  • Pre-heat air fryer to 400F for 5 minutes. Lay steak on a cutting board and begin with brushing 1/2 tablespoon of avocado oil on one side of steak. Season with 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Flip and repeat on the other side of the steak.
  • Cook in already preheated air fryer for 10 minutes on each side for rare steak. For a rare steak internal temp is 130F, medium rare = 135F, medium = 140F, medium well = 150F, well done = 160F


  • Make sure your steak is at least 1 inch thick and 1.5 pounds so it browns nicely before the inside overcooks.
  • Brushing with oil helps to form a crust.  Don't skip this step!
  • You can use the suggested seasoning or you can use whatever you like.
  • Nutrition is for 4 ounces of cooked sirloin steak
