Air-Fryer Korean Steak Tips


As kitchen gadgets go, the Air Fryer has turned out to be incredibly popular. So much so that a prestigious  kitchen recipe and equipment expert, "America's Test Kitchen", has pumped out a fabulous new cookbook called "Air Fryer Perfection". While there is no question that air fryers turn out the most amazing French fries and tater tots, this cookbook clearly demonstrates the air fryer's prowess at turning out fantastic entrees, as well. This recipe calls for sirloin tips (also called flap meat). Purchase it as a whole steak and then cut it into uniform cubes.


1 tablespoon sesame oil

1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated

1 garlic clove, minced

4 teaspoons honey

2 tablespoons gochujang (if your store does not carry this, use sriracha)

1 teaspoon soy sauce

1-1/2 pounds sirloin steak tips, cut into 2-inch cubes

1 tablespoon toasted sesame seeds

3 scallions sliced thin on bias


  1. In a large glass bowl, combine oil, ginger and garlic. Microwave mixture for 30 seconds. Then whisk in honey, gochujang and soy sauce until smooth. Add steak tips, toss to coat and let bowl sit at room temperature for 10 minutes.
  2. Arrange steak tips in air-fryer basket, spaced evenly apart. Place basket in air-fryer and cook meat at 400º for 7 minutes. Open fryer basket and flip sirloin tips over. Cook for another 7 minutes at 400º.
  3. Arrange steak tips on a serving platter, then sprinkle with sesame seeds and scallions.

A NOTE FROM GROGS: Unfortunately, most items you buy have oven cooking instructions but not air fryer instructions. Here's an easy way to convert oven cooking instructions to your air fryer. Using the oven instructions, reduce cooking temperature by 25º and reduce cooking time by 20%. Remember to always flip the food halfway through.

Wine pairing: Zinfandel
