What Does Air Fried Brisket Taste Like?

Air fried brisket is very similar to brisket that is cooked on a rotisserie or cooked on a barbecue.

We are not using a smoker, so it is not like smoked brisket.

But air fryer beef brisket is much better than oven baked, thanks to the crisp that the air fryer adds to it.

How To Cook Beef Brisket In Air Fryer

Brisket – The brisket we used came from our local butchers and you can do the same. I find a quality butchers cut of brisket is much better than supermarket bought. You can also go with what size will fit in your air fryer. For our air fryer brisket recipe we are using a 1200g which is 2.6lbs.

Oil – A little extra virgin olive oil is all you need in this recipe. You are smothering the outside and then adding seasoning. This achieves two things. It makes the outside of the brisket crispy like the barbecue and also makes the seasoning stick to the oil and give a wonderful herb texture.

Seasoning – There is nothing worse than an under seasoned beef brisket. I recommend that you add salt, pepper, thyme, basil, parsley, and rosemary. Or you can make it Brazilian by adding some garlic seasoning.

Then for the kitchen gadgets that we have used in our beef brisket air fryer recipe, it has just been our Cosori Air Fryer. We have this one and its wonderful for many types of air fryer recipes.
