Air Fryer Ribeyes – How to Cook a Steak in the Air Fryer
Delicious Greek Marinated Ribeyes Cooked in the Air Fryer
Do you have an air fryer? I am completely obsessed with my air fryer. It is AMAZING! I actually have two air fryers. I know – crazy! Air fryers are great for just about everything – chicken, pizza, fries, frozen snacks, and even steaks. Yep. You can cook a steak in the air fryer! It is so simple and tastes amazing! Perfect if you don’t have a grill or don’t want to fool with setting up the grill.
Quick and Easy Steak Marinade
We always marinate our steaks before cooking. We typically use Dale’s Steak Marinade or some soy sauce and Worcestershire. This time I went for a simple Greek-Style marinade with olive oil, lemon, garlic, oregano, salt, pepper, and a dash of red pepper flakes. SO good! You can marinate the steaks for a few hours or overnight. I like to marinate the steaks as long as possible.
How to Cook a Steak in the Air Fryer
We typically cook our steaks on the grill or on the stove and finish them off in the oven. Since Ribeyes are so fatty, they are perfect for the air fryer. No grill flare-ups or smoking up the kitchen!
One of the things I love about the air fryer is that you don’t have to preheat it before cooking. You can preheat it for a few minutes if you like, but it isn’t necessary. Just season the steak, place in the air fryer basket and cook until it reaches the desired temperature. No need to flip the steak while it is cooking. The air fryer circulates the hot air around the food for you.
How Long to Cook a Steak in the Air Fryer
You will want to have a meat thermometer on hand when cooking steaks in the air fryer for best results. The cooking time is going to vary depending on the thickness of the steak. The times below are an average cooking time for most steaks. For medium rare you are looking for an internal temperature of 140ºF and 155ºF for Medium. Keep in mind that the meat will continue to cook and increase an additional 5ºF once removed from the air fryer.
