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!
