Air Fryer Beef Jerky Recipe

Air Fryer Beef Jerky Recipe

Jerky is a portable, chewy snack you can easily make in your air fryer. This version has a savory teriyaki flavor and a bit of heat, but feel free to reduce the pepper flakes.




  • 1 beef flank steak (1 ½ to 2 lbs.)
  • ⅔ cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • ⅔ cup Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 3 tsp. coarsely ground pepper
  • 2 tsp. onion powder
  • 2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 ½ tsp. crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. liquid smoke

1. Trim all visible fat from steak. Freeze, covered, 30 minutes or until firm. Slice steak along the grain into long ⅛-in.-thick strips.

2. Transfer to a shallow dish. In a small bowl, whisk remaining ingredients; add to the beef. Turn to coat. Refrigerate, covered, 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

3. Preheat air fryer to 350°. Drain beef, discarding marinade. In batches, arrange beef strips in single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until meat reaches 165°. Reduce heat to 175°. Cook until desired texture is achieved, 1 ½-2 hours.

4. Remove from air fryer; cool completely on wire racks. Using paper towels, blot any beads of oil on jerky. For best quality and longer storage, store jerky, covered, in refrigerator or freezer.
