  • 4 Cubed Beef Steaks
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • 1 large Egg
  • ½ cup Buttermilk
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
  • Olive Oil Spray

For the Gravy

  • 2 tablespoons Butter
  • 2 tablespoons All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper freshly cracked
  • Salt to Taste


  1. Season the cubed beef steaks, generously with salt and pepper and set aside.

  2. In a shallow bowl combine the egg with buttermilk and a pinch of salt and whisk well until smooth.
  3. In a separate shallow bowl mix together all-purpose flour, garlic and onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and salt.
  4. Taking one seasoned cubed steak at a time, dip it first into flour mixture then into the buttermilk-egg mixture, and then finally back into flour mixture. Repeat with the remaining cubed streaks.

  5. Lightly grease the air fryer basket with olive oil spray and place the prepped cubed streaks in it.

  6. Air fry at 400F for 4 minutes. Flip and continue to air fry at 400F for another 4 minutes. 8 minutes in total. Repeat with the remaining streaks.
  7. While the steaks are cooking it is time to make the gravy. Add the butter and flour to a sauce pan.

  8. Cook over medium heat till the butter is melted and the raw flavor of the flour is gone. About 1 to 1½ minutes.

  9. Whisk in the milk, salt, black pepper. Keep whisk continuously over medium-high heat, until the mixture begins to thicken.

  10. Pour the gravy over the air fried chicken fried steaks and serve immediately.
