Welcome friends .
I'm Rose with another delicious air fryer recipe .
You don't wanna miss today , we're making juicy and flavorful rib eye steaks before you get started .
It's very important that you preheat your air fryer .
You wanna make sure that when that steak hits that basket , it's nice and hot .
And by the way , my air fryer is an Emerald brand and it's a 5.2 liter basket .
All right .
So we're gonna preheat this at 400 degrees and you wanna just let it run on empty force at least six minutes .
Another important tip before you get started is to let your steak sit out for at least 20 minutes .
So they come to room temperature , cold meat to a cold pan will cause the meat to become dry and lose all those juicy flavors .
Also , when cooking steak on a pan and you start with cold meat , it can cool off your pan not allowing it to get that nice sear .
You want a nice sear will help lock in the meat flavors and juices .
I like to start by adding a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to my steak .
So you don't need a lot and then I take a brush , brush it all on there .
You want to make sure you do both sides and also run your brush along the sides of the steak , add salt and pepper to both sides real quick .
If you're looking for a video and can't find it on my front page , be sure to go up top where it says videos and playlist .
I've got lots of videos in there for you as well .
Add a one sauce to a plate .
You could either use the hearty or original .
Either one will work just fine .
You'll also need Montreal steak seasoning , which I highly recommend because it adds a really nice flavor to it .
Now , if you , for some reason can't find it and you wish to use your own seasoning , that's perfectly fine as well as you can see , I spread my sauce out a little bit .
Now I'm gonna be adding a little bit of Montreal seasoning in there , lay your steak right on it , rub it in the sauce and flip it over .
Now , add more of your steak seasoning on top .
Yes , baby , I love to season .
All right guys .
So now I'm just gonna flip my steak over and add seasoning to this side as well and make sure to get the sides of your steaks .
You want everything completely coated a brush can also be pretty handy .
We're gonna start with our first batch of two steaks just in time , my air fryer is done preheating .
Now , when you pull out your basket , make sure not to place it directly on your countertop .
It's pretty hot and you can ruin your countertop .
I usually just place it on top of my cutting block .
Then I'm gonna go in with a little bit of olive oil and spray the bottom of my basket .
I like using this spritzer that I got through Amazon .
I'll post a link in the description below .
Try and avoid using the aerosol cans because they can damage the coating of your basket .
If you don't have a spritzer or a spray bottle , you can just use a brush to brush your olive oil in there .
The olive oil is just to help food from sticking .
We're gonna be cooking two steaks at a time because that's all my air fryer can fit and you also don't want to overcrowd things .
Your steaks will cook while you work on your site .
So it's really not a big deal .
All right , let's get these babies in .
We're gonna start by cooking our steaks on one side at 400 degrees for eight minutes .
They have been cooking for eight minutes .
Now , it's important that you come back and flip your steaks over because we're gonna continue cooking them .
Let me show you real quick what they look like right now .
Let's flip them over .
If you wish you can spray them a little bit more with olive oil .
We're gonna continue cooking on this side at 400 F for seven minutes .
In the meantime , I'm gonna chop up a little bit of fresh parsley just to add as garnish .
By the way , if you're enjoying my video so far , be sure to hit the like button and help me out by sharing this with friends .
It's been seven minutes .
We want to go ahead and remove these and put them on our cutting board .
We wanna let them rest for at least five minutes .
Do not cut right into them , allowing them to rest , will lock in more flavor and create a succulent piece of meat while they're resting .
I'm gonna add a slice of butter and garnish them with fresh parsley .
I have already started cooking my second batch and we'll go over that in just a minute .
All right friends .
So these have been resting for a while , but I want to cut into them .
So you can see what they look like when I cut in .
Now , these are going to be more of a well done to medium well and they are so juicy and tender now stick with me because they're second batch is gonna be a different cut .
All right .
My second batch here has been cooking for eight minutes on one side .
So we're gonna flip this over and we're gonna continue cooking these at 400 degrees for an additional five minutes .
All right guys , it's been five minutes now .
Take a look at these .
I smell them so good .
I'm going to also let this rest for a while , but I'm going to add my butter and my parsley .
Now , if you wanted to , you could also melt some butter with some minced garlic .
A little bit of thyme and rosemary and create your own steak gravy for it instead .
All right .
Let's go ahead and cut into these .
Oh , my gosh .
Now this is my cut here .
This is more of a medium rare to medium cut with .
I absolutely love .
Now , just a quick note that the thickness of your steak and your air fryer can make a difference .
