I heard people make steaks in their air fryer and getting amazing results. I created this air fryer beef skewers recipe using beef ribs meat, but you can totally use any other cut of meat.

The best part of the air frying process is that you don’t require to use oil. Cooking is completely oil free!

What goes into Air fryer beef kebabs on a skewers

  • Beef chuck ribs, or sirloin steak will work too. Stew meat as well
  • Bell Peppers cut in 1 inch chunks
  • Onion, ct in 1 inch chunks as well
  • Sour cream. In Russia we use it a lot for marinating meats for shashlyk ( meat kabobs), it makes the meat so tender!
  • Soy sauce for a little flavor kick

How do you make air fryer beef skewers

  1.  Well, you obviously need skewers. This is 6 inch skewers i used. If you are using wooden skewers, make sure to presoak them in water for 10 minutes before using, its very important!
  2. Cut veggies and meat in about same size chunks.  Marinate beef for as long as you can wait:)
  3. Cook at 400F for 10 minutes. Try not to overcook so they don’t become dry.

I've made this a couple of times. I marinated in in the sour cream and soy sauce for 30 min. as stated. The flavor was good, but the meat a bit tough. I just made it after marinating for more than 24 hours. The difference was astounding. The meat melted in my mouth and the flavor was absolutely delicious. I can vouch for the "overnight is best" for marinating. Thanks for sharing!

I made this recipe and it was delicious. When I turned kabobs at 5 minutes, I brushed on a little steak sauce and took out at 8 min total. Used sirloin steak and the beef was done medium to medium-well, was tender and delicious. First I baked potatoes which were also excellent and served with a salad. It was my first complete dinner in the AF.

LOVE THESE!! I made these beef K-bobs tonight - exactly by your recipe. The Marinating for 30 minutes worked for very tender, flavorful meat. We will definitely be making these again and again.
