Why Air Fry Steak?

Listen, if you have an air fryer and you have not yet air fried steak, pork chop, or fish, then you are missing. Uniquely, the air fryer cooks steak phenomenally well. You will have juicy, tasty meat and no messes! I still remember the struggles of making steak on the stovetop (a lot of oil and the splashes; yikes). Gladly, making NY strip steak in an air fryer (or any steak) eliminates these struggles.

Basically, you will need a good steak, a little oil, seasoning, and the air fryer! It cooks quicker with the air circulating, and there are no splashes. If you are always on the go (like yours truly), busy, and booked, then the air fryer is necessary. You can meal prep all your food for the week, be it steak, fish, or veggies.

Thanks for sharing.
