What Is The Best Cut For Air Fryer Steak Tips

Choosing the right cut of steak is the first step to steak success. Select cuts, such as ribeye, sirloin,  New York strip, or filet mignon for the best results. These cuts are marbled with the right amount of fat, which ensures a succulent and flavorful result.

The amount of fat in your cut not only provides incredible taste but also ensures that the steak remains tender and juicy, even in the high-heat environment of the air fryer. This perfect balance of fat and meat is very important to achieve the perfect steak in the air fryer.
