How to Reheat Steak in Air Fryer

The air fryer is a great way to cook steak and other meats, but you may be wondering how to reheat steak in the air fryer so that it is just as juicy and delicious as when you first cooked it. The key is to reheat the steak in increments so that it is reheated evenly without drying out or becoming overcooked. The following easy air fryer instructions for reheating steak will help you achieve perfectly reheated steak every time!


This method works well for all types of steak, from filet mignon to ribeye to sirloin. It also works with leftover steak from restaurant meals or from a steak dinner at home, and it is perfect for both frozen and refrigerated leftovers.

Steak: Any cut of steak, even steak that has been sliced up, will do.
Butter: To keep the steak juicy during cooking, I like to use genuine butter.
Pepper: Pepper boosts some of the flavour and is optional.
Salt: Salt enhances the flavour of the steak and is optional.

PRO HINT: To keep the steak particularly juicy, add a little pat of butter to each steak or thin slices spread out on sliced steak.

To begin, make sure that the steak is at room temperature. It is also a good idea to spray or brush the steak with cooking oil before placing it in the air fryer. The oil/butter helps the steak to reheat evenly and adds flavor as well.

Place the steak in the air fryer and set the timer to 5 minutes. When the timer goes off, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature of the steak. If it is still a little colder than you like, return the steak to the air fryer for another 2-3 minutes. Repeat this process until the steak reaches your desired doneness.

If you don't have a meat thermometer, you can also test the temperature of the steak by pressing it with your finger or cutting into it with a knife. This is a good way to judge whether the steak is hot enough to eat or not, but it isn't as accurate as using a meat thermometer.

The reason why the air fryer is so much better than the oven for reheating steak is that it heats up the food more evenly. In the oven, food often becomes overcooked on the outside before it is warmed in the middle. With the air fryer, however, this problem is eliminated because the hot air circulates and cooks all sides of the steak equally.

Another way to improve the reheating process is to place the steak in the air fryer in a single layer. This allows the hot air to reach all parts of the steak more easily and quickly. It also helps prevent the steak from getting soggy on the bottom and dripping onto the bottom of the air fryer.


After reheating the steak, remove it from the air fryer and serve immediately with your favorite side dishes. We recommend serving it with roasted vegetables, a salad, or mashed potatoes. It also pairs well with a sandwich or as a topping on pizza. Enjoy!
