What’s in Air Fryer Stir Fry?

MEAT: Chicken is always a healthy protein choice, but strips of leftover beef, steak bites, pork, and shrimp will go great with the broccoli and bell peppers, too! Make it vegetarian and use tofu or seitan!

SAUCE: We love this basic recipe, but there’s room for so many variations! Ready-made stir fry or teriyaki sauce saves time and can be made spicy by adding a little sriracha or some red pepper flakes!

Veggie Variations

Broccoli and bell peppers add different colors and nutrients, but feel free to toss in onions, baby corn, sliced mushrooms, cauliflower florets, and sliced water chestnuts.
