How to make bacon wrapped steak bites
Grab some toothpicks, a sheet pan and a sharp knife, and you’re ready to prep these bites! Here’s how:
- Preheat your oven to 425° Fahrenheit.
- Cut the steak into small, bite-sized cubes and cut the bacon pieces into thirds.

What steak is best for this appetizer?
Most cuts of steak will work for this recipe. It’s easiest to work with a boneless cut, but you can also use a bone-in cut like a T-bone (you’ll just have to cut around the bone). Some great options are:
- Beef tenderloin
- Skirt steak
- New York strip
Just make sure you cut the steak into even, bite-sized cubes for even cooking. Don’t cut the cubes too big, this is a one bite appetizer.
Can I prep this recipe in advance?
Yes, you absolutely can. It’s the perfect appetizer in this regard because you can do all the work ahead of time and just pop it in the oven for 15 minutes when you’re ready to serve.
Just prepare the steak bites as noted in the recipe and cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to cook them. Or you can store them in an airtight container so they are portable and just pop them on the sheet pan for cooking.

Easy Bacon Wrapped Steak Bites
- 1 pound Steak, (beef tenderloin, sirloin, skirt steak or NY strip are great options)
- 8 pieces bacon
- Salt & pepper
- Preheat the oven to 425° Fahrenheit.
- Cut your beef into small, bite-sized cubes. You'll be wrapping them in bacon, make sure not to cut them too big or they won't turn out to be more than one bite and harder to eat.
- Season the beef cubes lightly with salt and pepper.
- Cut each strip of bacon into thirds.
- Wrap the bacon around the beef cubes and secure it with a toothpick. Place on a sheet pan.
- Bake the bites in the oven for about 12-15 minutes, until the bacon starts to get crispy and the steak is cooked. If needed, you can switch the oven to broil at the end to crisp up the bacon.
- Serve and enjoy.
I did this but added chives on top of the bacon and put on shredded cheese during the last couple of minutes of baking. It was awesome and pairs well with tater tots for an easy dinner! Also a good use for eye of round filets!

I’ve done these for years, and I do not precook bacon, use filet, cut bacon strips in half, and cook at 350 for 17-18 minutes, until bacon is done, but not crisp.I lean towards cutting the meat into rectangular prisms, maybe 1″ x 1″ x width of bacon.
Cook at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 12-15 minutes.
Thinking of this for a work potluck but don’t have an oven at work. What are you thoughts on cooking them, refrigerating then transferring to a crockpot on low an hour or two before to warm them up/keep them warm for the potluck lunch?
I think that would work, but might result in the steak being more on the “well done” side.
Thanks for the reply. Yes I was thinking the same thing, I might do a trial run and see how it goes.
