Air Fryer Chicken Fried Steak is a quick and easy recipe to make. There’s very little prep work, it doesn’t leave a big mess, and you can have dinner on the table for your family in less than half an hour! It uses cube steak, which is an inexpensive cut of meat that grills up nicely every time.

Pro Tips:

I find it better not to flip the steaks during cooking to prevent losing any breading. They already cook pretty evenly in the air fryer.

Want to give your steaks a little extra kick? You can add some red pepper flakes or extra pepper to the flour mixture.

Make sure you spray the breaded steaks generously with the avocado oil so that they will brown up while cooking.

    1. I think it’s just that it’s shelf stable in smaller cartons to be able to keep on hand. I haven’t tested it but I think it would work with regular almond milk as well.
