I also grabbed a Certified Angus Chuck Eye Steak (an affordable cut – that is as tender as a ribeye!) and went to town. Now – I know – that steak is pretty rare – but I can’t help it – that’s how I love it! But no worries – I’ll give you directions on how to cook your steak no matter how well done you like it!
Can you air fry steak? How to air fry steak to medium rare?
Of course! I’m hard pressed to find something you cannot air fry! What I did for this was marinate the steak ahead of time – my favorite marinade is from Plain Chicken of course – her Best Steak Marinade is to die for! She made steak for me when I went to her house – and I can’t use anything else!
After that – I just popped it in the air fryer on top of the asparagus and started her up! My rare steak was about 8 minutes – so if you want it cooked more add a minute or two for each level up (10 minutes for medium rare, 12 min for medium, etc.) – always temp your steak – it’s just easier to make sure it’s right. (my fav thermometer hands down – Thermapen! Worth every penny – great holiday gift)

Is air fryer steak good?
Hells yeah! It’s amazing!!!! Honestly – cooking steak in the air fryer isn’t any quicker than on the stove top or grill – but it’s much LESS MESSY!!! Honestly I love steak in a cast iron pan – but I always get smoke in my house and my vent doesn’t work – so it’s a smoke filled kitchen every time. With the air fryer – no smoke! OMG – it’s perfection every time!
