Steak. Air Fryer.

Yes, Steak in the Air Fryer. How could we go wrong? It was cooked perfectly. I purchased a sirloin that was about 1 1/4 inches thick. It was large enough for us to split with the possibility of leftovers for another night's dinner. The steak was moist and right at medium rare in the middle and more medium at the ends. Perfect for us!

Here are the instructions that I found on

Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper, place on a plate, and refrigerate for 2-3 days, uncovered. Flip every 12 hours or so, blotting the juices with a paper towel. You can skip it if pressed for time.

Remove the steaks from the fridge 45-60 minutes before cooking and let them sit at room temperature.

Brush the steaks with melted butter on both sides, place them on the rack of your air fryer. 
Cook at 400˚F for 15 minutes, without pre-heating, for medium doneness. 

Cook for about 1 to 2 minutes less for medium-rare and rare respectively, and 1-2 minutes more for medium-well and well done respectively. The times will need to be adjusted further if air frying steaks thicker or thinner than 1.25" thick. 

These cooking times are approximate, so use an instant-read thermometer in conjunction with the table shown here-

Remove steaks from the air fryer, wrap in foil or wax paper, and let rest for 10 minutes, then serve.
