Whether you’re working in the garden, the kitchen or any project, having the right tool makes all the difference. In this case, the air fryer is a wonderful device that makes a healthy addition to the kitchen. Yes, the word “fryer” brings along some unhealthy connotations. Fortunately the air fryer makes it possible to get similar results without all the messy, smelly fuss of deep fat frying because it uses air, not super heated oils.
Our thanks to Past Featured Chef Aimee Wilson for this air fryer walk through. This steak was perfectly crispy on the outside and juicy on the inside, just like it should be. Using the air fryer for cooking steaks is such a good mom hack and it makes cooking proteins so much easier. As you’ll see below, cooking with an air fryer is quick and convenient.

- 1 Grass fed steak cut of your choice (I prefer US Wellness Meats)
- 2 tbsp of olive oil
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- Crank the air fryer up to 400 degrees and let Pre-heat for five minutes.
- While the air fryer is pre heating, drizzle the olive oil on both sides of the steak and salt. Let rest for a minute so it soaks up the oil and salt.
- Open the air fryer drawer and put in the steak. Set your timer for 3.5 minutes. If you’d like your steak cooked medium well, set the timer for 4 minutes instead*
- Once the timer goes off, open the fryer drawer, flip the steak, and reset your timer for 3.5 minutes. If you’d like your steak cooked medium well, set the timer for 4 minutes instead*
- Once the final timer turns off, open the dryer drawer, take out the steak, and let rest for at least 5 minutes. Once rested, cut against the grain and enjoy!
