If you don’t have a grill or just prefer not to fire it up, don’t want to make a mess on the stove top or in the oven, then cooking juicy steak in the Air Fryer might be the way to go.

Perfectly crispy on the outside, juicy on the inside, this steak recipe requires just 12 minutes to make and simple ingredients like salt, pepper, butter, cooking spray and steak.

This could also be called a “Steak for one” recipe.

Depending on the size of your Air Fryer and the size of the steak, you may be able to fit two steaks together inside.

If your Air Fryer is bigger (like the one I have – Phillips XXL), you can definitely cook two Ribeye steaks at once.

This recipe works for other cuts of steak like New York, Fillet Mignon or Denver Steak, but the cooking time will vary.
