Air Fryer, Sirloin Steaks with Dijon Butter (KETO Friendly)

Making steak in the air fryer has never been the same, whether it’s rib eye, prime rib or roast, this is a fail-safe recipe. Today, I used sirloin steak, and I made a simple dijon compound butter to go on top.



  • 2 sirloin steaks
  • olive oil
  • salt and pepper

Compound Butter;

  • 2 tablespoons room temperature butter
  • 1 scallion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (make sure it is KETO friendly, if on KETO)
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. he 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Then rub the olive oil or butter all over the steak, and season with salt and pepper.
  4. Set the steaks in the air fryer for 6 minutes, then flip and air fry for another 6 minutes.
  5. Again, per Bobby Flay, let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes.
  6. Top with the Dijon Compound Butter (instructions in note section)
  7. Plate, serve, and enjoy!


To make the Dijon Compound Butter:

Start with room temperature butter. In a small mixing bowl, add the butter, diced scallions, Dijon mustard, salt, and pepper.  Mix well.

Scoop the mixed ingredients into the center of a piece of plastic wrap (saran wrap) and then roll, it up into a log. Place in the freezer, for about 10 minutes. Then cut, and place on the steak.
