What You Need to Make Asian Beef and Veggies in the Air Fryer

This recipe is filled with ingredients that are packed with flavors! There are two parts, the beef & vegetables and the marinade ingredients. For the beef and vegetables, you need:

  • 1 lb sirloin steak, cut into strips
  • 1/2 onion, sliced
  • 1 medium red pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas

For these ingredients, feel free to adapt them to your preferences. After the ingredients are prepared, you will add them to the marinade. For the marinade, you need:

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh ginger, grated
  • 1/4 teaspoons red chili flakes
  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup rice vinegar
  • 1 teaspoons sesame oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Optional: 1 tsp Chinese 5 spice

How to Make Air Fryer Asian Beef and Veggies

Prepare the marinade ingredients in either a bowl or Ziploc bag. I recommend using the Ziploc bag. This will make it easier to mix the ingredients together (you can simply seal the bag and shake it), and it will be easier to marinate the beef and vegetables.

Once the marinade ingredients are all mixed together, place the steak and vegetables inside and marinate for at least 1 hour.

When you are ready to cook the beef and veggies, preheat the air fryer at 400°F/204°C for 5 minutes. Spray the air fryer basket with avocado oil. Then, using tongs, take the meat and veggies out of the marinade and place inside the air fryer basket. Discard the marinade.

Cook in the air fryer at 400°F/204°C for 8 minutes.  You don’t need to stir the meat and veggies.

Serve with 2-3 cups of cooked rice, 3 sliced scallions, and 2 tablespoons of sesame seeds.

Freezer Option

This is such a great meal because you can prepare and freeze it for later use. First, combine the beef, veggies, and the marinade together in a Ziploc bag. Then date and place the meal in the freezer.

When you are ready to cook the meal, place the bag in the refrigerator and let it defrost for 24 hours. Then proceed with the cooking instructions for the air fryer! Now, you can enjoy this meal anytime you want!

    Thank you for this recipe, everyone loved it! Next time I will double the marinade and use half as sauce (hubby always wants sauce). Quick and easy, and the flavor was great. You were right didn’t even have to stir it, it’s a keeper.
