To be honest, the original dish is made from thin pork chops, and deep fried. My version uses charcoal steaks, and the air fryer. I think that you will enjoy them.

You can serve them as a snack, or place them on top of a steaming pile of rice for a meal… Up to you.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.

How to Make Asian Essentials: Salt & Pepper Beef Bites

Step-by-Step

  1. PREP/PREPARE
  2. Gather your Ingredients (mise en place).
  3. THE DIPPING SAUCE
  4. Whisk all the ingredients together in a small bowl, and reserve.
  5. THE BEEF
  6. Cut the charcoal steak into random pieces.
  7. Whisk the egg, with the salt and pepper, until foamy.
  8. Add the beef, thoroughly coat, and allow to rest on the countertop for 20 – 30 minutes.
  9. Add the arrowroot powder, or cornstarch to the beef, and thoroughly coat.
  10. Shake off the excess, and add to the basket of your air fryer.
  11. Set the temp to 375f (190c), and cook for 12 – 15 minutes.
  12. Chef’s Note: Let the air alone for the first 5-minutes of cooking, then shake the basket about every other minute.
  13. Increase the heat to 400f (205c), until the beef is nice and brown, about an additional 3 – 5 minutes.
  14. PLATE/PRESENT
  15. Serve while nice and warm with the dipping sauce. Enjoy.
  16. Chef’s Note: These would go just as well with a more “American” dipping sauce, such as: Honey Mustard.
  17. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
