Air Fryer Steak (Cooked to Perfection) Recipe

Air-frying everything has been my goal for weeks.  My new favourite is air-fried steak. 

– 2 strips steaks (loin, 1.25" thick; or use any steaks of your choosing) – 2 tsp. salt (plus more to taste) – 2 tsp. black pepper (plus more to taste) – 2 Tbsp. butter (melted)

Ingredients

Salt and pepper steaks on a tray and refrigerate uncovered for 2-3 days. Paper towels blot juices every 12 hours.
