  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder

  2. Season the beef with the salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Stir it a bit with a wooden spoon.
  3. Cook in the air fryer at 400°F for 5 minutes. Stir it around.
  4. Continue to cook until cooked through and no longer pink, 3-5 more minutes.
  5. Crumble the beef up using a wooden spoon. Remove the basket and discard any fat and liquid left behind. Use the beef in your favorite ground beef recipe.
