Air Fryer Steak

Almost immediately after posting  the first part of my favorite things post yesterday, I got people asking how I cook steak in the air fryer.  So I thought I would post it. Please note this technique isn’t my creation. I got the technique from Bailey Fisher at her wonderful blog, The Whole Kitchen Sink.  It’s not a small batch cooking blog but you should go check it out anyway. Bailey’s food is always delicious. You are going to want to adjust the cooking time according. To the thickness of your steak and preferred level doneness.


From the Whole Kitchen Sink

your choice of steak

Your choice of seasoning blend,  my favorite seasoning blends are magic mushroom powder and just about any seasoning blend from Primal Palate

Preheat your air fryer to 400  degrees while you prepare your steak. Pat your steak dry.  Brush with a little oil and liberally sprinkle both sides of the steak with your choice of spices.  Place the steak in the basket and set the timer for 6 minutes then flip the steak and cook for 6 more minutes. Let stand a few minutes before eating.

Cranberry Tuna Salad (Whole 30)

Is it too early to start with the  cranberry recipes?  The answer to that is hell no, it’s never too early for  cranberry  recipes.  Every year when fall hits and pumpkin spice is everywhere and in everything,  I try to find recipes that use the very under rated cranberry. 

This years cranberry festivities  are starting with a simple recipe for tuna salad.  The original says it tastes just like the cranberry tuna salad you get at Whole Foods.  I can’t speak to that because I have never had it.  I can speak to this is a very tasty tuna recipe that doesn”t have that strong fishy taste tuna salad recipes sometimes have.

Rather than serving this as a sandwich, I like to serve it on a bed of salad greens or stuffed in mini bell peppers.
