Frozen Steak Fries In Air Fryer

I love air fryer steak and it wouldn’t be the same without air fryer steak fries to serve alongside it. I grew up on steak and chips or fries as Americans would call it.

We had a meat factory in a village close to our local seaside town. It supplied many supermarkets with their meat and on a Saturday morning they would open it to the public. You could then queue up on a Saturday and buy quality meat at factory prices.

My mum and dad would buy the sirloin steak in bulk and load it into the freezer ahead of steak dinners.

Many years later, that same meat factory Dominic worked at and I would love that he could pay workers rates for the steak and we could have our freezer loaded with amazing cuts of beef.

There would be beef topside, beef silverside and plenty of beef sirloin ready for homemade steak dinners.

Dominic would cook the steak while I would cook steak fries in the deep fat fryer and then I would make a delicious mustard steak sauce in a pan to serve with it.

I just wish back then we had an air fryer. Because I would cook our favourite steak fries in the air fryer instead. It would save a lot of calories and they would taste amazing.

That was back in 2003 and the year we got married and now steak dinners taste just as good, but they are made with kitchen gadgets.

We will use the soup maker for a delicious cheese sauce, then the instant pot for perfect instant pot frozen steak, then the air fryer will work its magic with air fryer frozen steak fries.

Plus, as well as our free newsletter, we also have a free air fryer mini course. It is ideal for air fryer beginners or those that want to get more confident with their air fryer. The free course runs for 5 days with a new lesson delivered each day to your inbox.

Can You Air Fry Frozen Steak Fries?

Yes, you can cook frozen steak fries from frozen in the air fryer. They are fantastic and have an amazing crispy texture to them.

Though they are not as easy to air fry compared to regular air fryer frozen French fries because they are parboiled and frozen with less oil and need more effort making with them.

Air Fryer Oven Steak Fries

However, I don’t recommend air fryer oven steak fries. I have the Power Air Fryer Oven and do love it, but I don’t love it for steak fries.

It is like oven baking your fries and they are just not as good.

They lack that crispy texture that the regular air fryer basket we use brings. If you have the choice please use an air fryer basket as they will taste the best.

Reheat Steak Fries In Air Fryer

If you would like to reheat steak fries in the air fryer then you can! We have created a fantastic post showing you how to reheat fries in the air fryer and I recommend a read.

We also have a guide showing you how to reheat steak in the air fryer if you have spare steak too.

How Long To Cook Frozen Steak Fries In Air Fryer?

Air fryer frozen steak fries take JUST 18 minutes at 180c/360f from frozen. This is based on ½ a large bag of steak fries.

I wouldn’t recommend cooking more than 700g of frozen steak fries at once because you will have an overcrowding problem and your fries will lack a crispy texture.

Crispy. Note that compared to other brands of frozen fries steak chips are meant for the oven and take longer to get crispy. Though they will be fully cooked at 13 minutes if you are not interested in them being crispy.
