It’s time for a tasty dinner with Air Fryer Korean BBQ Beef!

This post is sponsored by Pompeian Oils, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

By now most of you probably understand my love of the Air Fryer, right?  One thing we absolutely love to make in it is meals such as the Air Fryer Korean BBQ Beef.

Air Fryer Korean BBQ Beef

This meal is done by cooking the thin steak first in the air fryer and then simply mixing it with a Korean BBQ Sauce using Pompeian Oils.  It’s one of those meals that typically you would probably think of ordering it out, now though you can make it right at home.

How do you make Air Fryer Korean BBQ Beef?

To make this dish, you will want to pick up a thin sirloin or flank steak and cut it against the grain.  The slices need to be thinly sliced, in this case think bite sized chewable pieces.

It’s also best to coat the steak with cornstarch and Coconut Oil Spray.

We like to use the Coconut Oil Spray because it adds a nice subtle, sweet flavor and gives it more of a crispy finish with the cooking in the air fryer.

The flavors compliment the dish well.

This spray does not contain any artificial additives either, which makes it a great choice for the whole family.

When this spray is used there are no propellants that dispense into the air.

The key ingredient here is going to be the Korean BBQ Sauce.  I’ve adapted the recipe a bit and also use Pompeian White Wine Vinegar to add to the sauce.

This is a great addition with a crisp, clean taste and it contains 0g of sugar.

Remember to that this is just my version of Korean BBQ Sauce and what works best for our family.

I have seen others that add in Sesame Oil or Asian Pear Juice.  Feel free to add those in if you prefer as well.

This is such a delicious hearty meal for fall.  The sauce can actually be used on a variety of meats like ribs or chicken as well.

A meat of choice is short ribs, which is a great one to add this to and grill outside.

It’s a great choice for a cookout in the fall with grilled meats, plus a nice alternative to traditional bbq sauce.

    The residual heat wasn’t enough to cook the sauce. It was watery, tasted like raw garlic and vinegar – not good. I removed the bottom grate from the airfryer leaving just the flat basket, added the meat back in with the sauce, stirred and airfried for 2 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, tossing every 30 seconds. Then it was a decent base recipe to add on to!

      Not quite sure what to say on this one, b/c the sauce has to be cooked in a saucepan on the stove top unless you have a Ninja Foodi Multi-Cooker with a saute function.
