Sometimes it is just too hot (or rainy) to head outside and grill awesome steaks. Using this foolproof Vortex Air Fryer Steak method you can have amazing steaks at any time. Don’t forget the butter – it is a game-changer if you have never had it on steaks before!

Vortex Air Fryer Steak Cook Times:

You will need to adjust the cook time to your preference of doneness. These are estimates, please use a thermometer to truly see how done your steak is. Cook times can vary due to thickness and surrounding temps.

Steak Doneness Vortex Cook Time Final Cooked Temperature
Rare 8 minutes 130 to 140°F
Medium Rare 10 minutes 145°F
Medium 12 minutes 160°F
Well Done 13 minutes 170°F

 

We recommend this thermometer to testing temps…

Keyword: Vortex Air Fryer
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes

Equipment

  • Vortex Air Fryer

Ingredients

  • 1 lb Steaks (New York Strips or Ribeyes) Of course any smaller steak will work - too big and they won't fit
  • 3 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp softened butter
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 1 tbsp parsley

Instructions

  • Mix the butter, a little Worcestershire, parsley, and garlic in a bowl.
  • Plop on wax paper or parchment and roll into a tube. Freeze it while prepping/cooking steaks.
  • Pat the steaks dry. Salt and Pepper the steaks and cover with Worcestershire sauce. Use a fork to pierce the steaks and force the seasoning in and tenderize.
  • Marinate the steaks in Worcestershire sauce in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove the steaks and let them sit on the counter for 30. Room temp is best!
  • Preheat your Vortex Air Fryer to 400' with the grate in it (if you have one)
  • CAREFULLY open the fryer and place the steaks on the grate
  • Cook for five minutes and flip
  • Take the steak out and let it rest for five minutes before eating.
  • Cut a sliver of the garlic butter and place on the hot steak

This is a great one to pair with our Absolutely Awesome Vortex Twice Stuffed Baked Potatoes!

    We are a 1st time owner/operator of an air fryer. LOL
    Has anyone ever cooked meat and baked potatoes at the same time? Thanks.

    • vortexrecipes on December 29, 2019 at 2:36 pm

      Yes, I do all the time. Just make sure the potatoes are above the steak or the drippings will fall into the steak! Let us know how it goes!

      I’m having trouble (with meats in general) not overcooking a smaller steak. I’m not a big meat eater but am trying to eat more! This is just disheartening. Thanks in advance!

        The Vortex cooks faster than most air fryers I have used. Depending on the size of the steak you REALLY have to watch cook times and temps. The ones above are for a half-pound steak. 6oz may only need 5 minutes. Trying lowering the temp to 350 if you are still overcooking. Altitude and outside temp can greatly affect cook times/temps. We are in FL. You may need more or less in northern states.

        Like I said the Vortex cooks quickly so if the steak is small make sure it is on the lowest rack. Keeping it further from the fan will help it from being overcooked.

    I would like to have recipes for my Vortex air fryer

    Directions are not clear. I cook for 5 minutes and flip. Then do I cook another 5 minutes, or after flipping do I let them rest?

    • vortexrecipes on January 2, 2020 at 1:57 pm

      Cook for five minutes then flip and cook for another 5 minutes…or less. Just depends on how done you want your steaks!

    What setting should I use? Bake, Broil or Airfry?
