  1. Pulse chips in a food processor to form fine crumbs. If you don’t have a food processor, place chips in a resealable plastic bag and roll with a rolling pin. If the chip crumbs are too coarse, they will fall off during cooking.

  2. Combine flour and black pepper in a shallow bowl. Place chips and eggs in two additional separate bowls. Dip steak pieces in flour, then in egg, then in crushed chips, turning to coat all sides and pressing chips onto steak pieces. 

  3. Preheat air fryer to 400℉ according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

  4. Place steak pieces on the rack, making sure not to overcrowd. Cook 7-9 minutes until outside is golden brown and beef has reached an internal temperature of 160℉. Open halfway through and flip steak pieces or shake the air fryer basket for crispier steak bites. 


Tip: Individual models of air fryers will vary on time and temperature. Check steak pieces throughout cooking to ensure proper doneness.
