  • 1.5 lbs brisket, sliced thinly
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sesame oil
  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds (optional, for garnish)
  • 2 green onions, sliced (optional, for garnish)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce, sesame oil, rice vinegar, garlic, ginger, and honey until well combined.
  2. Place the sliced brisket in a large resealable plastic bag or a shallow dish.
  3. Pour the marinade over the brisket, ensuring all pieces are well coated.
  4. Seal the bag or cover the dish and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes, or up to 2 hours for more intense flavor.
  5. Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for about 5 minutes.
  6. Remove the brisket from the marinade and shake off any excess liquid.
  7. Place the brisket slices in a single layer in the air fryer basket. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook in batches.
  8. Air fry the brisket for 8-10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the meat is cooked through and slightly crispy on the edges.
  9. While the brisket is cooking, toss the broccoli florets with a little bit of sesame oil and a pinch of salt.
  10. Once the brisket is done, remove it from the air fryer and set aside.
  11. Add the broccoli to the air fryer basket and cook for 5-7 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through, until the broccoli is tender and slightly charred.
  12. Arrange the cooked brisket and broccoli on a serving platter.
  13. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and sliced green onions, if using.
  14. Serve immediately and enjoy!

And there you have it! A quick, easy, and absolutely delicious Japanese-style brisket with broccoli, all made in the air fryer. Perfect for those busy nights when you want something tasty without spending hours in the kitchen. Enjoy, and happy cooking!
