These buttery garlic steak strips are seared and cooked to perfection and topped with garlic herb butter compound. You will need some streak and ensure it has a nice marbling that will make it extra tender. Cut the steak into strips and then toss them into a bowl then add in soy sauce, Worcestershire, garlic powder, and onion powder.
Season with salt and pepper then give that a good toss and make sure every inch of the steak strips is coated with the seasoning. Heat your skillet to medium-high heat then add in olive oil and let it heat until it starts to smoke. Add in your streak strips while being careful not to add the seasoning liquid and ensure you do not overcrowd the pan. If you have a small pan you can do this in batches to have well-cooked steak strips.
Let the steak stips sear for one minute per side then flip them to the side. When your steak strips are well cooked to a brown colour, throw in some butter in the pan and stir it around a little bit until the butter melts. Remove the steak strips from the pan then add some more butter to the pan with some crushed garlic and let it saute for a few seconds.
Add the rest of the seasoning liquid to the pan and let it glaze all the flavour, give it a stir then turn off the heat. Pour the buttery garlic goodness on top of the steak strips and serve with rice.
