Recipe Ingredients List
To bring these irresistible Crispy Garlic-Parmesan Beef Bites to life, you’ll need the following ingredients:
– 1 pound beef, cut into bite-sized pieces
– 3 cloves of garlic, minced
– 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
– 1 cup breadcrumbs
– 2 eggs, beaten
– Salt and pepper, to taste
Optional variations or additional ingredients:
– 1 teaspoon dried herbs (such as oregano or basil), for added flavor
– ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper or paprika, for a hint of spiciness
– Lemon zest, for a burst of freshness
Feel free to experiment with different herbs and spices, tailoring the recipe to your personal taste preferences.
1. Begin by preheating your oven to 400°F (200°C). If you prefer frying your beef bites, preheat a skillet with oil over medium-high heat.
2. Season the bite-sized pieces of beef with salt and pepper, ensuring they are evenly coated.
3. In a separate bowl, combine minced garlic, grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, and any optional herbs or spices you choose to include. Mix well.
4. Dip each piece of seasoned beef into the beaten eggs, ensuring it is fully coated.
5. Next, roll the egg-coated beef pieces in the garlic-Parmesan breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere the coating to the beef.
6. If you are oven-baking, place the coated beef bites on a greased baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy. If you prefer frying, add the coated beef bites to the preheated skillet and cook for about 2-3 minutes per side, or until they are golden brown and cooked to your desired level of doneness.
7. Once cooked, remove the Crispy Garlic-Parmesan Beef Bites from the oven or skillet and let them cool for a few minutes.
8. Serve the beef bites on a platter, garnishing with fresh herbs, lemon zest, or grated Parmesan cheese if desired. These bites are delightful when paired with a tangy dipping sauce, like marinara or aioli.
