4️⃣Flip the steak: After 10 minutes, remove the basket from the air fryer and flip the steak over. Cook for an additional five to ten minutes or until desired doneness is reached.

5️⃣Rest the steak: Remove the cooked steak from the air fryer and place it on a plate or cutting board. Allow the steak to rest for three to five minutes before cutting. This allows the juices to redistribute throughout the steak.
