The first thing I do when making steak (I got this hint from one of Bobby Flay’s shows) let the meat rest at room temperature for AT LEAST 30 minutes.
Start by preheating the air fryer, steak is one of the few recipes, that I preheat the air fryer for. But the meat will come out better, so turn the air fryer oven’/basket on for 5 minutes at 400 degrees F.
Then rub the olive oil or butter all over the steak, and season with salt and pepper. I added some cut up rosemary over the steak.
Set the steaks in the air fryer for 6 minutes, then flip and air fry for another 6 minutes.
Again, per Bobby Flay, let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes.
