If you’re intimidated by the grill, these air fryer steak bites are the way to go. So easy and they come out perfect every time!


  • 11.5 pounds top sirloin steak
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt & pepper
  • 2 tsp brown sugar
  • 12 Tbsp butter
  • dried parsley


  1. Cut top sirloin into bite-sized pieces. I usually cut them in half lengthwise and then 4 times across to make 8 cubes per steak and place into bowl.
  2. In a small bowl mix garlic powder, salt and pepper and brown sugar.
  3. Pour over steak and stir until well coated. 
  4. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees.
  5. Add steak and cook 4 minutes. Check temperature and remove or cook an additional minute.
  6. Remove from air fryer and place in a bowl. Add 1-2 Tbsp butter and stir to coat steak bites as it melts. Sprinkle with desired seasonings like dried parsley, more salt and garlic powder etc!


Feel free to customize the seasonings. You can add cayenne pepper for spice, try a steak seasoning blend or increase the garlic powder. 

When adding butter at the end you can sprinkle with salt, parsley or other seasonings.

If you’re worried about overcooking, check at 3 minutes!
