Air frying steak bites is the best thing to happen to a steak. First, cut up the steak (and peppers) into cubes. Second, season or marinate with any steak marinade but never cook your steak unseasoned! Third, air fry the steak to your doneness, either rare, medium, or well done.

Recipe Notes/Tips for Air Frying Steak Bites:

  1. Choose the right meat/steak; fortunately, most meats are perfect in the air fryer. However, choosing the right cut of meat is essential when making steak bites. Some steaks I highly recommend include strip steaks, top sirloin, T-Bone, filet mignon, and ribeye. Today, I am using beef chuck steak because that is what I have on hand. 
  2. Cut the steak bites in equal sizes. I highly suggest cutting the steak similarly if you make air fryer steak bites. This way, the meat cooks equally and evenly, just like mine. You don’t want one steak bite to be ready, and the one isn’t ready.
  3. Season the steak bites; never cook unseasoned steak.
  4. Do not overcook steak bites, nevertheless, cook to your doneness. On the other hand, if am cooking more than a pound of steak my cooking time will likely increase.
  5. Cooking time may vary, pay attention, add or reduce cooking to suit you.
  6. Do not cook from frozen; it may be challenging to slice the meat. I highly suggest not cutting frozen meat. If possible, allow it to thaw.
  7. You can substitute steak for any meat choices, such as chicken, pork, or fish.
  8. When making air fryer steak bites and peppers, start by air frying the steak first. I usually don’t add the meat and the peppers simultaneously. I like the peppers to remain juicy and colorful and not overcooked.

Notes

Cut the steak bites in equal sizes. I highly suggest cutting the steak similarly if you make air fryer steak bites. You don’t want one steak bite to be ready, and the one isn’t ready.

Season the steak bites, never cook unseasoned steak. 

Feel free to use any steak of choice; I have used strip steaks and top sirloin, but I am using beef chuck steak today. Use the cut of steak you love.

Ensure to marinate the steak before cooking as it helps it tenderize even more. You can allow it to marinate overnight or for hours, but at least 30 minutes!

Do not overcook steak bites, nevertheless, cook to your doneness.

If cooking more than a pound of steak the cooking time will likely change and increase.

Cooking time may vary according air fryer, pay attention, add or reduce cooking to suit you.

Add spicy peppers to your preference. 

Feel free to spray a little oil spray after combining the peppers & onion.

Also, I love my Air Fryer; I use this one. Watch to see how I made this recipe.
