4 Best Meat Dishes Using an Air Fryer

 When you think of meat dishes and low-carb, you likely go straight to the idea of baking or grilling the meat. You may never think of frying because, in traditional methods, frying means using carbs of some kind. The truth is, there are many ways to create meat entrees using an air fryer. If you have never considered what an air fryer can do for you and your meat dishes, consider these options.





Carb Free Fried Chicken


Carb-free fried chicken is easier to make than you think. Prepare the chicken as you would traditionally and simply replace the traditional bread-like coating with a carb-free option. There are many on the market, but one of the easiest to find is pork rinds. Simply run them through the food processor until they are dust and coat the chicken like you would with any other coating. Fry in the air fryer and you have the traditional meat dish without the carbs and oil. 


Honey Ginger Salmon


Salmon is an item that you may love to have, but think is impossible when it comes to getting crispy skin like you would in a pan-fried option. You can still get that crispy skin in low carb and the healthy way with the air fryer. Just put the salmon in the air fryer for 8 minutes. Remove and add the garnish along with a nice low-carb side dish like balsamic Brussel sprouts and cauliflower rice.


Air Fried Steak


Steak is something that you may not think belongs in an air fryer, but it can work out very well. Prepare the steak as you normally would. Place the steak in the air fryer for 14 minutes for rare, and 18 minutes for medium. You will need to keep in mind that you will need the extra-large air fryer for this meal. 


Shredded Pork Dinner


You can do a lot with a well-shredded pork loin. It can go into carnitas, tacos, and even soups. You can do this in the air fryer easily. Just dress the pork as you normally would before you oven bake it or place it in a slow cooker. Place the loin on Medium for 25 minutes. 


These are just a few of the options available to you. You can expand on these options as you learn how your air fryer works. You can also try different foods in the air fryer to see how they create a crispy option for you that you may be missing with your low-carb options.
