“Cooking steak in an air-fryer gives you a crispy outside and juicy inside.” – Abigail Donnelly


  • For the café de Paris butter:
  • 20 g parsley
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 125 g butter
  • 1 t curry powder
  • ½ ground turmeric
  • 1 Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • ½ t paprika
  • salt, to taste
  • For the steak:
  • 2 x 150 g rib-eye steaks
  • 2 T olive oil
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • frozen chips, cooked, for serving

Cooking Instructions

1. Blend the butter ingredients until smooth. Place into a bowl, cover and chill.

2. Preheat the air-fryer to 200°C. Rub the steaks with olive oil and season.

3. Place the steaks in the air-fryer basket and cook to your liking as per notes below.

4. While the steaks are resting, place the butter into a bowl and melt in the air-fryer for 5 minutes at 180°C.

5. To serve, slice the steaks and pour over the butter. Serve with frozen potato chips cooked in the air-fryer at 180°C for 10–15 minutes.

Cook's tip: For a rare steak, set the time on your air-fryer to 10 minutes at 200°C and turn the meat after 5 minutes. For a medium steak, set the time to 12 minutes and turn at 6 minutes. Rest the steak for 3 minutes.
