Air Fryer Oven Beef Jerky

Using your air fryer oven makes whipping up a big batch of jerky as easy as 1-2-3. All it takes is a few ingredients and some patience. Make sure to cut your beef paper thin or plan on a longer drying time. I find it helpful to freeze the beef for an hour for easy slicing. Refrigerate any that is not consumed in 3 days.

1 pound of jerky


  • 4 pounds London broil, thinly sliced and fat removed

  • 2 tablespoons jerky seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons cure

  • 2 teaspoons cure


  1. Place beef, jerky seasoning, and 2 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons cure in a large bowl. Massage beef with your hands until evenly combined. Cover and refrigerate, 8 hours to overnight.

  2. Preheat the air fryer to 160 degrees F (70 degrees C). Place beef slices on the rack, making sure none are overlapping.

  3. Air fry for 3 hours. Open the air fryer and let beef sit for 1 hour for final drying and cooling. Store in an airtight container.

Cook's Note:

Four pounds of meat yields approximately 1 pound of finished jerky.
