How Do I Store Garlic Steak Bites
It’s best to let the garlic steak bites cool down completely before storing them. Then place them into a storage container that’s airtight. The garlic butter steak bites will last 3-4 days in the fridge.
Heat them up in the skillet with a little bit of oil or toss them in the microwave. Just heat them until they are hot because if you cook them too long they will begin to get tough.
If you notice that the steak bites are smelly, have mold or seem dried out then toss them because they have gone bad.
