How to Make Air Fryer Steak

Airfryer Steak

Many of you will probably wonder, why would you ever cook a steak in the air fryer? But take our word for it, you’ll be amazed at how easy and simple it is.

This is a great idea specially during colder months when all you think is going to your deck to fire up the grill and then you remember to talk yourself out of it because well, its Winter.

The level of doneness will make or break a steak. Don’t ever cook a steak to well done. Unless of course, you like eating dry and tough meat. Any more than medium doneness will come out tough. We highly recommend using a thermometer for cooking steaks to check to see if they are done.

A perfect steak starts with the right meat. Go for steak cuts with extra fat and marbling. It will taste much better than leaner cuts of beef. When it comes to flavor, simple is better.  You don’t need exotic ingredients to cook a perfect steak.

Every air fryer and brand is made differently and the times below might not work for your air fryer. Please check the instructions manual that come with your air fryer. Most of them these days have instructions and a guide to go by for cooking meat.

When it comes to nutritional information, keep in mind that as with any recipe it varies greatly so your nutritional content depends on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
