Instructions Checklist
  • Combine steaks, soy sauce, olive oil, and seasoning in a large resealable bag. Marinate meat for at least 2 hours.

  • Remove steaks from bag and discard the marinade. Pat excess oil off the steaks.

  • Add about 1 tablespoon water to the bottom of the air fryer pan to prevent it from smoking during the cooking process.

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  • Add steaks to air fryer and cook for 7 minutes. Turn steaks and cook for another 7 minutes until steak is medium rare. For a medium steak, increase the total cook time to 16 minutes, flipping steak after 8 minutes.

  • Remove steaks, keep warm, and let sit for about 4 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can start marinating the steak in the morning before you leave for work and then cook it at night.

Ok so I'm new to air frying just bought one a few months ago. All the recipes I found for ribeye steaks were for grilling only grilling in November in Idaho isn't all that feasible so when I found this method I decided to give it a try. The author was vague as to which pan to use. My air fryer came with three options; a slatted grill type basket and a solid pan. After much consideration I decided to use the pan so the steaks would cook in their juices. Also the author assumes we all have steak seasoning on hand which I did not so I made my own. Mix in a small cup 1.5 tsp salt 1.5 tsp pepper 1.5 tsp garlic powder half tsp paprika half tsp onion powder quarter tsp rosemary quarter tsp thyme. Then I spooned out the 4 tsp and added to oil and soy sauce in a gallon zip lock bag. Added steaks. Squeeze out air. Put flat in fridge. Again the author was vague but I know how to cook and meat should never be cooked from a cold state so I marinated the steaks for 2 hours in the fridge turning every hour to mix. Then I took them out and let them come to room temp on the counter for another 4-6 hours. Super good! Read More

Fine for the winter months when you can't grill. Steak did turn out nice and pink and juicy but the texture was different than with grilling. Read More

Made as written and this turned out pretty good. It was too salty though and I like salt. Grilling is still the way to go in my opinion but if weather doesn't permit, this is a great stand-by method. Read More

My husband was so upset I was putting our rib eyes in the air fryer...until they came out! He was amazed. I used my own seasonings. The timing on this is perfect! When it is just the two of us we will prob never grill our steak again. Read More

Very good. The ready in 2 h 25m is wrong. It's ready in about 20 or 30. Good taste for sure. Read More
