Air Fryer Recipes

Air Fryer Steaks with Garlic Butter


  • 2 boneless steaks (e.g., ribeye, sirloin, New York strip)
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • Fresh herbs (such as rosemary or thyme), optional


  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C) for about 5 minutes.
  2. While the air fryer is heating up, take the steaks out of the refrigerator and allow them to come to room temperature. This helps ensure even cooking.
  3. Season both sides of the steaks with salt and pepper. You can use your favorite steak seasoning as well if desired.
  4. Brush each steak with olive oil. This will help the steaks brown and crisp up nicely in the air fryer.
  5. Place the steaks in the preheated air fryer basket, making sure there’s enough space between them to allow for proper air circulation. You may need to cook them one at a time if your air fryer is small.
  6. Cook the steaks in the air fryer for about 8-12 minutes, flipping them halfway through the cooking time, for medium-rare. Adjust the time for your desired level of doneness (e.g., 10-14 minutes for medium).
  7. While the steaks are cooking, prepare the garlic butter. In a small saucepan, melt the butter over low heat. Add the minced garlic and cook for about 2-3 minutes, or until the garlic is fragrant but not browned. You can also add some fresh herbs at this stage, like rosemary or thyme, for extra flavor.
  8. Once the steaks are done, remove them from the air fryer and let them rest for a few minutes. Resting allows the juices to redistribute within the steak, resulting in a juicier final product.
  9. Serve the steaks hot, drizzled with the garlic butter sauce. You can also brush the garlic butter on top of the steaks for added flavor.
  10. Enjoy your air fryer steaks with garlic butter alongside your favorite sides like mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad.
