Don’t worry, this is not some exotic preparation for your next steak; it is, in fact, a wicked simple way to enhance the flavor of most any steak, in any way you choose to prepare it, on the grill, in a skillet or broiler, or in the air fryer.
You can also use your choice of vinegar, so how simple is that?
In this case, I have gone with T-Bone steak in the air fryer (because our grill ran out of gas) with fig balsamic vinegar.
And it was TASTY!
*One of our local markets carries a line of seasonings and condiments from the St Elmo Steakhouse in Indianapolis, and we have been very happy with them.
As I said, this is wicked simple.
Bring your steak(s) to room temperature, then go over both sides with a meat tenderizer (that multi blade black thing in the background).
Note: No tenderizer? No problem! Simply stick a fork all over both sides of the steak(s) and set aside.
Drizzle the steak(s) with the vinegar, then rub the seasoning in.
Turn the steak(s) over and repeat.
Let rest for 30 minutes.
When ready to cook, heat your air fryer to 400º (or heat your grill).
Arrange the steaks on the rack and cook for ten minutes, then turn the steaks over and cook for another five to seven minutes, until the steaks are done to your liking.
Note: air fryers ware different. Some will cook faster than others. I did ours for five minutes on each side for medium rare, and really could have gone a bit longer, so do check your steak(s)’ progress.
When done to your liking cover the steak(s) loosely with foil and let rest for about five minutes before serving.
If your grill hasn’t rub out of gas, or you’d rather fry them, cook the steak(s) as you will and enjoy. They will be tasty any way you choose to make them.
