I’m a huge fan of making steak in my air fryer and I’m known for making it all kinds of ways in my Air Fryer. I’ve done ribeye to serve alongside fries and salad, steak kebabs in the air fryer, and now I present air fryer steak fajitas.

This is one of those recipes that have come in handy on out taco Tuesdays weeknights. Aside from the marinating, it’s quick and easy and clean up is a breeze. I’m sure it’s a recipe you’ll add to your dinner rotations as well.

How to make steak fajitas in your Air Fryer?

For my steak fajitas, I like to do a marinade rather than a dry rub. I like my steak pieces to be tender and full of flavor and I found that a marinade made with pineapple juice, lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, and other spices gave the best flavor. Also, pineapple juice is known to tenderize steak.

Add the marinade ingredients to steak that has been sliced against the grain. I use either flank steak or top sirloin, although I tend to prefer flank for this recipe. Flank is just pricier but either will work. Place your steak in the refrigerator and allow it to marinate for 2-4 hours.

When your ready to cook, remove your steak from the refrigerator. Slice your peppers and onions. Place in the air fryer on top of a piece of foil paper that is the size of your air fryer basket. Spray the vegetables with oil and season with a little salt and pepper. Close the air fryer basket and cook at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes.

After 10 minutes, stir the peppers and place the steak pieces on top of the peppers and onions, making sure they are evenly spread on top. Close the air fryer basket and cook for 7 minutes at 400 degrees.

Open and stir and serve over tortillas with your favorite toppings. We usually stick with cheese, cilantro, a squeeze of lime juice, and sour cream.

This is one of my favorite air fryer recipes. I added extra veggies and allowed the meat to marinate two hours. It was so tasty and tender!

I notice you say to cook the chicken with the veggies .... what about amount of time for shrimp?

Tanya

Saturday 14th of March 2020

I would add the shrimp when there is about 8-9 minutes left on the timer. That's usually how long I cook shrimp in my air fryer.

Hi Tanya Can I substitute Chicken for this recipe?

Robin

Can we swap and use Chicken instead of Steak. With this recipe?

Tanya

Monday 17th of February 2020

Hi Robin, yes you can...although I would add the chicken in the peppers at the dame time and cook start checking for done as after about 12 minutes. The chicken will take a little longer to cook than the steak in Tim his recipe.
