If you're looking for a perfect sear, this quick and easy Air Fryer Steak recipe is just the ticket. You'll just need to season up a filet mignon, ribeye, or even sirloin with some salt and pepper, then pop it in the air fryer for 10 minutes or so.
Preheat a 6-quart air fryer to 400°F.
Add the steaks to the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure none of the sides are touching. Cook in the preheated air fryer for 10 minutes per every inch of thickness, flipping over halfway through cooking.
During the last few minutes, begin checking the internal temperature with a meat thermometer. For rare you'll want 120-130 °F, Medium-rare is 130-135 °F, Medium is 135-145 °F, and Medium-well is 145-155 °F.
