ninja foodi recipes

I have two ways to make this Ninja Foodi steak and mashed potatoes. You can use foil as you see here, or just lay your t-bone right on top of your side dish! It’s one of our favorite Ninja Foodi pressure cooker and air fryer recipes.

I know you love this combo right??

How can you resist both potatoes and beef together. I mean…’s my husband’s favorite.

If you too are obsessed with your Ninja Foodi pressure cooker air fryer machine, here are a few resource to start with:

  1. You can bookmark our Ninja air fryer recipes page, we add to that weekly.
    1. Here’s a printable air fryer cook times chart here for your fridge.
    2. Be sure to save this link to the easy Instant Pot recipes too. You can use any of those in your pot too.
  2. Grab our favorite Foodi cookbook here, and this set of wooden utensils work great so your pot doesn’t get scratched!
  3. Then join our Ninja Facebook group where you can share and find more ideas you’ll love. We have an air fryer page that shares daily ideas too.

If you need to know how to cook frozen meat in a pressure cooker, we have information on that. NO, you aren’t the only forgetful one. 😉

This is the base of what you will need here. The type of steak is up to you but I happened to have 2 t-bone on hand.

You’ll want to have your machine ready with the air fryer basket taken out.

You will use the pressure cooker lid which is the one that isn’t attached for the first step so get that out too.

Ninja Foodi steak and potatoes

  1. Steaks – we used 2 large t bone
  2. 5 large or 6 small to medium potatoes
  3. Broth – I had chicken on hand so that is what I added
    1. you could use beef or vegetable broth too
    2. think about the flavor you’d like to incorporate into your mashed potatoes for this
  4. Garlic salt
  5. Salt
  6. Pepper

Needed for this homemade steak dry rub of ours

  • Salt
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • Chili powder
  • Brown sugar

Feel free to use a jarred steak rub if you prefer, or use ours which is excellent.

diced potatoes

To make your pressure cooker mashed potatoes you’ll want to dice them about this size. I really like leaving the skins on for texture and because they’re great for you.

  • Just slice the potato in half lengthwise.
  • Then put one half on the cutting board with the flat / cut side down
  • Slice it twice lengthwise so there’s three equal sized pieces
  • Dice it this way into smaller pieces

You want them to be the same size so they cook evenly and get nice and tender. 6 minutes works well for a pot that will serve about 6 people as a side dish.

What can I add to mashed potatoes?

  1. Sour cream
  2. Butter
  3. Bacon bits
  4. Chives
  5. I usually don’t need liquid because I leave the broth in there after they’re cooked but if they need to be thinned out, milk works great.
steak rub

Now for your steaks. You’ll want to mix together the ingredients for your dry rub and press it on to both sides. Pick it up and allow the excess to fall off. 

  1. Either place them right on top of the diced potatoes in your Ninja Foodi after you’ve added the broth and seasonings.
  2. Or you can use a piece of aluminum foil in between the steak and mashed potatoes to keep the flavors separate.
  3. I’ve done both of these and they’re both fantastic.

If you have a Ninja Foodi grill you won’t be able to make this unfortunately. It doesn’t have a pressure cooker function but you could grill steaks and then make air fryer baked potatoes!

pressure cooker mashed potatoes

Here are the basic steps to follow 

  • Mix together steak rub and press on both sides of meat, shaking off excess
  • Dice potatoes and put them into your multi cooker
  • Pour in your broth and seasonings for mashed potatoes
  • Lay your steak on top or put a piece of foil with edges folded up in between the steak and potatoes
  • Cook on high pressure for 6 minutes with a 2 minute natural release, then quick release rest of steam
  • Take steak off and out, pour potatoes into bowl and add mix ins for mashed potatoes, keep warm
  • Put steak(s) into air fryer basket and close lid, do not overlap the meat for best results

Air crisp at 400 degrees for 5 minutes for perfect medium steak.


If you want to make just the meat you can follow our air fryer steak post. We wrapped these in bacon and they turned out incredibly awesome served with air fryer mushrooms!

Want more one pot dish Instant Pot recipes? We have over 100 on our site and they are interchangeable. It doesn’t really matter what brand of pressure cooker you have, they’ll all work.

  • The beauty of the Foodi though is you can add an extra layer of melted cheese or crunch to your fried chicken with NO oil involved.

  • Put diced potatoes into pot with broth and garlic salt, pepper, and 1/4 tsp salt.
  • Mix together brown sugar, rest of salt, garlic powder, chili powder and paprika in a bowl. Sprinkle over top and bottom of steaks, press down so they're well coated, shake off excess.
  • Place steaks directly on top of potatoes or if you don't want potatoes to have brown sugar transfer make a "boat" out of 2 pcs. of foil and rest steaks inside that and then on top of potatoes.
  • Close pressure cooker lid and set to high pressure for 6 minutes followed by a 2 minute natural release. Then release rest of pressure.
  • Take steaks out, pour potatoes into a bowl so you can make mashed potatoes. Add sour cream, butter, bacon bits, etc…as you would normally make them.
  • Rinse out inside of pot, put back into machine with air fryer basket inside. Place 1-2 steaks inside, ours only fit 1 at a time as you don't want them to overlap.
  • Close air crisp lid and press air crisp 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove and allow to rest 5 minutes before slicing.
  • Serve together.
