Tips for cooking an air fryer steak
Steak that is at least 1" thick does the best. Mine were 1" and 1-½" and came out perfectly medium-rare in 10 minutes.
Allow steak to come to room temperature. Any steak, whether air fried or grilled, does best at room temperature. Let the steak sit out on the counter for 30-60 minutes.
Always reheat the air fryer. It usually needs just 5 minutes.
Make sure that the steaks are not overcrowded in the basket. This allows the air to circulate around them and cook them evenly.
Remove the steak from the basket so they do not overcook.
Allow the steaks to rest for 10 minutes to seal in the juices.
