  • Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Chicago steak seasoning or seasoning of your choice on each side of two 6 oz. filet mignon steaks. Pat down the seasoning.

  • Add to a covered plate and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or up to overnight to marinate. When ready to cook, brush each side of both steaks with 1 tablespoon each of olive oil. Place the filets on the rack in the air fryer and cook for approximately 4 minutes at 390°F.

  • After 4 minutes, flip the filets and cook for approximately 4 minutes more. Remove the air fried steaks and top each filet with 1 tablespoon garlic butter. Let the steaks rest for 10 minutes before cutting.

  • Using thick steaks. If your steaks are thicker than the steaks shown here, you may need to cook them for an extra minute on each side.
  • Use a meat thermometer. To
    check if the steaks have reached your desired degree of doneness, we
    always recommend using a meat thermometer. If they aren’t quite where
    you need them to be, cook them for a minute longer on each side until
    you reach the desired results.
  • Cut against the grain. Always
    cut the steak against the grain for the most tender bites of steak. The
    grain looks like lines running through the steak. You will easily be
    able to see them before and after cooking.
