This delightful Japanese-inspired dish combines tender beef with the freshness of tomatoes and the comforting taste of potatoes. Cooked to perfection in an air fryer, it's a healthy and tasty meal that's perfect for a family dinner. Let's get cooking!


  • 4 Beef Tenderloin steaks
  • 4 medium Tomatoes, chopped
  • 4 medium Potatoes, peeled and cubed
  • 2 tablespoons Soy Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Mirin
  • 1 tablespoon Sake
  • 1 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon Ginger, grated
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Fresh Parsley or Shiso leaves for garnish


  1. Marinate the Beef: In a bowl, combine the soy sauce, mirin, sake, minced garlic, and grated ginger. Add the beef tenderloin steaks to the bowl and ensure they are well-coated with the marinade. Cover the bowl and let the beef marinate in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare the Potatoes: Preheat the air fryer to 180°C (350°F). Toss the cubed potatoes with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Place the potatoes in the air fryer basket and cook for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through to ensure even cooking.
  3. Cook the Beef: Once the potatoes are done, remove them from the air fryer and set aside. Place the marinated beef tenderloin steaks in the air fryer basket. Cook the steaks at 200°C (400°F) for about 8-10 minutes, turning halfway through, until they reach your desired level of doneness.
  4. Prepare the Tomatoes: While the beef is cooking, lightly sauté the chopped tomatoes in a pan over medium heat. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook until they are just softened.
  5. Assemble the Dish: Arrange the cooked potatoes and sautéed tomatoes on a serving platter. Place the cooked beef tenderloin steaks on top of the vegetables. Garnish with fresh parsley or shiso leaves for a burst of color and flavor.

There you have it—a beautiful and healthy Japanese-inspired meal that's perfect for sharing with your loved ones. Enjoy the tender beef, fresh tomatoes, and crispy potatoes together, and savor the flavors of this delightful dish. Happy cooking!
