Tips and Tricks

  • Adjust the total cook time based on the thickness of your steak bites and desired doneness.
  • The best way to ensure that any meat is cooked properly is to test the internal temperature using a meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the meat.
  • Let the steak come to room temperature before cooking for even cooking throughout.
  • Feel free to add additional seasonings, herbs, or your favorite steak seasoning according to your taste preferences.
  • Seal leftovers in an airtight container and store in the fridge.

How to Get the Best Results from Your Air Fryer

  • It’s important to preheat the air fryer to ensure even and consistent cooking.
  • Make sure your food is in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd the basket, as this may lead to uneven cooking. Cook in batches if needed to allow for adequate circulation of hot air.
  • Save on clean up by lining your air fryer basket with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Clean your air fryer! I recommend washing by hand, but check your manual.

FAQ

  • Everyone is talking about air frying. How exactly does an air fryer work? An air fryer cooks food quickly by radiating heat into the chamber that is then circulated through convection. This allows for food to be fried without the use of oils.
  • What is your favorite cut of steak to cook with? Do you use the same cut for every recipe? We love to use rib eye but sirloin is another favorite.
