We used to make these elaborate dinners at my house on New Year's Eve. But then we came to the conclusion that as good as those dinners were, they didn't leave much room for the REAL delights: the snacks. So now instead of a big dinner, we just make a bunch of different appetizers throughout the night. It's much more fun and everyone gets something they like!
My favorite New Year's Eve treats are little delicious bites of steak dipped in horseradish sauce. I admit it, I purposely get a little extra steak so that I can sample it as I cook. Here's the recipe:
New Year's Eve Steak Bites
- 1 lb beef tenderloin or sirloin cut into 1 1/2 inch cubes
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- juice from 1/2 lemon
- 1/8 tsp ground ginger
For sauce- mix together:
- 1/4-1/2 cup prepared horseradish
- 3/4 cup mayonnaise
Combine soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, lemon, and ginger in a bowl. Add the steak pieces and toss to coat. Let the steak marinate in the fridge for about 3-4 hours. Take the bowl out of the fridge about 1/2 hour before you plan to cook so the meat can come to room temp.
Heat up a heavy frying pan on high. In batches of 5-6 pieces (do not crowd the pan) cook the steak pieces turning when each side has a nice brown coating. They cook quickly, so stay close by. For rare, it should only take about 1-2 minutes on each side. Medium, 2-3 minutes. Remove the pieces from the pan an keep them warm until the rest are done.
Serve the pieces with horseradish sauce and just watch them disappear.
