Get ready for a delicious meal with Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice!
This is a sponsored post; however, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
As soon as I made Air Fryer Chicken Fried Rice, I knew my next creation would be Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice. Guess what?
They are both so good, I can’t decide which one I like the best!
This time I decided to take it up a notch or two by adding Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs at the end of the cooking time. This Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice turned out perfectly with this addition.
I actually keep Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs on hand quite a bit, I love to use them in this Chicken Pad Thai as well. That’s one we add to our menu quite a bit.
I add Asian inspired meals to our menu often because being gluten-free, I typically have to make those at home as opposed to going to a restaurant.
What type of beef should you use for Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice?
Beef Fried Rice can be made with either flank steak or skirt steak. I happen to love skirt steak the best, it just has a bit more beef flavor than flank steak.
I also tend to like the skirt steak texture more than flank; however, both are perfect for this.
How should you cook the skirt steak or flank steak?
First, when cutting skirt steak or flank steak, be sure to cut it against the grain. This way it cuts through some of the fibers of the steak making it a bit easier to eat.
When cooking the skirt steak or flank steak in the air fryer, first cut it and then for this recipe you only need about 1/2 a pound of beef. Since this is typically bought by the pound, I cut and save the remaining portion in the freezer to use later in another meal like fajitas.
Once you have the steak cut, place it in the air fryer basket and cook on 390 degrees for 5 minutes, then turn to the other side and cook for an additional 5 minutes.
After the steak is cooked, I remove it and place it in the foil pack with the remaining ingredients to continue on making the beef fried rice.
Tips for Making Beef Fried Rice:
Great Day Farms Hard-Boiled Eggs are the perfect addition, simply add in two crumbled hard-boiled eggs within the last 2 minutes of cook time and stir them into the rice.
This gives an additional boost of protein too.
When adding in the soy sauce, start with 4 tablespoons and add more from there to get to the desired amount and taste that you prefer. This prevents it from being too salty for your taste.
It’s also best to use cold rice when making Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice, so it’s perfect to make your rice ahead and then use it later in the evening for dinner.
Now, are you ready to enjoy a delicious meal? It’s time to make this Air Fryer Beef Fried Rice.

- Line the air fryer basket with foil. Remember not to cover the entire basket to be sure air is still able to flow. I typically roll it up on the side.

Remember that many times air fryers work differently, so if needed add a little bit longer or shorter cook time. Checking it at 5 minutes will help you determine if yours needs to cook an additional 5 minutes.
