Steak And Chips

If you live in Europe, then there is a good chance that you grew up on Steak and Fries. Or maybe your mum wanted it to sound really posh, so she would use the Belgian and French wording of Steak Frites.

Or if you grew up in the UK (like me) then you probably called it good old steak and chips.

I was very lucky growing up and thanks to family holidays I had the chance to try it in the UK, Spain, Portugal and France. Though it was always the nicest when we had it in France.

You would always get a piece of rump steak with some garlic butter and a side portion of French Fries.

You could then add on extra sides that you wanted. Often this would be onion rings or fried tomatoes. I loved both of them and it was too hard to choose a favourite.

Can You Cook Steak & Chips Together In An Air Fryer?

YES, you can. I love how delicious the flavours are when you cook steak and chips together in the air fryer.

You have the amazing juices from the steak dripping onto the fries and you have crispy homemade chips that pair perfectly with the steak.

Or if you have a Ninja Foodi you can make a Ninja Foodi version of steak and chips following the same method. I recommend you check out our Ninja Foodi Burgers recipe as this shows how to cook the meat and chips together and it will help you understand the process better.

Slimming World Steak & Chips

What I love about this steak and chips recipe is that it is healthy and ideal for when you are on a diet like slimming world but have a craving for steak and chips.

The syns in our slimming world friendly steak and chips is just from the garlic butter and the extra virgin olive oil.

You can cut this down by swapping garlic butter for garlic that has been mixed into fromage frais and placed on top instead.

Then for the extra virgin olive oil it is only 2 syns for 2 people, so just think about that for a moment, you could have steak and chips for dinner for just ONE SYN.

Isn’t that AMAZING?

Steak & Cheese Chips

You can also make steak with cheesy chips. To do this, follow our recipe and then when you remove the steak, add loads of grated cheddar cheese and cook for 2 minutes. You will have the most delicious cheesy chips or check out our air fryer cheesy chips recipe.

How To Make Steak & Chips?

air fryer steak and chips step by step

To make steak and French chips in the air fryer is incredibly simple and once you have made it, there will be no going back, and you will want to make it time and time again.

Because the rump steak takes a lot less time to cook than the chips you start by peeling, chopping and starting the cooking process of the chips first.

Plus as we use olive oil to cook it with, it can add a great flavouring to the chips before the steak enters the air fryer.

Then while the chips are cooking pound your steak with a tenderiser.

Then when your chips have just 6 minutes of cooking time left, you can add the steaks on top. Then when the steak has finished cooking in your air fryer the chips will be ready too.

The wonderful thing about making air fryer steak and chips together is that the juices of the steak dribbles down onto the chips and makes the chips taste AMAZING.

Or the quick version of cooking steak and chips in the air fryer is like this:

  1. Prep your chips and load into the air fryer basket.
  2. Air fry.
  3. Tenderise your steak and load it into the air fryer.
  4. Air fry.
  5. Turn your steak.
  6. Air fry + serve.

What To Have With Steak & Chips?

My favourite way to have steak and chips is with some air fryer grilled tomatoes. It amazes me how delicious they are and they can cook with the chips and steak if you have a bigger air fryer.

You could also add some of our air fryer frozen onion rings or our peppercorn sauce without cream.

  • Peel and chop your potatoes into French Fries style chips. Place them in a mixing bowl and season them with salt and pepper. Pour in the extra virgin olive oil and mix with your hands so that all the oil coats the chips. Place the chips in the air fryer and cook for 10 minutes at 160c/320f. Pound the steaks with a tenderiser and season with salt and pepper.
