Hello , everyone and welcome to another episode of Don't Keep Up with the Joneses .
It's your girl Crystal and we in the kitchen because it's time for cooking with Crystal today .
I'm going to be making a steak in my air fryer and y'all .
I'm so excited about this .
Don't forget to like comment and subscribe and let's go ahead and get into this video .
You guys .
So as you can see here , I'm just adding some pepper to my steak .
I'm gonna be keeping this real simple .
I'm gonna do salt and I'm going to do pepper .
I really want to allow the natural flavors that's in this steak , this beautiful piece of red meat that I have to come through .
I'm having some technical difficulties with my salt shaker .
It's working now .
But yeah , so I'm just gonna be adding salt and pepper and then on the end when I'm done cooking my steak , I am gonna be adding a garlic herb butter .
So that's gonna be good .
But yeah , so just make sure you generously add your salt and pepper to both sides of your steak .
And then after that , I'm going to set my air fryer , I'm putting my air fryer on the highest temperature .
Mine goes up to 410 degrees .
So , whatever the highest temperature is on your air fryer , you want to do that , 400 or 10 , whatever that is .
And I'm gonna set it for 10 minutes , even though I'm only going to be cooking my steak for about eight minutes .
And that's because I'm gonna let it , um , preheat .
So I did 11 minutes and I'm gonna let it preheat .
Now , back to my steak , I'm gonna mush in the little salt and pepper that I put on there .
And another thing you wanna do that I did is I set my steak out and let it get to room temperature .
So you wanna let your steak get to room temperature before you actually cook it .
Now it's time to go into the air fryer .
You guys , you hear that sizzle .
I love it .
If you want to spray your little grate or whatever with some pam , you can , I did not , I didn't spray it with anything and that was not an issue for me what you're gonna see when I flip this steak over halfway through .
I am going to flip the steak .
We are halfway .
So it's time to flip the steak all that .
So just a little quick lip action and it's cooking on both sides .
But I don't know , I just feel like for even cooking the way that my air fryer is set up .
I don't know , I wanted to flip it .
I felt like I should flip it , treating it like it's on a real grill or something like that .
Um , so I flipped it and I turned it a little but then just close your air fryer and let it get back to cooking and my little 8.5 minutes are up .
Now , the next thing that I'm gonna do is I'm actually going to sear my steak .
So I have some of that garlic herb butter in this pan and I just brought my steak right down on there .
I'm gonna sear each side for about 15 to 20 seconds .
Um , I didn't want to really cook the steak up more degrees .
I just wanted to get that sear on it because I like a nice beer .
So that's what I'm doing sting both sides .
Maybe I let it fear for like 25 seconds or use that .
But , oh , look at how beautiful you got .
Uh , it's looking really good but the true test is when I cut it open and see how it is .
I like my steak a nice medium to me to mid rare .
You guys here is the moment of truth .
Let me cut it open .
It's looking , yes , you guys look at this .
It's perfect .
It's perfect .
You guys that steak turned out really well .
Um , I love to have my steak cooked a nice medium to mid rare .
It wasn't overcooked at all .
So that time it was perfect for me .
If you're trying to have your steak cooked like , you know , more done , like done or well done or something like that , I would say for every degree that you want your steak to be cooked more , add an extra minute to a minute and a half in the air fryer .
But honestly , it came out juicy .
It came out good .
Oh , I love it again .
