Since getting my air fryer a couple of years ago, I have been amazed with what I can cook in the air fryer. An air fryer is like a mini convection oven. This means, if you can bake, fry, or grill it- you can air fryer it. But what about ground beef? Can you make ground beef in the air fryer? The answer is YES!
Ground beef in the air fryer is simple and easy, just like cooking it on the stovetop. There are two reasons why I like to cook ground beef in the air fryer. First, cleanup is so easy. And second, its more fun!

How to Cook Ground Beef in the Air Fryer
Before I share my favorite recipes with you, we first need to know how to cook ground beef in the air fryer. Here are two things you will want to keep in mind.
1. Break your meat apart.
Using a knife or a meat grinder, gently break up the meat so that it will cook evenly and thoroughly in the air fryer. If you are breaking up the meat with a metal knife or meat grinder, do this on a plate or cutting board. Then transfer it to the air fryer basket. If you have a silicone tool that you are using, you can do this inside the air fryer basket.
2. Use a silicone spatula
Like cooking ground beef on the stove top, you will need to check on the beef occasionally to break it up further. I love to use a silicone spatula to do this. Silicone products are great for the air fryer because they won’t ruin the coating of the air fryer basket.
