Cast Iron Steak & Gnocchi

Made, written & photographed by the creators of the Point

Warning: 1 to 8 hour marinating time!

This is a quick and simple meal that is perfect for a week night dinner. You could serve some veggies up on the side and have a dinner for 4!

Our favorite way to save money on steaks is to shop the "reduced price" sales. A lot of times we can get two large steaks for $10-$13.


Cast Iron Steak & Gnocchi

serves 3 to 4 | Total Time: 30 minutes + marinating time


  • 1 pound beef sirloin steak, any cut will work but try to avoid very fatty steaks

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon onion powder

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 pound frozen gnocchi

  • 2 teaspoons steak seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese , for serving


1. Cut the steaks into bite sized pieces and trim off the fat.

2. In a ziplock bag or container with lid, combine 2 tablespoon lemon juice, 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, salt and pepper. Marinate the steak bites for 1 to 8 hours.

Refrigerate throughout the day for the full marinade time.

3. Begin by bringing a pot of water to a boil. Cook the 1 lb gnocchi according to package.

4. Heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add steak bites and sprinkle steak seasoning over the top. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, and flip to brown both sides

If you have too many steak bites for the skillet, cook in two batches and place cooked steaks onto a clean plate while the second round cooks. Return all steak back to the cast iron skillet before moving on.

5. Add 2 tablespoons butter and 2 minced garlic cloves to the steak cast iron skillet. Let the garlic cook for 1 to 2 minutes.

6. Dump your cooked, and drained, gnocchi into the hot cast iron skillet. Cook while stirring and flipping the contents for for 3 to 5 minutes, or until gnocchi begins to crisp.

7. Top with some grated parmesan and serve with veggies on the side.
