Sure, these would make ideal New Year’s Eve appetizers, but I bet they’d be just as welcome on game day!

After all, who can resist fresh chimichurri or a perfectly seared ribeye on crunchy crostini?

Okay, I’m officially drooling!

So let’s cut to the chase because these 17 sensational steak appetizers deserve center stage.

1. Steak Appetizer with Caramelized Onion and Boursin® Garlic & Fine Herbs Cheese 

This recipe features balsamic caramelized red onions, Boursin cheese, and seared steak piled onto home-fried potato chips.

I recommend you pick thicker potatoes for the crisps but feel free to size them down for a bigger crowd. 

Either way, the result is wonderfully meaty with a well-balanced creamy, garlicky cheese that contrasts so well with the crunchy fried potatoes.

2. Garlic Butter Steak Bites

There’s no doubt in my mind that steak and butter go hand in hand. But when you add garlic to the mix, it gets so much better.

Once these babies are cooked, they make a perfect decadent yet easy appetizer to feed a crowd.

Add them to a hot platter full of potatoes, cheese, and fresh veggies for a balanced appetizer. Or, serve them for dinner with roasted potatoes and pan-fried bok choy.

3. Steak Bites Appetizer Recipe with Chimichurri Sauce

It’s hard for me to say which is the star of this dish – the steak bites or chimichurri sauce! You’ll just have to give it a try and make the call yourself.

Chimichurri sauce is packed with garlic, parsley, and red pepper flakes and serves beautifully drizzled over skewered steak bites.  

I suggest you make extra because, although it’s most traditionally served with steak, it elevates everything from roasted chicken to fish.

4. Skirt Steak Appetizers with Concord Grape Reduction

I usually go for a juicy oyster appetizer when I’m hoping to impress. But this steak recipe is the next best thing.

Not only does it look and sound sophisticated, but it’s surprisingly easy to put together.

Skirt steak is a fabulous cut of steak because it’s quick to cook.

And between the creamy Florette cheese, crunchy baguette, and tangy, sweet balsamic grape reduction, you won’t want anything else.

5. Ribeye Steak Crostini With Horseradish Sauce

If you’re hoping to impress your guests, this is hands down one of the best appetizers to serve at your next get-together!

The ingredient list is short, but the flavors are unparalleled!

Creamed horseradish sauce, Boursin cheese, medium-rare slices of ribeye, chives, and crostini are all you will need to whip up this scrumptious steak appetizer.

6. Seared Beef Tenderloin Crostini Appetizer

Sliced crostini bread is an excellent base for seared steak. It’s sturdy enough to hold its shape, but it still soaks up all the yummy juices without going soggy.

To make this recipe, don’t skip the horseradish or bleu cheese. They’re just as important as the meat.

Simple construction, divine results – this is one savory appetizer your guests will gush over!

7. Grilled Steak and Cheese Bites

You might not think to serve steak as a game-day appetizer, but with this simple combo, it’s easier than ever.

Jarlsberg cheese is in the Swiss cheese family and has similar construction and flavor. Pairing this sweet, nutty cheese with grilled sliced beef is heavenly! 

All you need to do is skewer the meat and cheese together with toothpicks. How easy is that?

8. Honey Garlic Steak Bites

When I’m feeding a crowd, I love to find unique and flavorful Asian appetizers. They’re always a hit and are practically bursting with flavor.

This steak recipe is no exception.

Perfectly sweet and wonderfully savory, these honey garlic steak bites are as close to perfect as you can get. And that’s all thanks to the Asian-inspired sauce the steak cooks in.

Serve these bites with rice or on skewers with roasted zucchini and charred onions.

9. Beef Wellington Bites

Traditional beef Wellington has an intimidating preparation process. This recipe, however, simplifies the method, making it dangerously simple.

The trick to this beef Wellington appetizer is a delicious mustard and egg coating on the puff pastry.

Also, be sure to get a good crust sear on the steak before wrapping it up. 

10. Buttery Blackened Steak Bites with Gorgonzola

Since I like things with a kick, any spicy food is a big hit in my house. But that goes double for Cajun appetizers!

These steak bites are blackened, meaning they’re full of herbs and spices that change the appearance of the meat. 

To serve as an appetizer, I recommend a hot charcuterie style board with cheeses, collard greens, roasted potatoes, and, of course, crostini bread. 

11. Steak Bites Recipe with Cheese Sauce

Tender steak served with bread, sauteed mushrooms, and cheese? Say no more.

Go ahead and make these ready-to-eat, or let your guests create their own with a fondue-style appetizer setting!

12. Chimichurri Steak Bites

This recipe is such a colorful appetizer to draw your guests in!

The combination of sliced steak, cherry tomatoes, and chimichurri sauce creates a beautiful appetizer any time of year.

I recommend serving this with chunky salad skewers to balance the fresh flavors with the grilled steak.

Of course, they’d be just as yummy served in a warm cast-iron skillet.

13. Easy Bacon Wrapped Steak Bites

Bacon and steak is a carnivore’s dream! 

These are so easy to put together and make fabulous finger food to boot! All you will need to do is wrap raw steak bites with bacon and bake!

And since these are protein-heavy, they even make ideal keto appetizers for your low-carb friends.

14. Grilled Foil Marinated Steak Bites

Turn your favorite marinated steak into an amazing appetizer in no time.

This recipe walks you through grilling marinated steak bites in foil, but is easily adapted to an appetizer.

Try serving these flavorful bites with roasted veggies like red peppers, sweet potatoes, or broccoli. Pretty much anything will work, but I like to choose something colorful and crunchy.

15. Soy Ginger Steak Bites 

I don’t know about you, but I am always excited to try new recipes, especially if ginger is a key ingredient!

The zesty ginger paired with soy and sesame seeds creates a traditional Asian sauce for the steak.

Serve with grilled broccoli and fried rice balls, and I’m not sure you’ll have room.

16. Flank Steak Crostini

When I say these are out of this world, I mean it.

I’m serious; you should grab your keys and race to the store because you’ll want to try these asap!

For this recipe, you’ll spread a hefty serving of mascarpone cheese on crunchy slices of baguette. Then top it with pan-seared, sliced flank steak.

I know what you’re thinking: you had me at mascarpone cheese.

17. Mouthwatering Steak and Potatoes Appetizer

It’s tough to go wrong with grilled steak and soft potatoes. But I love the addition of Bearnaise sauce in this recipe.

I promise you this is one steak appetizer your guests will rave about for years to come. You may even be tempted to add these to your dinner menu after the first try!
