  • Air fryer



  • Preheat air fryer to 400F for 5 minutes.
  • Place cube steaks in a shallow baking dish or pan.
  • Mix together the olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, balsamic vinegar, Dijon mustard, and minced garlic. Stir to combine.
  • Pour the marinade over the cube steak. Let marinate for at least an hour in the refrigerator.
  • Remove the cube steaks from the marinade, being sure to let excess sauce drip off the steaks. Place the cube steaks in the air fryer in a single layer, working in batches if needed.
  • Air fry at 400F for 6-7 minutes, or until the cube steaks have reached an internal temperature of 145F. Be sure not to overcook as the steak will get tough.
  • Let rest for 5 minutes before slicing so the juices don't run out of the steaks.



  • You can typically find cube steak pre-tenderized at the grocery store in the meat section. 
  • Cube steak is a tougher cut of meat, so marinating it for at least an hour helps to break down the meat and create a more tender steak.
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
  • Pro Tip: Check your food as it cooks. Each air fryer runs a bit differently. Sometimes airfying is a trial and error process. Check your food as it cooks to learn your air fryer better! When cooking a new recipe or food items be sure to check your food often to help avoid over/under cooking.
