How to cook air fryer beef and broccoli

I like to separate broccoli into small florets first. It help with the cooking time plus my kids love when broccoli is cooked in mini pieces.

Broccoli needs to be fresh and not frozen, I didn’t cook with frozen yet so if you have an experience with it please let me know how did it turn out!

I do have a recipe for frozen french fries in the air fryer though!

For this specific recipe you can use a tough cut of meat. It will be soft when cooked because we are going to slice it really thin.

I made this dish with two different beef cuts- round top and stew meat. Make sure to cut all the mat pieces against the grain for the best texture .

I recommend to cook this beef air fryer beef and broccoli in the special air fryer pan instead of the air fryer basket .

That way you will get most of the flavor from the sauce. Otherwise it will all drip through the basket to the air fryer bottom .

It has promise, the only thing is the marinade is much too salty. Would be best with low sodium soy sauce. Next time I’ll know.

Looks like a great recipe but your ad covers half the instructions (the right half) so I couldn't figure it out. The ad seems unstable and sometimes flashes off of the recipe then back on again. It's too bad.
