Air-Fried Steak

A marinated rib eye steak, cooked in the air fryer is simply delicious. After French fries, the first thing I ever made in the air fryer was a steak, and I was sold instantly! The high heat blowing around the confined space of the air fryer not only browns the meat nicely, but cooks it quickly, keeping the steak juicy and moist. In addition, when you cook a steak in the air fryer, there’s no splatter anywhere in your kitchen, so it happens to be the tidiest way to cook a steak as well. Pre-heat the air fryer for a quick two minutes and roughly ten minutes later you’ll be enjoying a delicious medium-rare steak. You might never cook a steak on a grill again!

Sauce for Steak

Horseradish sauce goes so nicely with steak. To make a quick horseradish sauce to accompany this meal, combine 2 tablespoons of sour cream with 1 tablespoon of fresh horseradish, 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh chives or parsley, a little salt and some freshly ground black pepper. Stir it together and dollop on the side or serve it in a small bowl so everyone can take their own.

Or, if you want to go all out, why not make a Bearnaise sauce to go with this steak? Bearnaise sauce is a derivative of Hollandaise sauce with a tarragon reduction added to it. You can make both sauces in the blender without having to whisk anything together. Check out the video here to see how to make a blender Hollandaise. You’ll be impressing your guests as well as yourself in no time!

Marinated Rib-Eye Steak with Herb Roasted Mushrooms

  • Prep Time: 12 m
  • Marinating Time: 2 h
  • Total Time: 2 h 12 m
  • Servings:
    2

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 2 (8-ounce) boneless rib-eye steaks
  • coarsely ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms stems trimmed and caps halved
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • chopped fresh chives or parsley

Instructions

  1. Combine the Worcestershire sauce and red wine in a shallow baking dish or zipper sealable plastic bag. Add the steaks to the marinade, pierce them several times with the tines of a fork or a meat tenderizer and season them generously with the coarsely ground black pepper. Flip the steaks over and pierce the other side in a similar fashion, seasoning again with the coarsely ground black pepper. Marinate the steaks for 2 hours.
  2. Pre-heat the air fryer to 400ºF.
  3. Toss the mushrooms in a bowl with the olive oil, parsley, thyme, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Transfer the steaks from the marinade to the air fryer basket, season with salt and scatter the mushrooms on top.
  4. Air fry the steaks for 10 minutes for medium-rare, 12 minutes for medium, or 15 minutes for well-done, flipping the steaks once half way through the cooking time.
  5. Serve the steaks and mushrooms together with the chives or parsley sprinkled on top. A good steak sauce or some horseradish would be a nice accompaniment.
  6. TIP: Horseradish sauce goes nicely with this steak. Mix together 2 tablespoons of sour cream with 1 tablespoon of fresh horseradish, 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh chives or parsley, a little salt and some freshly ground black pepper.

    I agree that steak in the airfryer is so moist and it take s just a few minutes. I make the steak fries from your cookbook too. Delish. I never thought of using paprika on steak fries. Thanks so much.

    I finally cooked my first steak in my air fryer. It came out perfectly! I like mine medium and the six minutes was just right! The steak was so tender too. Thanks!

  3. I’m looking forward to making this in my air fryer, my question is – I have bone-in rib eye steaks, will the cook time be the same? Thank you for your time and recipe!

    1. Hi Beth. The time will depend entirely on how thick the steaks are. If the steaks are about 1″ thick, I would give it 10 minutes at 400ºF for medium.

    We loved this recipe for marinated steak w/ mushrooms! I’m watching calories and red meats, Slicing the steak into strips made me feel like I wasn’t getting less serving of meat. Very flavorful. I also added another min to each side, as it was too rare for me. Thanks, Meredith!

    1. Yes, you can definitely use sirloin. The cooking time will only change based on the thickness of your steak. A steak that is an inch thick should take 10 minutes at 400ºF to get to medium-rare. It’s better to rely on how the steak feels and looks than to rely on a time. If you see red juices on top of the steak, it is going past medium.

    1. Hi Yen. The timing in the recipe is for 1-inch ribeye steaks so you would need to add a minute or two to each side for a thicker cut. I suggest adding a couple minutes to the timing of your desired temperature and then check the temperature of the steak with an instant read thermometer. You can always air fry an additional minute or two if necessary.
