  1. Pulse fennel seeds, rosemary, and red pepper flakes in a spice grinder, food processor, or blender to coarsely grind spices.
  2. In a small bowl, combine spice mixture with thyme, 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  3. In a large bowl, coat steak cubes with olive oil. Then add the spice mixture to the bowl and toss until the steak cubes are well coated.
  4. Clean mushrooms with a damp paper towel and cut stems even with the bell.

  6. Place steak bites and mushrooms in an air fryer, being sure not to crowd. Cook for 8 minutes at 400 degrees F, turning halfway through cooking time. Remove steak bites and mushrooms from air fryer and tent with foil, allowing steak to rest for 2 to 3 minutes.
