How to Make Air Fried Steak in the Ninja Foodi
As always, let’s start by gathering our ingredients. In this case our ingredients are quite simple. Steak, a little bit of avocado oil and salt and pepper. We actually order a half of a cow from a local farm in upstate New York for farm raised beef. But sometimes, I want a small steak for myself when the rest of the family is not in the move, or we don’t pull big hug of beef from the freezer. These single filet mignons are perfect! You can also order them online here: grass fed filet migon.
Each steak is vacuum sealed, and the perfect single serving of 5oz.
I love that the beef is also grass fed and finished, no added hormones or antibiotics.
Start by removing the steak from the package and lightly coat with a little avocado oil. This is my favorite avocado oil spray. It doesn’t have any propellants. You can get it online here: avocado oil.
Next, season with salt and pepper to taste. I am not a big salt and pepper person, but I do like a tiny sprinkle of salt.

Now it’s time to break out the Ninja Foodi. This thing is amazing! It is a pressure cooker, slow cooker, air fryer, dehydrator, and more all in one. It makes meal prep a breeze and last minute cooking ideas easy. If you don’t have one yet you can get it online here: Ninja Foodi.

When you want to know how to cook steak in the Ninja Foodi Im sure there may be a few ways. This is my way. For this air fryer steak recipe we will be using the silver rack with the rack towards the top of the pot.
Since we are using the air fryer option of the Foodi you do not need to add water to the bottom of the pot. Go ahead and place your steak onto the wire rack.
Close the air fryer lid (the lid that is attached to the foodi, not the pressure cook lid). Select the air fryer/air crisp option. Set your temp to 375 and time to 17 minutes. Then press start. At the midpoint (around 8 minutes) open the lid to your foodi and flip your air fryer steak over.
Air Fryer Steak
Granted, everyone prefers a different level of cooked when it comes to steak in air fryer. This air fryer steak recipe will leave a nice pink center to your filet. If you prefer your air fry steak to be a bit more cooked, then I suggest setting your foodi for 20 minutes.
Serve with your favorite side and enjoy.
