Equipment

  • Air Fryer

Ingredients

  • 2 (10 to 12 ounces EACH) sirloin steaks, about one inch thick, and at room temperature which is important for proper and even cooking.
  • ½ tablespoon olive oil OR olive oil cooking spray, for the steaks
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • ½ tablespoon paprika, sweet or smoked
  • ½ tablespoon freshly round black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons dried herbs of choice

Instructions 

  • Preheat Air Fryer to 400˚F. Rub both steaks with olive oil, or spray with cooking spray, and set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl combine salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, pepper, and dried herbs. This makes enough seasoning for about 4 large steaks.
  • Rub preferred amount of seasoning all over the steaks. Store leftover seasoning blend in a small airtight container and keep in a cool, dry place.
  • Place 1 steak in the Air Fryer basket and cook for 6 minutes at 400˚F.
    If you have a bigger Air Fryer, both steaks can fit in at the same time, but just make sure they aren’t one on top of the other. You want a little space between the two.
    Flip over the steak and continue to cook for 4 to 5 more minutes, or until cooked through.
  • Please use an Instant Read Thermometer to check for doneness; for RARE steak, temperature should register at 125˚F to 130˚F. For Medium-Rare, you want an internal temperature of 135˚F.
    IF the steak isn’t cooked through, it may be too thick and you’ll want to return the steak to the air fryer and give it a minute or two to finish cooking.
    Repeat cooking method with the other steak.
  • Remove from air fryer and let rest for 5 to 8 minutes before cutting. Serve with a pat of butter and garnish with chopped parsley.
