I love this meal for its simplicity and quick prep, and my family can’t get enough!

The Air Fryer is one of my favorite cooking tools for making healthy, no-fuss dinners. If you like this recipe, be sure to check out my Air Fryer Rotisserie Chicken and Air Fryer Chicken Fajitas.

Why We Love Air Fryer Steak & Potatoes

  • Only 4 simple ingredients needed to make this super easy recipe
  • Quick prep and easy clean up
  • Very little oil needed
  • It’s a 20-minute meal, mostly hands off
  • It’s healthy and high in protein (26 grams per serving!)

Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Steak Bites – use pre-cut or cut your own from strip sirloin steak
  • Yukon Gold Potatoes – look for the baby yellow potatoes in the grocery store
  • Olive oil
  • Seasonings – sea salt, black pepper, and garlic powder

Swaps & Variations

Steak – use sirloin tips (I like these from Butcher Box) or cut strip steak into 1 inch cubes

Potatoes – baby red potatoes or diced russet potatoes also work well in this recipe

Oil – avocado oil can be used in place of olive oil

Seasonings – try kosher salt, my Homemade Seasoned Salt, or steak seasoning in place of the sea salt and other seasonings

Optional Garlic Butter Sauce – after the steak and potatoes have cooked, toss them in a mixture of melted butter and minced garlic

How to Make Air Fryer Steak & Potatoes

  1. Halve the baby potatoes and toss with half the oil and seasonings in a large bowl.
  2. Arrange potatoes in a single layer in the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes at 400 degrees.
  3. Add the steak bites and remaining oil and seasonings to the bowl – toss to coat.
  4. Shake the basket well, tossing the potatoes.
  5. Add the steak bites to the basket with the potatoes and continue cooking at 400 degrees for 4-6 minutes.


Can I use stew meat in this recipe?

Yes, although you may need to increase the cooking time. Also, keep in mind that stew meat tends to be tougher. For best results, I prefer a more tender steak cut like sirloin or strip steak.

How to store leftovers?

Place leftovers in an airtight container and refrigerate for 1-2 days. Leftovers can be reheated for 1-2 minutes in the Air Fryer or in the microwave at 30 second intervals.

How long to cook steak in the Air Fryer?

For this recipe, 4-6 minutes is sufficient because the steak is in small pieces. For larger cuts of meat like New York Strips or Ribeye steaks, cook time is about 5 minutes per side or until desired doneness.

How do I know when the steak is done?

Use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature on one piece of steak. For medium rare steak, cook to 135 degrees. For medium doneness, cook to 145 degrees.
