Author Notes

These steak bites are so incredibly easy to make and pair perfectly with this spicy blue cheese sauce and grilled asparagus. The cajun-flavored marinade tenderizes the steak and tastes amazing. Easily transportable in resealable plastic bags, you can haul these babies anywhere and have dinner in a flash.

Tip: Poke your meat with a fork before marinating to maximize the amount of flavor that penetrates into the meat. —Tonja Engen
