Crispy and Quick, Guilt-free Air Fried Steak Frites

Steak frites, meaning steak and fries, is a popular dish in French cuisine. It originated in Paris in the late 19th or early 20th century and quickly spread throughout France and other parts of Europe. Traditionally, the steak is pan-fried in butter and served with thin-cut fried potatoes. However, with the rise of air fryers as a healthier cooking method, this classic dish can now be made with less oil and in a fraction of the time.
