Some Ideas

What Kind of Pork Meat to Use for Steak?

My opinion and that of many is that pork shoulder steak is the most suitable to be fried both in the pan and on the grill, especially if it is a little marbled, that is, it contains threads of fat inside. During frying, these fats will melt, leaving the meat very juicy and soft, with a unique taste; it looks like a ribeye steak and which I recommend you try in the ribeye steak in air fryer recipe.

Why Did I Choose to Make Pork Steak in Air Fryer?

There are days when I would eat something tasty, but I don’t feel like cooking, sit next to the pan and be careful not to overcook the steak too much, and fill the whole kitchen and clothes with the smell of frying and so on.

Why Use Cosori XL Combo Air Fryer?

In those days, I prefer to use my air fryer, a Cosori XL Combo, which in my opinion is the best on the market at the moment, which makes my work a lot easier. Because I can set the appliance to what temperature and how long to fry the meat depending on how well you want it to be cooked (rare, medium or well done), or use the presets of the air fryer, and you don’t have to bother with the rest.

Ingredients

The amount of meat we need depends on the number of servings we want; usually, a steak per person will calculate. But because in our family, women eat one and men usually two pieces, I will average and fry about five slices for three servings.

So you need about three and a half pounds (1.1 lb) of pork shoulder steak for three generous servings, so I bought it whole and sliced it at home.

Preparing the Pork Steaks

The simplicity of the recipe also refers to seasoning; after slicing the meat, wipe the slices generously with a paper towel so that they are well dried, and season them with a half of teaspoons of sea salt and a half of teaspoons of freshly ground pepper on both sides.

That’s it, the meat is ready for frying.

Preparing the Air Fryer

Because the cooking or frying time in the air fryer is short (about 8 minutes), preheating the appliance first is a good idea. To do this, set the air fryer to 205 C (401 F) for four minutes and press start.

After the four minutes have passed, take the basket out of the air fryer and place parchment paper inside (don’t preheat it with this parchment paper), which helps me to clean easier the appliance later.

Frying the Meat

Although we don’t need oil to cook the pork steak in the air fryer, if you want to spray a little oil on the parchment paper so it doesn’t stick to the meat, then place the slices of meat in the basket.
