Yes, you can cook a really good, juicy steak in the air fryer. I was surprised too! It’s quick and easy and saves you a mess of frying it in the pan or preheating the grill. Simply rub the steak with oil and seasoning and let the air fryer do the work!

Tips for making the best steak in an air fryer:

  • Pull the steak out of the fridge and let it come to room temperature before air frying.
  • After cooking, let the steak rest for about 8 to 10 minutes before serving, to let the juices redistribute in the meat. Otherwise, they will escape and your steak will be dry.
  • Choose a steak that has a good amount of marbling, meaning the fat distributed in the meat.

Can I cook frozen steak in the air fryer?

I always thaw steak completely before cooking. It is easier for me to control the results. Some chefs will never use a steak that was frozen but it always comes down to the quality of the meat. If you are following my recipe below, I recommend a fresh steak or one that is completely thawed.

How long does it take to cook a steak in an air fryer?

From my testing and experience, we got the following:

  • for medium rare, cook steak for 8 minutes
  • for medium  to medium well, cook steak for 12 minutes
  • for well done, cook steak for 14 to 15 minutes.

As with any appliance, the results may vary depending on your model. Test the recipe and adjust to your preferences.

What to serve with steak?

We enjoy steak with baked potatoes, French fries, coleslaw, onion rings, etc. Go for easy veggie sides and don’t forget garlic butter or your favorite steak sauce!

Storing leftovers:

I recommend storing leftovers in a container with a lid, in the fridge, for up to 3 days.
