sized bowl and add the spices. Mix the meat and spices with thoroughly with your hands so that spices are completely absorbed into the meat.

2. Add the oil to the pan and immediately add the beef. Cook undisturbed for 2 minutes until the meat is browned on the cooking side. Then shake the pan to flip the meat. (Use tongs if necessary so that all the pieces are turned over.) Cook 3 more minutes, remove the pan from the heat, and let cool. (Steak bites should be medium rare.) Transfer steak to individual plates and serve.
