Air Fryer Steak Bites and Potatoes

This is an easy and delicious steak and potato dinner that you can make entirely in your air fryer! This is a great one to have in the arsenal for those busy weeknights. 

My ideal choice of steak will always be ribeye, but this recipe also works great with more affordable cuts like sirloin, or strip steak. When you combine this with the air-fried potatoes in the recipe below you can really stretch out this meal to make it more affordable. 

When I make this meal my family of four can generally eat our fair share using just two 8-10 ounce steaks. One of my toxic traits is going straight to the meat section to search for reduced steaks to throw in the freezer to make meals like this. 

I’ve noticed that the best time in my area to find good deals on reduced meat seems to be on a Monday morning. Whenever I have a Monday off of work I always hit up our local Sam’s Club on the hunt for that elusive orange sticker! 

When cooking the steak bites in the air fryer it’s important to remember that every air fryer cooks a little bit differently. For mine specifically, 6-7 minutes at 400 degrees is the ideal cooking time for medium steak bites! 

To ensure that your steak is cooked to your desired doneness you can use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature after about the five-minute mark. I always pull my steak out once it hits a temperature of 145 degrees, but everyone has their own preference here! 

My air fryer has the ability to preheat and I always utilize this feature when I’m making this recipe to give a little extra sear to the steak bites. If your air fryer has the same feature I’d definitely recommend utilizing it! 

 

 

Don’t get me wrong nothing can replace a steak that’s cooked directly over the flames on a grill, but this weekday steak and potato meal comes pretty close. This one has crispy potatoes and juicy steak bites coated in a layer of creamy garlic butter all made in the air fryer with minimal time and effort!

      1. Luke I appreciate you thanks for bringing great food and easy to make I would love to buy your book is in stores or where can I get it

    It was pretty good, next time we will do mushrooms as well. I made a mistake of too much butter and garlic. Will definitely try it again.
    Thank you

  2. Hey Luke,

    Really like your recipes

    What is your suggestion to make this in a regular oven ? don’t have a air fryer

    400 for 10 min ?

    1. Use a cast iron pan if you have one for the oven and set inside while you preheat. If you get a chance to splurge on an air fryer do so they are a game changer. Worth every penny.

    I have shared so many of your recipes 😍 😋. I’m trying this one tonight minus the potatoes, going for a baked potato instead. I have no doubt this will be a delicious as the ones I’ve tried already. Thank you for sharing your recipes.

  4. I’m trying this recipe tonight. My husband is not a fan of garlic so can I omit the garlic, he’s in hospice at home and trying to please him with food is a battle within its self. So I’m going to try this I’ll let you know how it comes out. Good I hope.

    A husband and 3 picky kids all loved it. Only prep bowl and one air fryer basket to clean up and 30 minutes to make. TOTAL win.

    The hubs and the fam loved it. The steak was delicious, tender and juicy. The potatoes crispy and requested again. This recipe is a keeper! Served with a side of corn. There wasn’t any leftovers to be had.

    This was so easy and amazing! I’m not really a steak lover but this was so tender and delicious. My picky husband didn’t even put any sauce on it like he usually does with steak. It didn’t need it, it was so flavorful as is!
