If until now, I used to prepare the famous easy pan-fried steak, which is still one of my favourites, now I will make a delicious ribeye steak in my air fryer. You will see that the simpler the recipe, the more delicious the steak will be.

Why in Air Fryer?

First of all, because you don’t have to sit next to the pan to fry, turn and baste the steak, you preheat the air fryer, put the steak inside and after a few minutes, it’s ready.

So it gives you a certain freedom of movement, you can do something else during this time (for example salad), and you can be sure that the steak will always come out the same, there is no possibility to overcook it.

And last but not least, because it is healthier if we use very little or no oil and there the meat is no burn, will be cooked perfectly.

One Ingredient

The simplicity of this recipe is also given by the fact that we only need ribeye steak, a 250 g (0.5 lb) slice if you cook only for one person.

Try to buy slices of ribeye steak matured for at least 28 days and sliced at least 2.5 cm (1 inch) thick, and the meat contains some fat inside, to be marbled, only then you will get great aromas, and the steak will be soft and tasty.

Preparing the Meat

Either way, you will cook the steak; remember it is good to take it out of the fridge and leave it at room temperature at least half an hour before. I usually keep it wallpapered in a paper towel to absorb excess water or moisture from the meat, leaving it much drier.

After that, season it with sea salt flakes, freshly ground black pepper and a little garlic powder to enhance the flavour.

During this time, I preheat the air fryer to 205 Celsius for four minutes; my Cosori air fryer has a presets button for preheating. After preheating, line the drawer with parchment paper, not before heating, and spray with a bit of olive oil so that the meat does not stick.

Resting the Steak

Carefully remove the steak from a plate, taking care that the appliance is hot, and let it rest for about 3-4 minutes, after which it can be served.

Serving

I recommend serving it as I did, that is, on a bed of cherry tomato salad dressing over which I poured a little balsamic vinegar and a glass of beer next to it.
