  • First, preheat air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Season both sides of steaks with sea salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder. Place steaks in air fryer basket.
  • Once air fryer is preheated, place basket in air fryer.
  • Air fry for about 9 to 11 minutes. The thicker the steak, the longer it will take to cook through.
  • Use meat thermometer to test internal temperature. A medium rare steak is about 135 degrees Fahrenheit internally. See blog post above for specific cooking times and temperatures.
  • Finally, remove from heat. Allow steak to sit for 5 minutes to retain its juices. Then, top with sliced butter, herbs, or steak sauce if desired.


  • I used boneless ribeye steaks for this recipe.  They were about 1 inch thick.
  • All air fryers are different so cooking time may vary.  Thicker or thinner steaks will require different cooking times.
  • I cooked mine 10 minutes for medium.
  • Use a meat thermometer to check temperature of steak.
  • For rare, air fry about 8 minutes, medium rare 9 minutes, medium 10 minutes, medium well 11 minutes and well done 12+ minutes.  These are all according to my air fryer and may vary depending on which brand you have.
  • I have the Ninja Foodi Indoor Grill which has an air fryer setting.  
  • Store leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days.
