I love my air fryer. I’ve been experimenting with all different recipes. One I’ve done a few times already is London Broil. London Broil roast is like a big lean steak, that’s how I see it. It’s got very little fat. It’s usually about 12 inches long and 2 inches thick. When it’s cooked properly it can come out delicious. It’s a great lean protein. It’s perfect on it’s own, or used in a salad, quesadilla, tacos you name it!
The meat can get a little tough, so you want to try and cook it to a lower temperature and then watch it from there. Give this London Broil a try and you won’t regret it!
