Delicious beef jerky cooked in the air fryer!
Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time2 hrs
Servings: 4


  • 1-2 lb lean steak or beef roast
  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp minced garlic
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional


  • Trim fat from steak or beef. Slice steak or beef roast in strips that are about ¼ of an inch thick and about 3-6 inches long.
  • Add sliced beef or steak to the remaining ingredients to a gallon freezer bag or airtight container and mix well. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour (preferably overnight).
  • When ready, preheat air fryer to 180 degrees Place marinated meat strips on wire racks or bottom of the air fryer cooking unit so they are not overlapping. Air fryer for about 1.5-2 hours, until you achieve the consistency you want. Less times makes for a more tender beef jerky and long will make the jerky more dry and chewy.
