Air Fryer Liver and Onions

  • Author: Jill Baker
  • Yield: Serves 3


Units Scale

1 lb. Beef Liver

1/2 Onion, sliced

Olive Oil Spray

1 tsp. Salt

Fresh Ground Black Pepper

1 tsp. Garlic Powder


  1. Wash the beef liver in cold water, pat dry and cut into 1 inch pieces. Place in a bowl.
  2. Slice the onions and add to the liver pieces in the bowl.
  3. Season the liver and onions with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Coat evenly.
  4. Place into the air fryer tray/basket in a single layer (may need to cook in several batches). Spray the top of the liver/onion mix.
  5. Cook for 12 minutes at 400º F. If not done, toss and keep cooking in 1 minute increments until done; being careful to not overcook as it can turn the liver tough, dry, and chewy. Instant read thermometer should read 165º F.
  6. Serve with chopped green onion (spring onion) or cilantro.


Adhere to your own machines instruction manual for proper cook times and food prep. A liner can be used to ensure no pieces fall through the basket/tray.

No need to soak liver in milk, but you can if you prefer!
