Air Fryer Steak Bites

August 16, 2021

A white plate holds a serving of air fryer steak bites served with primal kitchen classic bbq sauce.

Raise the steaks for school night dinners with an easy, fast, delicious recipe made in the air fryer. This version of steak can be made in less than 20 minutes, making it the perfect quick bite for busy weekdays, or an unexpected appetizer for last-minute guests. Air Fryer Steak Bites can be made with just four ingredients: avocado oil, sirloin steak, salt and pepper. Dip and dunk these savory bites in your favorite Primal Kitchen Sauce, and get dinner on the table in no time.

This easy cut-and-cook dish is a perfect carnivore diet steak recipe: with little seasoning, the savory and succulent natural flavor of the steak can shine through. Folks who are on keto or carnivore diets can enjoy these air fryer steak bites when time is tight.

How Long Does It Take to Cook Steak in an Air Fryer?

The cook time on different air fryer models will vary, but aim to keep your steak in the fryer for at least ten to fifteen minutes. Remove the basket every five minutes or so to check the cooking progress, and shake the steak a bit so it cooks evenly throughout. Depending on how well done you like your steak, use a meat thermometer to prevent undercooked (or overcooked!) bites.

Check the temperature of the biggest cut of steak, and follow this cheat sheet so your bites are cooked to perfection.

Rare: 125 Fahrenheit

Medium rare: 130 Fahrenheit
