The air fryer is just the thing to quickly cook strips of steak for this beef taco recipe, served with a tomato and chilli dressing. Feel free to riff on the herbs – basil is great, but you might be a fan of the traditional coriander. It makes 8 tacos, so it’s ideal for sharing.



  • 500g/1lb 2oz rump or sirloin steak, cut into strips or small chunks
  • 1 tsp vegetable oil
  • 1 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 lime, juice only
  • 8 small soft tortilla wraps
  • lime wedges, to serve
  • pomegranate seeds, to serve (optional)

For the tomato and basil dressing

  • handful fresh basil
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 red chilli, seeds removed, chopped
  • handful cherry tomatoes, finely chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper



  1. Preheat the air fryer to 200C.

  2. Coat the steak in the oil, Cajun seasoning and lime juice. Air-fry the steak for 6 minutes then shake the air fryer basket and cook for a further 2 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, to make the dressing, combine all the ingredients in a bowl.

  4. Wrap the tortillas in foil and add to the air fryer for 2 minutes to warm through. Alternatively, char them over a gas hob.

  5. Add the steak to the tortillas and top with the dressing. Serve with lime wedges to squeeze over. If you like, sprinkle over some pomegranate seeds for a fresh, juicy contrast.
