Recipe Tips

Before you make air fryer steak fries from frozen, read through these recipe tips so that your fries turn out awesome!

  • You don’t need to spray the frozen steak fries with extra oil since they usually contain oil already. However, if you want them to get extra crispy, you can lightly spray them with some avocado oil spray before placing them into the air fryer.
  • Since your brand of frozen steak fries and your air fryer will likely differ from ours, your cooking time might vary. Just keep an eye on your fries for that golden color and crispiness!
  • If you want to add (seasoning) salt or other spices to your fries, do that after you cooked the fries.

We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.

Storage Tips

Air-fried steak cut fries are best enjoyed hot and fresh.

However, if you do have leftovers, you can store them in a sealed container in the fridge. They will last for around 3-4 days.

They tend to get soft (due to the moisture) and won’t be as crispy anymore but they are still okay to eat.
