Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer Steak

Ninja Foodi Dual Zone air fryer steak recipe and review. Double air fryer so you can cook two things at one time. Steak and potatoes together is the best one pot meal ever.

Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Air Fryer Steak

Ok so now I am obsessed with this new machine!! We made Ninja Foodi Dual Zone air fryer steak and potatoes the other night and it was the bomb. I have a ton of easy Ninja Foodi recipes on my site but now I have a new version to experiment with. More to share! (affiliate links present)

Ninja Foodi Steak

Yes you can make steak in air fryer and be done but now you can cook two different things at the same time so temperatures can vary. Before it was tricky if you wanted to make our Ninja Foodi vegetables and a protein at the same time. One would get squashed or overcooked, now this solves all of that.

Yes we still have our Ninja Foodi grill that is great for grilling indoors too but I can never have too many countertop appliances y’all. If you’re new to all of this I will help you thru all of it. Here are a few tips to start out with:

If you’re here because you’re looking for what we thought of this before you buy one let me share my thoughts. Believe me, I have tried a lot of products and they don’t all pass my OH MY this is amazing meter. I only share items that make my life easier, and this is definitely one of them.

Ninja Foodi Dual Zone Review

So let’s talk about this kitchen appliance for a hot minute shall we? I talked about it a bit and one day my husband came back with it (from Costco, of course). At first the box was huge so I thought the machine was too, it’s not that big. I wasn’t sure it would be a big difference from the Cosori I already had but I love it because:

  1. Each basket is a bit smaller so things seem to cook faster, and get crispier than a larger space.
  2. It seems to preheat a bit faster than the other, probably because there’s a smaller space.
  3. I can cook two different things at different temperatures at the same time, so they’re done simultaneously.
    1. perfect when you want steak at two different “donenesses”
  4. You don’t have to clean out the initial pot to rotate in another dish after the first is done.

Just like the others you can cook frozen food in Ninja Foodi or fresh. The recipe below works with thawed but you can follow timing and temp for frozen steak in air fryer here too.

Frozen Steaks

Now the seasonings are totally up to you, but our Asian steak marinade is pretty amazing. For a quicker solution you can throw together our steak dry rub or the old fashioned backup would just be a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I’m sure you have a favorite of your own and that won’t affect anything as far as the details go.

You literally just need the meat and seasonings to get this going. If you wanted to add something completely different to the second air fryer basket here are a few suggestions that we make often with this easy beef recipe.

The list goes on and on and on……

Use this printable for what temperature to cook steak to check and see if it’s done to your liking before taking it out. Some like it still mooing like my husband and others like myself prefer for it to be medium well done. That is why the cook time will vary so much depending on your liking as well as how thick each piece is.

If you are new to using this machine it is quite easy. You can only use one side or the other, or both at the same time. You turn each side on individually with the 1 – 2 buttons. The dial will turn to all the different methods you want.

  1. Air fry
  2. Roast
  3. Reheat, dehydrate and bake
  4. Keep Warm

It doesn’t have the pressure cooker function like their other model.

Ninja Foodi Dual Air Fryer review

Ninja Dual Zone Air Fryer Recipes

Honestly I just use it to make fried foods, I mean easy air fryer recipes, but there are other functions for sure. You could dehydrate apples in it and tons of other options too. Use any and all of our air fryer recipes in this unit. Most are done in 20 minutes or less so it’s a fast way to make a complete meal.

  • For this one you’ll start by preheating one or both sides of your Foodi dual zone to air fry. Set to 400 degrees F. Allow to heat up for 5 minutes.
  • Season steaks as you’d like on both sides. Lay inside baskets, one per side. Close drawers and cook for a total of 12 minutes (timing will vary depending on how well done you want it to be).
  • I like to flip each one over after 6 minutes, half way, but isn’t absolutely necessary.
  • Remove, cover to keep warm, and allow to rest for 10 mintues. Top with a pat of seasoned butter and enjoy.
  • ** If you want to put 1 steak on 1 side and potatoes on the other you can do that too. Preheat to 400 still on both sides. Cube potatoes, wrap in paper towels to dry.
    • Toss with olive oil and seasonings to coat.
    • Cook 10-12 minutes tossing 3 x throughout time until they are perfectly fork tender.

Top with a pat of garlic butter and enjoy! Now jump to recipe below and get started friends.

Use the timing if you have something other than a New York Strip which was used here. They might be slight but we have cooked others so if you want to cook a:

Where is the video showing it cooking in the unit? I don't believe you cooked it in there.
