Make this into steak bites - slice into small, bite-sized pieces. Brown for several minutes in the skillet until cooked to desire doneness. They should cook pretty quickly and not require baking time because the pieces are so small.
To make the steak bites in the air fryer - cook at 400 for 10-16 minutes, flipping every few minutes.
