Air Fryer Steak Tips

If you want, you can cook the steak tips just by themselves. Or add mushrooms, asparagus or what ever veggies you like. But if you want to serve with potatoes: cut potatoes into pieces about half the size of the steak bites for them to cook to the best texture. We prefer using pee-wee or baby gold potatoes and then cutting them in half or quarters. 
Keto friendly version: you can cook the steak tips without potatoes or with other keto-friendly veggies.
For the types of steak, use your favorite. Depending on the budget, we prefer ribeye, sirloin, tri-tip, and chuck shoulder steaks (aka London Broil steaks).

  • Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
  • Preheating the Air Fryer is preferable, it creates a better sear on the steak. If you don’t preheat, add more time to the cooking.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
