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.
I hope you enjoy these steak fajita recipe as much as we do.

Could you cut everything up, season and then freeze it to use when you want

Hi Kelly, I haven't done that yet. My only concern would be freezing it in this marinade with the lime juice and I'm not sure how the peppers would hold up.

Hi Jude, Unfortunately, I've actually never used a jar marinade for fajitas.

Why such a small amount of bell peppers in this recipe? With 1.5 lbs of beef- this recipe should call for more than just 1 pepper in my humble opinion. But I’ll just add more when I make it
