How do I make the Air Fryer Ribeye Steak with Herbed Butter?

Step 1: Make the Herbed Butter

Start off by making the herbed butter, as it will need about 2 hours to chill in the refrigerator before using it. Finely chop the sage leaves and fresh thyme leaves. Then, mince up the fresh garlic. In a small mixing bowl, add the softened salted butter, freshly minced garlic, chopped sage and chopped thyme. Mix together until well combined. Place the herbed butter into a plastic wrap and roll into a log. Place in the refrigerator for 2 hours to chill.

Step 2: Prepare the ribeye steaks

Place the steaks on a large plate and drizzle on the avocado oil. Then, sprinkle the steaks with black pepper, salt and Italian herbs making sure they are well coated.

Step 3: Cook the steaks

Place the steak in the Air Fryer and cook for 7 to 8 minutes at 400 degrees Fahrenheit or until they reach desired degree of doneness. Make sure to turn steaks over with tongs after 4 minutes.
 
*Pro Tip-Use a meat thermometer to reach preferred degree of doneness for steaks: Rare = 125 F, Medium-rare = 135 F, Medium = 145 F, Medium-well = 155 F, Well-done  160 F
 

Step 4: Remove from air fryer and top with herbed butter

Transfer the steaks to a serving plate. Divide the herbed butter in half and place one half on each steak. Allow to rest for a few minutes, so butter and marinade can infuse steak. Then, serve and enjoy!

How do I serve the Air Fryer Steak?

This delicious ribeye steak can be served with the herbed butter all by itself. However, to make it a complete meal I like to prepare a Basil Cucumber Tomato Salad for a starter. Then, I make Roasted Air Fryer Red Potatoes as side dish with the steak. However, there are plenty of other fantastic side dishes that go well with this easy steak recipe. Here are some simple ideas:
