Seasonings – Choose your favorite steak seasoning blend or try a Cajun-style or Tex-Mex mix. Cube steaks can be seasoned any way you like!

Variations – Make a light breading by placing one cup of flour and one cup of breadcrumbs in two bowls and a whisked egg in a third. Coat cube steaks in flour, then egg, then breadcrumbs and Air Fry as directed.
