Lightly coat steaks with olive oil. Season both sides of steaks with garlic powder (optional), salt and pepper (we'll usually season liberally with salt & pepper).
Preheat the Air Fryer at 400°F for 4 minutes.
Air Fry for 400°F for 10-18 minutes, flipping halfway though (cooking time dependent on how thick and cold the steaks are plus how done you prefer your steaks).If you want steaks to be cooked more, add additional 3-6 minutes cooking time.
Add pat of butter on top of steak, cover with foil and allow steak to rest for 5 minutes.Season with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Serve immediately.
Recipes were cooked in 3-4 qt air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, the recipe might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.
If cooking in more than two steaks, make sure not to overcrowd the Air Fryer basket. If needed, cook in batches to avoid overcrowding. The first batch will take longer to cook if Air Fryer is not already pre-heated.
Remember to set a timer to shake/flip/toss the food as directed in recipe.
