Slow Cooked Beef Brisket in Air Fryer
Ok here we go my friends. I have a quick step by step here but you can print the recipe card at the bottom too.
- Place brisket in preheated air fryer, fat cap side up, and cook at 350° for 30 minutes.
- The best way to wrap the brisket is to place two pieces of foil that cross over each other.
- Pour in broth. Fold up the sides so that the beef stock / broth will not leak out.
I am currently working on the “other brisket”, corned beef brisket and will share that very soon as well in case you want to make both. St. Patricks Day just isn’t right without either one of these with air fryer cabbage on the side.

Start in the Instant Pot
Finish in the Air Fryer
Cut the roast in half, prep, and keep in the refrigerator overnight. This allows the seasonings to permeate the meat and prepares it for cooking.
Cook in advance, slice, and keep covered in the refrigerator for up to 5 days to add to all kinds of delish dishes like these brisket nachos! Freeze slices between sheets of parchment paper for up to 8 weeks.
How to Cut Corned Beef
You always want to cut corned beef against the grain. When slicing, look for the thin lines of muscle fiber running through the meat, then slice perpendicular to them.
Cutting against the grain shortens the muscle fibers, which will make the meat easier to chew. Thinner slices will also be more tender than thicker ones.
