Begin by patting the sirloin steak dry, then effortlessly slice it into bite-sized cubes.
In a bowl, combine the steak cubes with a drizzle of avocado oil, a pinch of salt, and a generous twist of pepper. Then, lovingly coat them in the melted butter, followed by a sprinkle of garlic powder and an extra dash of salt and pepper.
Preheat your trusty air fryer to a sizzling 400°F for approximately 4 to 5 minutes.
Give the air fryer basket a quick spray of avocado oil to prevent sticking.
It's time for the magic to happen! Air fry the steak bites at 400°F for a tantalizing 7-9 minutes, remembering to shake and flip them midway through. Keep an eye on their doneness to achieve your desired level of perfection.
To ensure a mouthwatering experience, utilize a meat thermometer on the largest piece to confirm the internal temperature reaches a succulent 135°F for medium-rare goodness.
Elevate the presentation by garnishing with optional melted butter and/or a sprinkle of chili flakes. For an extra burst of flavor, season with a touch of salt and pepper if desired. Serve these delectable steak bites warm.
Now, get ready to indulge! Pair these irresistible bites with the sensational Hungry Squirrel BBQ Sauce for dipping, and prepare to delight in a symphony of flavors.
