Tri Tip Steak Cooking in an Air Fryer

The Secret Ingredient: An Air Fryer

The standout hero in my kitchen this year is, without a doubt, the air fryer. This remarkable appliance has revolutionized the way I cook steak, transforming it into an effortless task. My method? A generous brushing of melted butter, a sprinkle of Montreal steak seasoning, and precise timing with a thermometer to ensure the steak reaches its perfect temperature. The result is a steak that’s not just tender but richly flavorful, thanks to its beautiful marbling and fat content.

Complementing the steak, the asparagus brought its own fresh and flavorful presence to the plate. As a springtime vegetable, it embodies the essence of eating seasonally, something I cherish deeply. Cooking it was a breeze—just a quick sauté on the stovetop with garlic, butter, salt, and pepper.

A Match Made in Culinary Heaven

This steak and asparagus meal is a dream for those managing diabetes, boasting virtually zero carbs, which meant no bolus was necessary for me. The protein from the steak prompted a mild rise in blood sugar later, easily managed by the auto-correction features of my insulin pump.

With the air fryer’s ability to cook food faster, saving time while enhancing flavor, it’s a game-changer in the kitchen.
