Like , what can't this thing ?
Do I have cooked bacon in it ?
I have made burgers in here .
But this one guys , this took me by surprise air frying steak just might be my new favorite way of cooking it .
Cleanup is a breeze .
It's so quick to do and it comes out perfectly cooked every single time .
But there are a few specific steps that you'll wanna make sure and follow that .
I'm gonna go over here with you today .
The first thing you'll wanna do is start preparing your steak .
And as you'll see the method that we're using can apply to any cut of meat that you wish from filet mignon to rib eye steaks , they'll all turn out great as you always do .
When cooking steak , you wanna bring the meat to room temperature , it's best if you let the steak sit for at least 30 minutes or up to an hour before cooking it while that's resting , preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees .
This step is also extremely important since we want to add our room temperature steak to a very hot air fryer in order to get that crusty edge once the steak has reached the correct temperature dab off any excess moisture with a paper towel .
This liquid layer will prevent a crispy crust from forming while cooking .
Next , we're going to liberally salt and pepper all sides of the steak .
I like to use coarse ground salt and black pepper for texture , but you can always use whatever you have on hand .
And when I say liberal , I mean , liberally coated , you want every inch of that steak to be coated in this salt and pepper .
And if you're feeling adventurous , you can even add on a little dash of garlic powder .
I like to top my steaks with a delicious garlic herb butter at the end .
So I avoid the garlic powder , but you can always add it on if you wish once the steaks are prepared , place them in a single layer in the air fryer , paying close attention .
So none of the edges touch , cook the steaks for approximately 10 minutes for every inch of thickness .
These rib eyes were about one inch so I'll cook them for 10 minutes .
The filets were a little over an inch and a half .
So I'll start to check them after about 15 flip the sticks over halfway through cooking during the last few minutes of cooking , begin checking the internal temperature with a meat thermometer .
For rare .
You'll want 120 to 130 F .
Medium rare is 130 to 135 medium is 1 35 to 1 45 and medium .
Well , is 145 to 155 F .
Remove the steaks as soon as they reach the correct temperature .
So they do not continue cooking in the air fryer , serve them immediately with a garlic or butter or other fun toppings such as sauteed mushrooms or caramelized onions .
Oh , my God .
That is good with that crispy and crusty exterior .
That juicy perfectly cooked interior guys .
I don't know any other way .
That's as quick and easy to cook steak than in your air fryer .
But I cannot wait to hear what you think .
