Servings: 4
Cooking Time: 15 Minutes


4 cloves garlic, minced
3 chipotle peppers in adobo, chopped
⅓ cup chopped fresh parsley
⅓ cup chopped fresh oregano
1 teaspoon ground cumin seed
juice of 2 limes
⅓ cup olive oil
1 to 1½ pounds flank steak (depending on your appetites)
tortillas and guacamole (optional – for serving)


1. Make the marinade: Combine the garlic, chipotle, parsley, oregano, cumin, lime juice and olive oil in a non-reactive bowl. Coat the flank steak with the marinade and let it marinate for 30 minutes to 8 hours. (Don’t leave the steak out of refrigeration for longer than 2 hours, however.)

2. Preheat the air fryer to 390°F.

3. Remove the steak from the marinade and place it in the air fryer basket. Season the steak with salt and air fry for 15 minutes, turning the steak over halfway through the cooking time and seasoning again with salt. This should cook the steak to medium. Add or subtract two minutes for medium-well or medium-rare.

4. Remember to let the steak rest before slicing the meat against the grain. Serve with warm tortillas,
guacamole and a fresh salsa like the Tomato-Corn Salsa below
