  • 2 6oz filet steaks about ¾ inch thick
  • 1 Tablespoon avocado oil
  • 1 Tablespoon montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon butter
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • Ground black pepper
  • Dried or fresh parsley


  1. Prepare the steaks. Place the filets onto a clean plate and pat them dry with a clean paper towel.
  2. Season the steaks. Brush both sides of each piece of steak with some oil and generously season both sides of each filet with the Montreal steak seasoning.
  3. Cook. Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F and place the steaks into the air fryer basket about 1 inch apart and cook for 4 minutes. Flip each piece of steak over and cook for 4 more minutes (see cooking chart below).
  4. Serve. Remove the steaks from the air fryer and place them onto a clean plate. Top each steak with a pat of butter, some parsley, a pinch of sea salt and some black pepper. Place a piece of foil loosely over the steak and let them rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing and serving. Serve warm with your favorite steakhouse sides.

Recipe Notes 

Cooking time recommendations for steak that is about 5-6 ounces. Add about 1 minute more per ounce for larger steaks and subtract 1 minute for smaller steaks
Rare - 6-8 minutes
Medium - 8-10 minutes
Well done - 12-15 minutes
Make sure you let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes before serving to allow the juices to redistribute into the steak.
The butter topping is optional but takes the flavor of this recipe to the next level.
