Air Fryer Steak Tips with Garlic Butter

  • Author: Kathleen
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1-2 servings 1x


Air Fryer Steak Tips are tender, with a perfect crust, and are super flavorful! They cook in under 5 minutes and are amazing with the three-ingredient garlic butter. Serve with some veggies and potatoes for full, easy dinner. 



Steak Tips

  • 8 ounces steak, such as Ribeye or New York Strip
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • Pinch of garlic powder
  • Pinch of onion powder
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • Pinch of ground black pepper

Garlic Butter

  • 1 tablespoon salted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried parsley


  1. Optional – Preheat the Air Fryer – You preheat an air fryer by letting it run empty for about 5 minutes so that the basket gets hot. This helps get a better crust on the steak tips, but they will still turn out great if you forget to do this step!
  2. Cube Steak – Cube the steak into 1-inch bites. You can cut off and discard any large pieces of fat or connective tissue.
  3. Season Steak Tips – Toss the steak cubes with the olive oil and spices so they are evenly coated.
  4. Air Fry – Add the coated steak tips to your air fryer (don’t overcrowd the basket) and air fry at 400 degrees F for 4-7 minutes (flipping after 2-3 minutes). The cook time will vary on your preferred steak doneness. I prefer medium-rare so cook them for 4-5 minutes.
  5. Garlic Butter – Mix up the melted butter with the garlic and parsley. Allow the steak tips to rest for 2-3 minutes before tossing in the garlic butter.
  6. Serve – Serve immediately and enjoy.
